From start to finish the experience has been amazing, quite an emotional journey at times but I felt so supported by Katie, Justine and in particular for me Helping Hands teacher Hien. I have been made to feel part of the team and the work effort that all of the RLF team put in is very humbling to see. I cannot wait to start planning my return visit, the love and dedication the team feel for the children is catching. I would love to continue my journey in Ba Vi and work again with Hien next year.

It was a short visit but one I will never forget. The Red Lotus staff are lovely and helpful and the children are beautiful. I hope to come back one day for a longer visit.

I have enjoyed every moment of my time volunteering at Ba Vi and working with the amazing team that you have built. We have been welcomed by everyone and made to feel valued in what we were doing. Katie and Justine's support from start to finish was very much appreciated, their dedication and hard work is very apparent as well as their love for the kids. The day we arrived was a Bonding Day and we found it so useful before our first day at the center (the pineapple by the lake was wonderful). I will definitely be back, thank you for the amazing experience and support.

I had a wonderful time at the center spending time with the children. I am glad to know that thanks to Red Lotus and its staff and volunteers the children are well cared for and they all seemed so happy to have us around. I also had a great time meeting and socializing with the other volunteers. My time was spent meaningfully and I am absolutely grateful for this opportunity.
