Traveling to Tam Ky
When we think of orphans we think of children without parents. That can also be the situation in Vietnam, but often babies and children are dropped off at orphanges and street children programs by the parents because of poverty, like the one in Tam Ky, a rural town south of DaNang.
Thursday, our hearts were stolen by the children at Tam Ky orphanage and Tam Ky Street Children Program. One of the most moving moments was meeting Nga,a beautiful 19 year old deaf girl. Children of Vietnam will be bringing her to DaNang, where she will join other young deaf adults at the Bread of Life. We will have her hearing evaluated and determine further opportunities for her education.
