Through our involvement with welfare and charity groups in Australia and our travels through Asian countries, particularly Vietnam, we have seen first hand the impact poverty has on an individual’s ability to access health care & education, particularly in third world countries. Most people are not in a position to provide hands on support to those in need but through working together to raise funds, everyone has the opportunity to become involved. It is our dream to make a difference, however big or small so please help us to bring hope to the hearts and a smile to the faces of those who are suffering.
One of our beneficiaries is the TTe Phan Orphanage.
TTe Phan Orphanage (HCMC)
The Te Phan Orphanage currently provides a loving home for 57 orphaned children and adolescents, many of whom have physical and intellectual disabilities, including Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, Down Syndrome and Autism. These children have often been found abandoned on the streets and are often in very poor health when they arrive, suffering from malnutrition and psychological trauma. A brother and sister, who opened their very small home to these children who had nowhere else to go, run the orphanage with very little money and rely heavily on the support of others.
