Dear friends !
I am an Australian who has been living in Vietnam for two years. Through my business in Vietnam we do charity each month with a particular focus on feeding orphans.
Tinh Xa Ngoc Van is a Vietnamese Budhist temple that has built an amazing orphanage for 200 children at Tu Bong. It has recently opened but needs funding to take care of the children. There is a vision of education (particularly English) for the future and for the local children but at the moment they desperately need formula, nappies and mainly carers for the babies.
I have decided to come and live in the orphanage to help with the babies and to start teaching English to the monks and local children. Now they really need assistance, they are not getting a lot of funding and are struggling.
They have nine babies at the moment. They just received two more last week. They range in age from 14 days old to 17 months old. They also have two four year old children and a 10 year old boy.
Tai, Trung and Duc are the youngest babies. Tài, Trung và Đức là những em bé nhỏ nhất ở đây.
Duc has just turned one month old and Tai is two weeks old.
Đức vừa tròn một tháng tuổi và Tài được hai tuần tuổi.
Nghia and Trung are four month old twins who were one day old when left at the temple.
Nghĩa và Trung cặp sinh đôi được đưa vào chùa khi chỉ mới một ngày tuổi nay đã được bốn tháng.
Hien is five months old.
Hiền năm tháng tuổi.
Hau is seven months old.
Hieu is the only girl and is eight months old. She has just had the first operation in the series to close her cleft palate.
Hiếu tám tháng tuổi và là bé gái duy nhất vừa được phẩu thuật hàm ếch.
Phuc is seventeen months old and has mental and physical disabilities. He is unable to crawl and lift his head.
Phúc được tám tháng tuổi bị khuyết tật bẩm sinh, Phúc không thể tự bò và ngẩng đầu lên được.
We need to raise funds so they can take care of the children. The carers that they have are a wonderful group of ladies who smile and laugh and love the babies. They have a genuine love for their job.
What your money will buy:
3 000 000 VND ($185 Aus) wages for one carer a month
1 188 000 VND ($74 Aus) formula for baby aged under one month for a month
737 500 VND ($46 Aus) formula for a baby aged 6 - 12 months for a month
470 000 VND ($29 Aus) formula for a baby aged 12 plus months for a month
There is a cost involved in having a go fund me page with a little under 10% of your donation going to go fund me.
We really need your help.
I will be updating pictures and stories as I go.
Thank you all in advance for your help !!!
