Overcoming Difficulties

A visit had been set up by Father Thong.  Perhaps he would like his children to imitate the overcoming difficulty samples from a group named "Cảm ơn cuộc đời" ("Thank life").  This is a group of many difficult lives - mostly orphaned -  that have been brought together and helped by Mr. Ai Tran.

Our Appreciation

The washing machine from Mr. Trieu Nguyen and Mrs. Ly Nguyen

OBV children have never thought of a washing machine because they had lived in poverty since they were young, so they would not dare to dream one.  When joining OBV family, and learning to take care of themselves, every of the OBV child as well as the house management had to wash their clothes by hand.

Surprised visitors

No schedules, no appointments, nothing special... After dinner and general intercessions, the children were studing in their rooms. A van had suddently stopped at obv house door. Every guest steped out was a surprise for obv family.

Doctor Nguyet - long time no see. The obv children thronged to her so that she could not move nor have a tour to the house.

Our New Guests

Through learning about OBV, the Cambodian volunteer group Youth's Team Heart had visited the OBV house in Cambodia.

The visiting was only an hour because the OBV children had to study, but they lingered on saying goodbye.  Two young volunteers were very interested in talking to the kids.  The kids loved to color on the books - their gifts of crayons, coloring books and candies...  The volunteers promise to "contribute a voice" for the OBV children  - to spread out the information of OBV organization.  At the same time, they will ask for more volunteers to teach Khmer for the OBV children - one of the most essential needs for the children.

A Visit of Our Grandfather

Mid-autumn Festival 2013

      

 

 

To know more about Trung Thu / Mid-autumn Festival, please read here

 

Conjunctivitis was spreading among all of us at OBV house.  Because we had focused to treat our eyes, we decided not to celebrate Mid-autumn Festival this year.  In addition, it rained all day deterring any attempt to celebrate the festival outdoor.
