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.

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.

Give and Receive

I am a leader of 6 years that have participated in many camps and shelters, but December 29, 2013 was the first time that I participated in a camp called "Sow and harvest" with the position as a member of the board of coordinators. I joined alongside the children of OBV for the first time and felt many indescribable emotions.

Christmas Night

Just finishing Christmas Eve Masses, the atmosphere was filled with peace and happiness. Along with the joy of the whole of humanity, the OBV Cambodia family also full of joy and happniess.  To express it, OBV Cambodia children have joined a performance in the Christmas party.  

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".
