Last year I met a lady who had come to our spa and invited me for dinner. She came up to the orphanage for a few days and fell in love and came back and helped me with the summer school last year. She really wanted to make a difference for the local children learning English.
Kate returned to Australia with a new passion. She began telling people about the orphanage, collecting donations, finding things we needed both at the orphanage and for the summer school, that we will have again this year for the local children.
With the help of Rotary in Australia, paying for some of the shipping, and Haison, a shipping company in Australia, many of whom the staff are Vietnamese. She has managed to bring over an overwhelming amount of things for both the orphanage and the summer school. Haison were an amazing help to Kate packing, shipping and arranging the customs clearance as well as assisting with the transport to Tu Bong.
We have been unpacking everything the last few days and I am overwhelmed by her generosity as well as the generosity of the people of Australia. We can't begin to thank Kate, Haison, Rotary and the people who have donated goods enough.
Please know that everything is very gratefully received and will be put to good use. We are getting very excited about starting the Summer school again this year. Some of the local children came and helped us unpack a bit and they were very excited to see everything.
