Volunteering as a family
The Brown family of Australia volunteer as a family to work on the Hoi An Toy Library project. Read their story.
Lynsey Tabrett provides a nice overview of this program; Sarah Akram, Amish Raichura, and Haimisha Mistry report on their trip to Vietnam where they provided dental screenings and treatment to the orphans at Ben Tre, Danang, and Ho Chi Minh City.
This experience changed my life! It was hard to give my heart away to these children but it also makes you feel so good when you know you are giving back to this world.
I matured a lot through my time at the orphanage. I learned a lot about life. I saw those around me who had little but smiled a lot.
It was a time of new experiences, relationships, challenges, and personal growth.
I have been empowered to live with a broader perspective on life and to reach out to those who are different than myself, knowing there are similarities that run deeply within each of us.
It has been about a month since I have been in Vietnam and I have thought about and missed the kids almost every day. I have truly fallen in love with about every single kid at the orphanage and will remember them forever.
