There are times in our lives when a moment touches us deep within our being. Such a moment happened to the COV team when we visited the Center for the Aged and Handicapped in Hoi An. We met a young man lying in a flat wheel cart. He spoke some English and interacted with us. Cory, one of our visitors, was very moved by his situation and asked if he would like a wheelchair that would allow him to sit up. His eyes lit up and he squealed with delight. Everyone was brought to tears. This young man will get a modified wheel chair and Cory has made a new friend.
Ben Wilson and a team of visitors arrived in DaNang on Wed, March 3 and were welcomed by the COV staff and children from the Street Children Program. The team visited a kindergarten, which is under construction and will be dedicated on March 11.
In addition, the group visited Tam Ky orphanage where they delivered toys and clothing to the children donated by residents from Winston-Salem.
On Tuesday, March 3, Ben Wilson and a group from COV went to visit a young girl with ichthyosis, a genetic skin condition. The team brought in lotions and clothing to assist with her treatment. A doctor was present to help with the use of the lotions and will follow-up with her care.
