Mr. Binh Nguyen, Director of OBV Vietnam is greeting doctor Thuy Do family at the airport
A couple of months ago, we had heard the news of doctor Thuy Do family would come and stay in Vietnam for more than six months to help OBV children. This is a huge plan, so we had prepared whatever we could do, and ready for other parts when they come...
Truly thinking, a sewing is a common and suitable profession. Although the children of OBV are still in school, the house management would like to establish a career for their future. So in preparation, management wanted to have some sewing machines for the children to practice, first is to fix the clothes, and then afterward, set for other stages.
This is my first trip and first time I have been, and stayed at the Western River longer than my previous trips that have bolted before this. I was able to lived, to perceived the love, and to understand the life and its people here.
Oct 11, 2013 we left Saigon at 5pm, in the sudden pouring rain, to begin our four days trip to two cities of Hau Giang and Bac Lieu. At 9:30 pm, we stopped at Can Tho for a night rest and continued to Hau Giang next morning.
After a month of "voyage" drifting in the sea, the statue of Mother Fatima has finally arrived safely and intact at the OBV house in Vietnam.
The house management quickly builds a temple for the statue. The position has been stationed. The only thing required is to enhance the scenery with green landscape to make it suitable and increases the worshiping of Mother.
One Body Village is pleased to recognize the contribution from the Asian Club at Norwalk Community College, its Board, and the college students. Despite their busy academic works, they have taken the time to research the subject of human trafficking, increase the awareness of this kind of victimization among their fellow students via presentations and meetings, and organize fundraising through bake sale and donations. They sent their proceeds to OBV so that "the funds would go for the best interest of the oppressed."
Even though classes had already started two weeks ago, today was the official date for the national new school year ceremony 2013. Today, everyone woke up a little bit earlier than usual. Mom and sister prepared to lead all children to school in order to strengthen their academic motivation.
We, One Body Village and all sexually abused / sold-for-sex-slavery children, would like to extend our appreciation to all volunteers who helped successfully organized the “I am not for sale” event on the eve of August 25, 2013 in Toronto with more than 250 attendees. Although we are in the down time of the current economy, you are so generous to contribute the amount of $7,331-CAN and $560-USD so that we can continue to prevent, rescue and educate our children to reintegrate them into mainstream society as productive citizens.
