A Meaningful day at Hoi An Orphanage



It was a cold afternoon in January when “Tet Holiday” was just around the corner. Our Hoian Mates members visited the orphans at Hoian Orphanage. Having known that we were going to visit them, the children already gathered around the main gate to welcome us.


We gave them some small gifts, played with them and listened to their story. Although the gifts do not bring much material value, we know that we have brought love for the children, love between people. We did have a great time together.

It is unfortunate how these children are in a ripe age but have already lost a significant part of their childhood they had no one to give them a name, no one to understand and care for them, no one to take them out, and no opportunity to go to school.


Looking at the innocent faces and sad eyes because of the lack of love from family make us feel so emotional.

It really hard for us to say goodbye to them but we know that we will definitely come back soon. However, all the things we had done that afternoon would never be enough for them, we had brought a small part to make their Tet Holiday more meaningful.
