Newsletter - August 2022
From Our Director in Vietnam
Dear friends and partners, I just want to thank all of you for your love, help and your support in prayer and financial contribution to our works here in Vietnam. You are a blessing and encouragement to Vietnamese poor children.
I also want to thank all of you who pray for our Board, our staff and the sponsored children. These months were made smoother by your prayers, not only for the distribution of stipends, uniforms, text books and school supplies but for renewing our Operation Registration certificate for the next year in Vietnam.
Great big thanks to all of you!

Happy children as they receive their Stipends, Text Books and Uniforms
Below are photos of a few of the over 300 happy and grateful students who received their stipends, books and uniforms provided by their sponsors.
Street Children Program of Da Nang (SCP) lent us the sports court of one of the loving homes they manage to make this distribution possible.
Volunteers from our student housing and sponsorship programs have helped us a lot.
Those who are under the family sponsorship program also received books and material for their siblings, too.
Happy smiles from children and their siblings with help from G4kids’ patrons.
Those who could not come on that day received their packages at LOVE's office or at their homes.
We are very thankful and encouraged for the opportunity to be the vessels that bring the blessings to the children. I hope that you all will also be encouraged because through your good deeds, the children have better conditions for studying and their lives are improved, too.
Fly With L.O.V.E.
The students were blindfolded and barefoot as they were walking through activities that simulate life's journeys that they will be about to face. Thereby, L.O.V.E wants to encourage them to always confidently enter a new stage of life, as long as they have a heart that is always burning with love.
Through the program, the students also met Mrs. Birgit via an online call, the head of the G4Kids organization, to hear some words of encouragement from her.
Mr. Alan, president of L.O.V.E., also congratulated them and shared about the purpose and reason why the organization always strives to reach and support disadvantaged children in Vietnam, helping them and their families both physically and spiritually improve.
At the end, small, meaningful gifts from sponsors and from L.O.V.E were given to the students, with a wish for a happy, successful future and lots of love.
Thank you to the sponsors who have been with them over the years. You are like the second fathers and mothers of them, experiencing the joys and sorrows with them, witnessing their growth. What you have done for them is immeasurable.
Everything will pass. . .only love remains forever. And the love from God, from the sponsors, through the L.O.V.E team, will always flow in their hearts, creating momentum for students to always move forward. Let's fly with love!
The first steps of the BRIGHTER LIVES program:
At the end of July, we visited A Luoi, an impoverished mountainous area in Thua Thien Hue province.
During this trip, we gave study gift packets and Hope scholarships to 5 families of ethnic minority children in special need of help. The children are really happy and grateful for the meaningful and timely support as the new school year is about to begin. Thank you so much, our dear donors, for your generous donation!
Yet, there are still many children in A Luoi, as well as in other mountainous areas, waiting for a kind sponsor to help.
Through the HOPE Scholarship Program, you can help transform a child's life for only $200/year.
The scholarship will help these needy children to pay the school fee for the full school year and buy essential school items like books, notebooks, pens in the beginning of new school year.
You can learn more about the HOPE Scholarship and BRIGHTER LIVES programs as well as information about the children in need here.
We need your helping hand!
We have requests for more than 200 learning gifts and have sent gifts from time to time to the children in the mountains in July and continue in August and September if the fund for the project continues to be further supported by your help.
We hope to be able to raise 500 gifts soon so that needy children can have it before the start of the new school year
If you can help make these dreams come true, please email us or just earmark "BRIGHTER LIVES" on your Donation.
Every little bit helps, and your help is surely needed!
Some other special helps and gifts given in recent months
Thuy Thuong before the surgery
Photos of surgery provided by family and doctors
In the month of July, Thuy Thuong and her family, received two very amazing blessings. First, she started to receive her first month of sponsorship.
Secondly, her sponsor also funded for her scoliosis surgery. Many years of prayers for the surgery and the bills has been answered now. Her surgery took place successfully and now she is in her rehabilitation time.
In September, Thuy Thuong will freely start her 4 years at an IT University in Da Nang city.
It is true to say that our sponsorship program surely can transform a life!
Where there is great love, there are always miracles.
. . . and many more children received letters and extra gifts from their sponsor.
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 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.
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.
