Love Of Vietnam Expressed

by
 Helping the Poor & Needy

1 John 3:16-18 NKJV: By this, we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

July - a month of activities

     July is a very busy month for LOVE’s team. In addition to meeting with our sponsored children in the locations and giving out the sponsorships and extra gifts, we distributed almost 230 new sets of texbooks, uniform materials and tailor fees to all sponsored children and siblings. The uniform can be an “ao dai” for high school girls or a pair of navy pants and a white shirt for the others in all levels. Besides, we have almost finished the sponsored children’s annual photos and reports and sent to our dear patrons.

Apart from that, LOVE delivered many gifts including toothbrushes, pencils, pens, and soaps donated by Vuong Nhi’s sponsor and her friend to the poor children in our program this month.

Last but not least, we visited new families who have been referred to us by churches, schools, other governmental groups and individuals.

Let’s now scroll down to look at our activities!

 

Textbooks & Uniforms

are two very basic and essential things for a student to enter into a new school-year in Vietnam. Our sponsored children are those who have a very poor and needy family background. In the past, many would have bought old used uniforms or borrowed money to get a new one and the same with textbooks. Many would have gone to school with no textbooks but from their first days of the sponsorship many things have dramatically been changed in their lives. Below shows a few of the 230 happy and grateful students who have received the monthly stipends, books and uniforms given by their sponsors.

One of the benefits for our sponsored children is that both they and their siblings yearly receive books, uniforms and tailor fees before a new school year.

Not only the sponsored child and their siblings joyfully and happily receive their items

but also their parents. Single mothers and single fathers, including their relatives, have been extremely overjoyed with the generosity given by our sponsors because many of their scholastic financial burdens have been lifted.

We will give the Texbooks and Uniforms to those who are moving up to the 10th grade in the month of August after we know their exam results.

 

 HOPE AND PRAY FOR THEM ALL FOR A SUCCESSFUL NEW SCHOOL-YEAR WITH GOOD ACHIEVEMENT!

 

“Kindness to children…Love for children…Goodness to children.

These are the only investments that never fail.

Henry David Thoreau   

 

“The photos are wonderful and lovely to see the smiling faces of the children
said Elaine Harrison and her friends who donated these gifts

  

We were happy to see their happy smiles

Many big thanks to our LORD & all the sponsors and donors for your support to help transform many Vietnamese children’s lives.

 

Sponsor a child give them a chance!

July is our big month to visit. Nearly 30 new children were referred to us and LOVE’s staff made a point to visit every home to evaluate their status and needs. It is true to say that the first three weeks of the month we often witness much joy and happiness from the many faces of our sponsored children and their relatives when they come to receive the monthly stipend and the extra gifts. But then the last week of the month, there is sadness, weariness and burden in our hearts when we are on the field visiting new applications. As you are well aware there are so many poor and needy children and families out there needing our sponsorship.  

Below are pictures of some of the new families visited in July.

The living conditions are still very simple and poor, viruses could be anywhere in the house

A grandma raises a grandson

A mother suffers serve epilepsy raising two chidlren

A single mom raises two boys

We will discuss about these cases and make profiles in August.

Please, together with L.O.V.E, sponsor a child and give them a chance.

Sponsors Needed

Right now, there is a needy child living in poverty who is waiting for a caring person like you. We have many children who need sponsors.

To see these children or to fill out an application go to our web site by clicking child. Without your help, many of these will not finish school. For just $30 a month you can see that the child you choose will break the cycle of poverty by getting a good education, better food, clothing, and shelter. For more information about these children or an application form, you can also contact Reggie.

Please pray that we can find sponsors for all our children and put your prayers to work by sharing the need with your church, Sunday School Class, civic club, etc.

PLEASE HELP!

Share your love and faith

These children urgently need sponsors who will support a child for $30 a month or the whole family for $50 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.

About me: My father works as a builder’s assistant to earn a living. His monthly income is around $172 and he is the breadwinner in home. My mother died a couple years ago because of high blood pressure. My oldest sister has endured kidney cancer for almost 3 years now, and she monthly needs to be taken by my father to the general hospital to receive treatment. Despite we get free insurance for poor household and a little extra help from our relative we have to pay for food, transportation and several prescriptions that the insurance does not cover. Therefore, it is certainly a heavy burden of finance for my father.  I often see my father struggle with the bills from the monthly treatment and the costs for my education and basic needs for the three of us. After this summer break I will move up grade 9, this is also a very crucial year for me as I will take an entrance exam to find a seat at a public high school. My family and I definitely wish to receive a sponsorship from a generous sponsor and the Organization.

Family members:

  • Nguyen Van Thu (1974) – Father

  • Nguyen Thi Bich Thuy (1997) – Sister

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is highly recommended.

       

 

(Luke 14:13-14 NIV)  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

(Prov 31:8-9 NIV)  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
