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.

Because of getting too old, plus missing documents, two of the OBV children are ineligible to go to regular public school. OBV management had to look for other school programs.

A Roof of Love


The children of OBV Cambodia

 

The new home of the OBV children in Cambodia is located in the heart of Phnom Penh. With the hope that the children would have a better place to live which is fully equipped, and most importantly, for them to have an education in a very prominent school. Father Thong and the rest of the household did not mind the difficulty of finding a home, processing the birth certificates, and transfering school for the children; with the important contribution from the benefactors.

Hundred Years To Raise Up a Human

Recently, all resident managers had been very busy with new construction and not have enough time to look after all children.  Therefore, daily routines had been disrupted.  If we did not organize things soon enough, there would be more issuses.

In order for the new school year to be faithful, the new living place to be peaceful, daily reminder is not enough.  All resident managers have to spend one day with the children as below:

   - In the morning, Sr T escorted all older children to the nearby market to shop for clothes and books.  Mom N. had a private meeting with younger kids at home.

   - In the afternoon, Sr T went through youngerkids’ clothing while Mom met privately with older kids.

Mr The Khanh – Project Manager at Viet Nam – with the father and daughter at their home in Ha Noi

Last week, OBV was very happy to welcome the new 15 year-old member to our house.  This happened after we visited her family's house in Ha Noi.  For many reasons, OBV Viet Nam decided to transfer her to Sai Gon.  This would separate her from the old environment and help her to forget the past and reintergrate into the new environment.  Although having other heavy obligations with family, her father still accompanied her, overcoming the 3500 km distance to settle her into OBV organization.

Welcome a New Child to OBV

OBV family in Cambodia has warmly welcomed a new member – S.P. She’s 16 years old and she’s now the oldest girl in the family.

The other children are very happy to have a new sister. Because of the circumstance, S.P had to stop her from studying long time ago. Now when the children study together, they help S.P in reading. They keep telling her their activities at school, their Daddy Thong and their lives at OBV. They also instruct S.P how to use things at home. Therefore, in spite of feeling strange to everything, S.P doesn’t feel homesick or cry for a week as the other children used to.

Hope she will soon integrate and have a happy life.
