In February 2023 our team made a visit to the Ngoc Van Orphanage in northern Khanh Hoa province. We had reached out to the caretakers beforehand and asked what supplies they needed this month. We wrote everything down, and on the day of the visit, stopped by local markets and loaded up a van with provisions.

When our team arrived, the children were so excited to see us. On this visit, we brought seasonings, cooking oil, rice noodles, packaged milk, fresh milk, ramen, sugar, dish soap, fabric softener, and laundry detergent.

As a fun treat for the little ones, we prepared flan with ice chips for everyone to enjoy. It was a lovely day!

This charity visit to the orphanage was made possible through the kind donations from Koshu Takatsuji, Daniel Cole, Alysha Sims, Minh Nguyen, Tuan Nguyen, Linhda Tran, Elaine Nguyen, and Linh Lam. Thank you!!!


Located in the northern part of Khanh Hoa province, the Ngoc Van Orphanage was founded in 2020 after a big storm hit central Vietnam. There were many deaths from the storm, and several orphans were brought to the Ngoc Van Pagoda to be cared for the monks there. Since then, the orphanage has grown and now cares for about 20 small children.
