"Let us contribute"

The result after many months of hard works

The OBV (One Body Village) family was very happy that the couples Viet Thu Dinh, aboard Australian, visit and stay and help the children in some ways for one week.

Before the couples came, the garden cooling shade project had been planned, implemented secretly and funded by "Black Funds" with our own labors. But the couples had contributed an enough amount of money, and also lend a helping hand into this project.

The children write the wishes and give the picture of Mom and the children attached during the past years ..

The past February 24th was Mom's birthday.  Although Mom was not my Birth Mother, you had been nurturing and teaching us dailyPeople have said: "The fruit of Birth is not compared to the fruit of Nurture".  We were so happy when both Mom and Dad had nurtured and loved us.

We remembered Mom's birthday and were counting the days, and the Aunts also planned to cook the delicious meal for the party with the OBV familyMother knew our plan so she would like to have no celebration, no food, no cake, just our existence with her is her happy momentShe warned that if one does not obey her words, then she would check a Mark ‘X’ (*).

Martial Arts Lesson

 

Master Jesse is training the children at OBV house in Cambodia

As often as one week in every month, Master Jesse and Dr. Thuy regularly took the bus ride to Cambodia to teach Martial Arts to the children at the OBV home. Try his best using the ability to speak Vietnamese to help the children understand, he said: During my visit, I wanted to review your skills thoroughly to help you better understanding the skills and practicing competently.

At 8 pm sharp each night, the training began.

Mr. Binh Nguyen - director of OBV Vietnam - meets with her family

The OBV family is happy to receive its newest member who has just returned to Vietnam from Cambodia

This young girl was living with her mother due to the circumstances surrounding her parents' divorce. Her mother had the idea to sell her daughter to Malaysia for unknown yet potentially dangerous purposes, so she told a lie to her mother in order to get permission to visit her biological father in Cambodia. During her visit with her father, she explained her mother's intentions.

OBV Cambodia helped bring her to the OBV Vietnam house. Since she wasn't able to speak Khmer, she wasn't able to assimilate to life in Cambodia.

It has been a week since uncle Jesse and aunt Thuy visited us. We talked about them every day.  We missed them especially the nights that we practiced martial art together.

The most impression was uncle's sharing in Vietnamese "The main purpose for this trip, I want to teach you martial art, so that you can self-defense. After I leave, I will feel assurance that you can always be safe and be able to protect yourself".
