At one and a half hours distance from Nha Trang, this peaceful orphanage in the countryside receives fewer visitors than most of our other causes. Founded in 1996 by Sister Nguyen Thi Bao Quyen, it resides behind the Giao Xu Phu Nhon Catholic Church. The orphanage is run by the nuns of Nhan Ai, and is not owned or operated by Lovingkindness Vietnam. They rely entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community. As one of the largest orphanages that we assist, they house approximately 130 orphans in this wonderfully tranquil home. Donations will go to the purchasing of food for the orphans, general upkeep of the orphanage, and periodic expenses.
To donate to this cause, click the Donate button, which can be found on any page of this site in the top right. From the PayPal form, include a comment to indicate that you wish the donation to go to Nhan Ai. You can also send us an email at email@example.com.
The easiest route is to take Tran Phu south, and follow the signs to Diamond Bay Resort. After crossing the Binh Tan Bridge, veer right, and stay on the main road. You’ll pass the Diamond Bay Resort and Wonderpark and after topping a lovely cape you’ll see the endless stretch of white sand on Cam Ranh’s peninsula, with a cluster of tin roofed cafés at Bai Dai Beach. Stay on the main road all the way past the Cam Ranh Airport. The road narrows and eventually leads you to the large Long Ho Bridge. Carry on over the bridge and you’ll link up with Highway 1A. Turn left towards Cam Ranh town. As you enter the modern downtown area, turn right at the sign for “Duong Tinh Lo 9” which is highway 9. It’s exactly 6 km from when you turn onto Highway 9 to the orphanage. Keep an eye out for a big blue sign reading “Long Van Hon Thong Nhat” over a left turn. This will take you to Phu Nhon Church, and around back the Mai Am Nhan Ai Orphanage.
