Love Of Vietnam Expressed

NEWSLETTER

November 2022

We thank you, our dearest friends for always caring and praying for us during Noru storm! Thank God that we all are safe!

CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISING

Our dearest friends, L.O.V.E. desire to give 100 food baskets of $25 including a blanket, a bag of rice, instant noodles and other necessary food to poor household in Da Nang on the upcoming Christmas 2022.

We hope that these baskets will help some of the needy people who have experienced many severe storms and floods in recent months in Da Nang city, where our office is located.

We wish to hand out the food gifts that have been raised in turn to needy families in areas in Da Nang city, starting from December, the season of love. It is estimated that there will be 12 areas in the city where people need these gifts during the winter.

The total fundraising cost for this program is $2500 with $25/a food gift. We hope to receive your contribution so that these gifts can reach the person in need at the right time.

Below are the pictures of the tropical depression that used to be Storm Son Ca that brought widespread and heavy rains in the past 2 days, October 13-14, causing an unprecedented historic flood in Da Nang.

The streets were shabby, cars and motorbikes dead engines were lying around. The entire city of Da Nang was deeply submerged in water. Many roads, residential areas flooded from 1 to 1.6 meters, the water flowed fast. Thousands of households were deeply flooded and hundreds of people had to call for help from the authorities.

Heartbroken at the great loss of thousands of households in the city, especially poor families whose houses, furniture, and vehicles have been damaged, L.O.V.E calls for helping hands from benefactors around the world to ease the hurt, bring comfort and material help to these families in the upcoming Christmas.  We will visit and give away essential food support to families in need and damaged in the storms and floods this year as soon as we receive your support.

If you will help make these dreams come true, please email us or just put HOPE with your Donation.  Every little bit helps. Your help is urgently needed.

THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR 2022-2023 BEGAN, AND LOVE/G4KIDS ARE HAPPY TO ACCOMPANY THE STUDENTS IN OUR PROGRAM ON THIS NEW LEARNING JOURNEY, TO HAVE A SMOOTH START.

VOCATIONAL FEE SUPPORT

At the beginning of September, We gave an additional support which helped the sponsored students who are studying at vocational schools in Da Nang city pay their initial tuition fees as we know it’d be a big burden and worry for these families at the beginning of a new school-year.

With an increase in tuition fees in the new school year, these supports are very practical and meaningful for poor students, helping their families to be somewhat less worried about study fees. The students can focus and complete their vocational training well to find a good job in the future.

Thanks to your generous help, our dear benefactors, many students do not have to drop out of school because of difficult circumstances, but continue to go to school and pursue their dreams.

BICYCLE GIVING

Besides books and school supplies, means of transport to school are also very necessary for disadvantaged students at the beginning of the new school year.

That’s why on September 16, with the help of our dear sister G4kids and dear sponsors, we gave 12 bicycles to students in the sponsorship program in different areas in Danang.

Children in the central part of Danang came to the pointed bicycle shop to pick up their bicycles. Yet those living far from the center received bicycles at the ward near their place.

Children received bicycles in Hoa Bac ward.

Children in central areas came to the shop.

The faces of the children were all happy. These are meaningful gifts for poor students, which encourages them to have more motivation to struggle to develop in their studies, and helps them have the means to go to school.

Thank you, our dear sister G4kids and dear sponsors, for these great gifts!

SPONSORS’ VISIT

L.O.V.E. happily welcomed our 2 nice sponsors – Mr. Darius from Singapore and Mrs. Suong from Germany to visit Danang and their sponsored children in our program.

Mr. Darius and Hoang Hai’ family:

“I would love to take the family out somewhere when I come to visit them” said Mr. Darius the sponsor

 

“It rained hard the last few days even this morning, it rained before you two came. Our family almost could not sleep last night and kept praying  that (Ong Troi) God  would stop the rain so we could meet the sponsor and then together travel to Ba Na Hills and have a fun and happy day there” said the sponsored family

 

It seems Mr. Darius and his sponsored child – Hoang Hai and  family could not have a trip to Ba Na Hills, yet thankful that they all had a wonderful time, enjoyed fantastic games and had nice food together there.

Mrs. Suong and husband & Thuong and sister Tram:

Mrs. Suong is the first sponsor from G4kids visiting us after the pandemic. She is so caring and kind by bringing gifts from Germany to give her sponsored child – Thuong and celebrating Thuong’s birthday.

 

  

  

Mr Suong, her husband and Thuong had a short chat at L.O.V.E.  office

Let’s go to Asia Park!

With Thuong’s sister Tram and L.O.V.E. staff

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 us.

 

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.

ABOUT ME: 

I.  MY FAMILY:

There are 6 people in my family including my father, mother, older brother, young brother, young sister, and me. My father works as hired labor and his job is not stable. My mother is a housewife. She has sinusitis, otitis media, and cervical spondylosis. My younger siblings are too young and often endure sickness, one of them suffers from necrosis of the femoral head, and difficulties in movement, so my mother has to stay at home to take care of them. Because of the family's economic difficulties along with religious beliefs, my family follows a vegetarian diet. But with the meager salary of the father, is not enough for the living expenses and school fees of the 3 brothers. My parents have to borrow money with monthly interest to cover the family living expenses and medical bills.  

 

II. MY STUDY:

I am in grade 8. My favorite subjects are English and Math. I love going to school because I can learn new things and make new friends. I will try my best to study if I receive the opportunity. I look forward to receiving help to ease the heavy burden on my parents’ shoulders and my study road is guaranteed.

L.O.V.E.'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."
