Thanks to your support, we were able to provide $6,000 in support to several orphanages in Vietnam this fall. Here is the report from Ms. Aileen Nguyen on the disbursement.
Here is a thank you letter from the orphanages:
Dear ATG family,
Another Mid-Autumn festival has come. This year, the playground of Ưu Dam is filled with the sounds of the drumbeats from the Buddhist Family Dragon dance team and the excitement of the children, another children’s festival filled with love between the people of Buddha and the children in a less fortunate situation.
This Mid-Autumn Festival Ưu Đàm, coordinated with the Buddhist organization of Hue-TT, presented entertainment including a traditional dragon dance for the children of Ưu Dam and the underprivileged children in the neighborhood. The playground was filled with more than 400 children who enjoyed the entertainment as well as the treats. For this occasion, the ATG family provided 10M VND to support the celebration as well as 50 warm coats. After going to the market twice to see only thin, old sweaters and nothing suitable, PT has asked Ms. Phan to help order from DaNang the 50 coats and will distribute those on another occasion. We will send pictures to you later.
During this festival, the children of Ưu Dam eagerly performed a traditional dance with all their heart. I am sending a few pictures in sincere appreciation.
Wishing the ATG family peace, health, and happiness–
