The gift of a home!

Safe housing is something that most of us take for granted. In Vietnam, many families do not have the luxury of dry and safe housing. Our team has seen families in dire need of a home to protect their family. We have also seen families who have received new homes built by our donors.

On Saturday, we dedicated a house for a family that included a single mother and her daughter. There were smile of happiness and tears of gratitude. That same day, we visited a single mother with two daughters in need of a house. There, we saw tears of desperation. Children of Vietnam, with funding from Dining for Women, built the first house and plans to turn the tears of fear and sadness into tears of joy.
