Dr. Thanh-Tam's annual trip to South East Asia to work with OBV staff and the children

Summer Break

This summer, beyond the usual activities and picnics, the children had other plans at home.

Some on them, in highschool, started studying their new subjects, while the rest of them reviewed what they had learnt the previous year. OBV'S House Mother created a schedule for them to include learning cross stitch, musical instruments, painting and other handicrafts. They had opportunities to bake a variety of cakes as well as create their own new dishes. All this happened while the skies were dark with rain clouds, and Saigon went under water a few times from the storms.

Children stated in own words reasons for having dolls:

Breakfast is served : steamed corn & milk

Art Therapy is used to process emotions, reduce stress & anxiety, alleviate frustration, reduce heart rate, improve physical health, and maximize creativity.

Children color and sing together so beautifully.

(Dr. Thanh-Tam)

Another day, another journey

It wasn't an easy trip: a bus ride, a motorbike taxi, a short trek....we were still able to reach Miss T. A child of 13 years old, porcelain features with a slight developmental delay that had recently become victim of sexual abuse...an easy target to the predators of her neighborhood.
