Pure Vietnam Beauty and Spa Charity for October at Tu Bong
What a fantastic Sunday morning . It was charity for Pure Vietnam Beauty and Spa for October. Unfortunately the boss still has a sore back so it was a girls trip. (Sorry Steve Brown it will get better soon)
We went to Tu Bong. This beautiful little town is a little more than an hour away now that the road is fixed (what a difference).
We have been many times to this wonderful place. The orphanage is capable of housing many children but still has under twenty.
At the moment they have 3 babies which takes up a lot of their resources. One baby is 12 months old and he has physical and mental disabilities. A female baby is one month old and she has a reasonably severe cleft palate and the other male baby who is two months old doesn't have any disabilities.
There were three other children at the orphanage with the rest off doing chores. We took up lots of special baby formula for the babies and nappies, milk for the other children and a carton of condensed milk. Of course there may have been one packet of lollies.
Samantha Cherry and Shane gave us some money to buy some extra milk and unfortunately couldn't come with us. Nguyễn Nhung also came up with some of her friends for a quick visit and bought some oil, milk and soy sauce.
It was wet to start with but the weather was beautiful by mid morning.
The staff and I had a wonderful time feeding the babies playing with the children and looking around. They are growing so many fruits and vegetables. We had some of their home grown bananas which were delicious. The okra looks about ready to harvest. Someone has a very green thumb.
