More Letters, More Love!

Recently I celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my husband Mike.  In lieu of gifts, we asked our guests to donate to three charity organizations.  One Body Village was one of the three charities.

I can help in various ways

Hi Father Thong and other associates,

My name is Le-Anh Nguyen from Houston, TX. I would like to get involved in Father Thong's projects besides donations. It's heartbreaking knowing that there is a lot of little girls suffering the sex abuse/slavery. I can help in various ways: teaching basic English, basic Computer, basic drawing on Ao Dai or T-Shirts in a VN traditional way. However, it might be an issue because I cannot leave the U.S. even in the summer time.

Last week, Father Martino--a.k.a. "Cha Thong" as he is called in Vietnamese--invited us to join him on an impromptu investigation mission. We travelled for six hours to another province to meet with someone who contacted him via social media with a tip about young girls being trafficked to China.

Our role was to shadow him and learn what he does. We were to provide assistance when needed.

Father Martino met the informant, a 12-year old girl, who explained that she was accosted by three young males a few months ago. One of them said that "if she behaved [for them], then she wouldn't be sent to China like the other girls."
