Tuong Lai Foundation

Hi
I am a 53 year old Australian who has been living in Vietnam for two years. Through my business in Vietnam we do charity each month with a particular focus on feeding orphans.

Tinh Xa Ngoc Van is a Vietnamese Budhist temple that has built an amazing orphanage for 200 children at Tu Bong. It has recently opened but needs funding to take care of the children. There is a vision of education (particularly English) for the future and for the local children but at the moment they desperately need formula, nappies and mainly carers for the babies.

I have decided to come and live in the orphanage to help with the babies and to start teaching English to the monks and local children. Now they really need assistance, they are not getting a lot of funding and are struggling.

They have nine babies at the moment. They just received two more last week. They range in age from 14 days old to 17 months old. They also have two four year old children and a 10 year old boy.

Tai, Trung and Duc are the youngest babies. Tài, Trung và Đức là những em bé nhỏ nhất ở đây.


Duc has just turned one month old and Tai is two weeks old.
Đức vừa tròn một tháng tuổi và Tài được hai tuần tuổi.


Nghia and Trung are four month old twins who were one day old when left at the temple.
Nghĩa và Trung cặp sinh đôi được đưa vào chùa khi chỉ mới một ngày tuổi nay đã được bốn tháng.


Hien is five months old.
Hiền năm tháng tuổi.


Hau is seven months old.



Hieu is the only girl and is eight months old. She has just had the first operation in the series to close her cleft palate.
Hiếu tám tháng tuổi và là bé gái duy nhất vừa được phẩu thuật hàm ếch.


Phuc is seventeen months old and has mental and physical disabilities. He is unable to crawl and lift his head.
Phúc được tám tháng tuổi bị khuyết tật bẩm sinh, Phúc không thể tự bò và ngẩng đầu lên được.

We need to raise funds so they can take care of the children. The carers that they have are a wonderful group of ladies who smile and laugh and love the babies. They have a genuine love for their job.

 
What your money will buy:

3 000 000 VND ($185 Aus) wages for one carer a month

1 188 000 VND ($74 Aus) formula for baby aged under one month for a month

737 500 VND ($46 Aus) formula for a baby aged 6 - 12 months for a month

470 000 VND ($29 Aus) formula for a baby aged 12 plus months for a month

 There is a cost involved in having a go fund me page with a little under 10% of your donation going to go fund me.

We really need your help.

I will be updating pictures and stories as I go.

Thank you all in advance for your help.

Xin chào!
Tôi năm nay 53 tuổi, tôi đến từ Úc và đã sống ở Việt Nam được 2 năm. Xuyên suốt quá trình kinh doanh ở Việt Nam mỗi tháng hai vợ chồng tôi đều làm từ thiện thông qua việc hỗ trợ cho trẻ mồ côi. 
Tịnh xá Ngọc Vạn, ngôi chùa Việt Nam đã xây dựng trại trẻ mồ côi có sức chứa 200 trẻ tại thị trấnTu Bông. Hiện tại chùa đã hoạt động nhưng cần sự hỗ trợ để có thể chăm sóc tốt hơn cho những đứa trẻ. Tôi quyết định đến và sống tại đây để giúp đỡ trẻ sơ sinh, dạy tiếng anh cho sư thầy và trẻ em tại địa phương. Và bây giờ chùa rất cần sự giúp đỡ, các trẻ mồ côi, khuyết tật ở chùa
vẫn chưa nhận được sự hỗ trợ nên thực sự rất khó khăn. 

Chúng tôi cần nhiều hơn những tấm lòng hảo tâm để chúng tôi có thể chăm sóc các em bé tốt hơn.

Những người chăm sóc là một nhóm những người
phụ nữ tuyệt vời cô luôn mỉm cười và yêu thương với
các em. Các cô có tình yêu chân thành với công việc này.

Số tiền từ lòng hảo tâm của quý ông (bà), anh (chị), em sẽ được dùng cho:
3 000 000 VND ($185 Aus) tiền lương mỗi tháng cho người chăm sóc.

1 188 000 VND ($74 Aus) vật phẩm cần thiết cho những đứa bé dưới một tháng tuổi mỗi tháng.

737 500 VND ($46 Aus) vật phẩm cần thiết cho trẻ từ 6-12 tháng tuổi mỗi tháng. 

470 000 VND ($ 29 Aus) vật phẩm cần thiết cho trẻ trên 12 tháng tuổi mỗi tháng. 

Số tiền mà tôi nhận được từ quý ông (bà), anh (chị), em
thông qua trang web này sẽ phải trừ đi 10% phí quản trị website, nơi tôi đang cập nhật tin tức từng ngày.


Chúng tôi thật sự rất cần sự giúp đỡ của bạn.

Tôi sẽ cập nhật sớm những câu chuyện và hình ảnh khi tôi ở đây.

Cám ơn sự giúp đỡ của tất cả mọi người.

Juanita went up to the orphanage to check on everyone for me. While she was there we did a video call to each other so I could talk to the children. It was lots of fun with them all trying to talk at once.
Juanita got up there early and was able to spend quite some time with them playing with trucks and blocks and doing puzzles, that Juanita sent me photos of. Everyone seems fine with all illnesses much better. The Moo Goo seems to be working really well on rashes, so Thinh and Hien are much more comfortable and Tho, Phuoc, Lop and Bao An’s sores are much better.
Thank you very much Juanita for visiting them while I am away and spending time with them.

We get lots of people ask us ‘how can we help?’.

Expenses for June 2019
June was a very busy month for us. All the children were on school holidays early because unfortunately they got sick and the school didn’t want them there because they didn’t want to spread the illness, but they are mostly better now.
Mark and Cathy arrived and stayed for a month spending lots of time at the orphanage, their two boys Daniel and Cameron visited twice for 4 days and 3 days and on the second visit they were joined by Amanda (their daughter). While they were at the orphanage we did lots of arts and crafts, pool time, cooking, walking and even made a special trip to the beach with the older children. Lots of repairs were done on bikes and various toys.
Rotary Club of Warner's Bay donated money that we bought a fridge with and placed 6 fans and lights in the extension (making an enormous difference when it is so hot at the moment) and we also got a washing line erected out the back of the orphanage.
Expenses for the month are:
Formula and milk: 4,800,000 VND
Garbage Bill: 1,200,000 VND
Wages: 12,000,000 VND
Fridge: 5,200,000 VND
Fans, Labor, Parts: 9,000,000 VND

I went to the orphanage for a few days to spend time before I am away for a while. Phuoc, Bao An and Tho went the Nha Trang to the children’s hospital for sores that won’t heal and seemed a lot better by the time I had left. Poor Tinh had a rash down her back and on her bottom that I put Moo Goo on (a cream from Australia) that nearly cleared it up by the time I had left.
I made sure we had lots of pool time, did painting and played with play dough and just spent time together. It was wonderful. They all chatter away to me, some Vietnamese some English and it’s amazing how easily we can communicate.
I’m going to miss them while I’m away but I know they will be well looked after and can’t wait for the hugs and kisses that I’ll get when I return.

We get lots of people ask us ‘how can we help?’.

Mark and Cathy have had their final time up at the orphanage this holiday before they head back to Australia.
They did lots of craft time with the children, painting, texta (colouring in) suitcase walks and they also got some photos printed of each child and made up small albums so the children had photos of each other.
They spent lots of time in the pools, it is so very hot up there and they said the evenings in the extension were great with the new fans, thank you very much to Rotary of Warner’s Bay.
I am sure the children were very sad to see them go but we hope they will come back soon for another holiday.
Thank you so very much for spending time with the children and bringing your children over as well. You are all very special people and we all love and appreciate you
