With intense emotion, the OBV VN staff and supporters attended a fundraising event, "The Journey of Thien Nhan," held at the Army Theater on the evening of June 23, 2012.

The horrific tragedy Thien Nhan suffered shortly after his birth generated approximately 3,300,000 results on a simple search on Google. Five years ago, Thien Nhan was abandoned in the jungle by his mother before being found after 72 hours. The newborn was mauled by wild animals, he lost one leg, and his genitals were badly savaged. Just when everything seemed hopeless for Nhan, fate smiled upon him: he was adopted by the journalist Mai Anh. In an effort to make the boy whole again, Anh had taken Nhan to numerous medical facilities. They finally found Dr. Roberto De Castro, one of the world's renowned doctors in the field of reconstructive surgeries, who agreed to reconstruct Nhan's sex organ.

On April 24, 2011, One Body Village was invited to meet with the Vinh Long Diocese Youth on the Easter celebration.

We started our westward journey at 5:30 AM. We arrived at 10 AM, just on time for the exciting contests between the different parishes on the subjects of Catholic Catechism and Liturgy. The Vinh Long youth showed its savvy and complete knowledge of the Catholic Church.

In this trip, OBV had the participation of psychologists and medical doctors. The Vinh Long Diocese youth had the chance to consult with these professional about their psychological and their medical problems.

Over the weekend of 20-22 May, 2016, the One Body Village family, under the coordination of Father Martino, put on a series of successful concerts titled Parental Love in San Jose, San Diego, and Orange County in Californnia, USA.
 
Parental Love is the third benefit concert held by One Body Village and Thuy Nga productions, with the circulation of the recorded DVDs travelling far and wide to spread the word and purpose of One Body Village's goals and objectives. We can say "Parental Love" is a reflection of all our children at One Body Village. A reminder of all the horrendous incidents occuring to them so early in life, the despair and desperation....before being welcomed into One Body Village, and given a shoulder to lean on, and to be parented with the old Vietnamese saying 'a father's love, a mother's care'  within our One Body Village family.
 
The entire program, with both the musicals and skits, was presented in a way that was like a story of a family surviving through hardships, smiles, tears...and leaving every audience member reflecting on their role in their family
 
- Father: a shoulder to lean on, with endless love to give through his lifetime
 
- Mother: forever, always giving and never asking for anything in return
 
- Child: the heart of his/her parents..

An amazing transformation.

We thought Baby C would need to start all over again, in terms of learning the rules of the house, 'please' and 'thank you', and all her ABC's and 123's. We were expecting a big task ahead.

But perhaps this time round, Baby C is no longer the baby of the house. This time, with her own little sister L (5yrs), and another survivor at only 3 years old...she has immediately jumped into the role of big sister.

It has been heartwarming to see Baby C -- oops! I mean, Little Miss C!-- take on a role of responsibility. From helping L bathe, to checking her hair for head lice...and even voluntarily picking up a cloth to wipe down all the outdoor benches and tables because "all the other sisters are cleaning and I haven't been given a job"...it is truly amazing to see a girl once completely helpless slowly blossom into a strong character.

And the best part? Previously terrified of learning, whenever we tried to get her to remember her ABCs, she would cry and throw tantrums....but yesterday, she came up and asked "when will you teach me to read again?"

Her future is bright.

Together We Learn

An old article...

Leaving Ho Chi Minh City for students and their parents at Vinh Loi, Vinh Hung, Long An Province, psychologists and educators of Bridge to Happiness Center departured when everyone inthe city had been still asleep. Leaving the city behind, our bus started its journey to the west of Long An Province. We saw some places like Tan An, Thu Thua, Ben Luc,... going pass our bus windows.

After 3-hour trip, we saw a big board written in Vietnamese and Cambodian: The border gate Binh Hiep. We turned left and drove more than 2 hours to get to Vinh Hung town. The topic of the seminar with students this time was: "Learning – Happiness and Burden". There were quizzes in the seminar. Not only the teachers and students but also people in People's Committee of the District participated passionately in the seminar.
