In December 2021 we had a Christmas party with the children at the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We had coordinated with the caretakers and made a list of general supplies and foodstuff the home was in need of. Our team bought everything on the list and drove out to the home just before Christmas.

On this visit we brought bags of rice, boxes of instant noodles, packages of glass noodles, cooking oil, peanuts, chili sauce, dried fish, dried squid, detergent, and fabric softener.

The boys were happy to show our team their Christmas decorations and arts and crafts projects. We handed out Santa hats and everyone got Christmas presents. The boys received matching jackets that they were eager to try on. There were smiles all around!

This holiday visit was made possible through the kindhearted donations from the family of Dr Chad & Kim-Loan McDuffie and their children Delaney, Keagan & Anderson. Thank you!!!


The Suoi Dau Charity Home is located in Suoi Dau district near Suoi Cat, which are both poor communities to the west of Nha Trang composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Dau Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for a group of the community’s young boys whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The boys stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The boys all come from the ethnic Raglay minority group. Overseen by pastor Dam Nguyen, the caretakers who run the home provide a nurturing environment and ensure the children attend local public schools and provide after-school tutoring lessons.
