Presbyterian Ladies College (Sydney - Australia)

PLC and their student families are one of our greatest supporters and each year they come for a five day visit and then return to Australia for their annual Ba Vi fundraiser. We could not do everything we do without their support. A bitter sweet moment, always so happy to see them, so sad to see them go.

Creative Therapy Room

They say that creative therapy enhances your emotional wellbeing, I guess if the smile on Thuong's face is anything to go by then that is certainly true. Since starting our creative therapy program 3 years ago and building our new room 1 year ago the kids just cant get enough, and we cannot get enough of them to the room. It is a place that gives them joy and in return much joy to us and the volunteers that help out.

Hospital Visit

This morning, Helping Hands arranged to take 3 children and 1 adult to the local hospital. They went for x-rays and general health checkups. Dung, Lan, Mai & Lan are healthy and healing! Thank you to everyone who supports us and makes trips like these possible!

New Support Chairs

With the help of our much loved volunteer Nicola, Helping Hands was able to purchase three new rehabilitation support chairs. These chairs are slightly different from our other rehab chairs as they are able to recline. They are very suitable for a few of our children who could not sit in the other ones! As you can see, we have some very happy boys trying out the new chairs!!

Over the years we have slowly built up our team at the center, we now employ 15 people to help the kids, 2 foreigners, 6 locals, and also 7 residents of the center, all devoted and caring people
