Subject: lend a hand
My name is Cally and Im Vietnamese. I am a mother myself with a 5 years old daughter and its heartbreaking after I read your story. I got a chance to meet Father Martino a few years back in Canada but I wasn't fit in lending a hand due to some medical reasons. However, I am now fine and perfectly fit in lending a hand. I am fluently in both Vietnamese and English. I would like to help with this mission so please let me know if there is anything that I can help with.

I'm a entrepreneur who own and operate multiple businesses. I've spoken to Father Martino and sent my God Mother and Nanny back to visit the camp in Ho Chi Minh City. Tell me what you need and I will do my best to help. I have cousins and other people in Vietnam that are going to be on my payroll. You can call me on my cell at (407) 468-xxxx or if your overseas, Skype me at John... Look forward to hear from you.
I have people on payroll in VN on a full time basis. They can translate for you.

From Hanh Nguyen
I go to a Baptist university in Texas. Next semester is my last semester as an undergraduate student. I went to a couple mission trips with my school to Texas and Mexico border to do literacy mission there and we mainly worked and played with children. Therefore I am more aware of children abuse and illegal immigration. I did cry and feel sad for them, but I think I feel my heart is breaking while watching Father Martino talked about the stories of the children in One Body Village. I guess they are all sad, those issues are heart-broken and I can't compare which one is sadder, but they are different. I've known the issue about child sex slavery in Vietnam and South Eastern countries for long through the media when I was still at home, but the story on newspaper came and went. I couldn't help and I didn't know how to help either.
I think the reason why I am so moved is because no matter what, I am Vietnamese. Hearing the stories in Vietnamese made the pain even worse and unbearable.
I just found out about One Body Village about 3 hours ago through a Vietnamese blog I follow. I would like to help even though I don't know how much I can do but I would like to try (English is my secondary language, even though I came here 6 years ago, in college my major is Engineering so I don't write that often).
