Despite all of the challenges we face in light of the current situation, Happy Planet Children has seen continued support for our fundraising efforts. Our work is not done. In fact, we’re just getting started! With your support, Sister Vinh will be able to carry forward her quest to help these deserving children.
I am thrilled to be sharing with you that one of the photos I took of Alina Van during a photo shoot in Saigon last November was selected as the face of 500px for March!
To make things better you need to challenge the things that are not good enough. Please join us in helping improve the lives of the orphaned and abandoned children at The Center for Innocent Children.
The Center for Innocent Children (Trường Khuyết Tật Bé Thơ) in Biên Hòa, Vietnam, was founded in 1990 by Sister Maria Daniel Vu Thi Vinh. Today, it is the home of 153 orphans, along with 58 children with disabilities.
Little is known about the circumstances that brought Vu Nguyen Thien An and his twin brother to this world. However, their daunting beginning is also a story that turns into resurgence and hope.
Annie Nguyen thinks that everything happens for a reason. She had been looking for a way to sponsor a child in Vietnam but hadn’t found the right opportunity; that is until now.
When Hannah and I discussed our fundraising goal for 2019, we originally decided to raise $5,000. We recently chose to kick it up a notch to $10,000 with the additional funds benefiting three organizations.
Xuân Mai and the other children from the center come from many places with different backgrounds and contexts. They have unique personalities and various needs. With our continued support, Sister Maria will be able to carry forward her quest to help these deserving children.
Every orphan has their own story. It is a story that often begins in suffering and despair. However, it is also a story of resurgence and hope. Today, I would like to share with you the story of Vu Nguyen Hong Ngoc.
To all of our friends, colleagues, and family, we ask that you consider supporting the Center for Innocent Children. Your donation will make a big impact in the lives of these deserving children.
