Area 10 Community trip June 2013July 15, 2013
This is the 4th time Area 10 community team came to Vietnam and took the Kids at Social Sponsor Center 3 (SS3) to the beach. Going to the beach is such a big present for the Kids at SS3. They were very eager to welcome their brothers and sisters from Richmond came in June 13th to June 20th. There were many things to tell, there were many questions to ask, these made both American Volunteers and the Kids excited and happy to see each other again.
Area 10 Community team helped the kids to clean their home and took the kids to Do Son beach for 3 days and 2 nights. There were 45 kids and staffs from SS3 went to the beach this time.
The moments and Love that they shared together made Thao – a special need girl from SS3 walked 4 hours from her uncle’s house (she was visiting her uncle after the beach time) back to SS3 to say goodbye to the team and to her special buddy who was taking care of her all the time at the beach. This was so touching and meaningful story that made all of us keep thinking about what we have been doing and why we need to keep doing these.
Although it was a short time for the team in Vietnam but American Volunteers, the kids and staffs from SS3 had a wonderfull time together. It will be a motivative power for the Kids to work harder at school to get a great result that they can tell their brothers and sisters when they meet again next year.
