Be A Voice

On the first full day of our three-day mission trip to One Body Village Cambodia, Linh Doan, Director of OBV Cambodia, brought us along on a house visit where we would be picking up the newest member of the OBV Cambodia house.

Huong (name changed to protect privacy), 14, faces a tough decision: Should she stay with OBV in the Cambodia house, or should she move back to Vietnam and join the OBV Vietnam house. Staying with OBV Cambodia allows her to be close to her father, but she would have to start back in first grade since she doesn't know Khmer. Going back to Vietnam allows her to continue her education where she left off and provides her with more career opportunities when she's older, but she'll be very far away from the comfort of her father.

Volunteer to everything I could do

My friend told me about the goals of one body village . I have to say that I've never been so moved .  I know that Im just a student but I hope I could do something to help..

Note: We are pleased to introduce Mr. Paris Nguyen's article sharing about Father Thong Ba Nguyen, Founder of OBV (One Body Village). On November 16, 2013, our Samaritan brothers and sisters in the Vietnamese Youth Association in Paris, France invited Fr. Martino Thong Ba Nguyen to Europe to talk about Child Sex Trafficking. Thank you Mr. Paris Nguyen.

"East Asian Civilization God takes back,
This time Moral is overturned?" (Tan Da)


The George Mason University's Vietnamese Student Association (GMU VSA) hosted the annual semi formal banquet fundraising for their Philanthropy Project in the evening of November 22, 2013. This year, they chose One Body Village, Inc. (OBV). I had the pleasure to attend GMU VSA's semi formal for the second consecutive year and am proud to say that this year's semi formal was a great success with a fully booked venue at over 450 attendees. Semi formal is one of GMU VSA's biggest fundraisers for their Philanthropy Project since attendees all across the Mid-Atlantic Union of Vietnamese Student Associations (MAUVSA) come and join forces to help promote their organization of choice.

Below is one of the journal from their blog.

CHARITY GALA for One Body Village


My name is Tiffany Tran and I go to the University of Colorado in Denver. I am the event coordinator in our campus's Vietnamese Student Association.I am messaging you because our organization is currently planning a charity gala for One Body Village.

Dear fellow parishioners,

Fr. Martino and I recently returned from a trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand, so I thought I might report to you on this experience.

First, I have to say how blessed I am to have had this experience. Over the last 25 years, I have been to many countries in Central America and have witnessed extreme poverty and deplorable living conditions. But nothing prepared me for what I encountered with child sex slavery.

NCCAC's participation in NCC's Academic Festival 2013 was a great success. We were able to send our message to more than 100 people and collected donations.
