Musical Play “The Life I Left Behind”

One Body Village for the first time presented the Musical Play "The Life I Left Behind" on April 25th, 2014 in Orange County, CA and on April 27th, 2014 in San Jose, CA.

The play showcased the real and painful stories of OBV's 3 children whose lives were scarred by child sex slavery. Their harrowing recounts of their stories brought to the forefront the evil nature of child sex slavery, the sufferings it caused to young lives, and the challenges lasting well past the trauma that are now part of their lives as they undergo the rehabilitation and the reintegration into societies.

US – Vietnam – Cambodia: meeting

Cross-border cordial smiles

Although everyone in The Radio Saigon Houston delegation had stayed to work in Cambodia for only four days, we will always remember them all. Thank you for spending time to have fun with us. In addition to this joy, on the last day, some sisters from OBV Vietnam House also visited Cambodia House. Because we had had the opportunity to meet and chat with each other via Skype, via video a few times and one big sister had even come here to take care of us to help Mother Phuong, our "first surprising moment" quickly went away.

A Workshop at Mac Bac Church

Per reference by Father Xua – a priest who is very down to earth and passionate in serving his people, Bridge to Happiness Center got a chance to talk to over 400 young adults from Mac Bac diocese, Tra Vinh province.

The event took place at Mac Bac church – the second largest church of South Vietnam in the late nineteenth century. Father Peter, who welcomed our party, left me an impression that he was very caring. Throughout the way, he kept asking where we were heading and how, whether we were tired, and he let us know he got food ready for everyone... His hospitality truly warmed our hearts.

The girl in innocent smile

I met her, a Khmer girl, her body is slim, tanned skin, but God gave her a tall figure, innocent smile.

She is only 14 years old but she had been bearing so much sufferings. She grew up in her grandmother's affection, her mother died of an incurable disease when she was little, but she was more woeful when she had a cruel father whom created a lot of woes in her life, he got crazy-mad when mentioning about her. When telling about her mother, her face always flushed with tears. Although she just quietly cried, I could feel that she really missed Mom, loved Mom.

At the twelfth annual Vietnamese Interacting As One (VIA-1) hosted by the Vietnamese Student Associations of the Midwest (UVSA-Midwest) from March 12-14, 2104, the first OBV president, John Duy-An Nguyen, Ph.D., presented the work shop "YOU – ME & OBV MISSION": The mission of One Body Village is to combat child sex trafficking, especially in Southeast Asian countries.
