Last March, JinJoo Home organized the first charity trip for residents and staff to Tam An orphanage, Ho Chi Minh City.
Located in a small alley on Le Duc Tho Street, Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City; Tam An Orphanage is a place to adopt and take care of abandoned and disabled children without a caregiver. This is an address of love, a destination of benefactors in the community and also in need of the community’s attention and help. According to the director’s share, here is raising more than 30 children with many different circumstances, the youngest is just 5 months old, and the oldest child this year is in 11th grade.
When coming here, JinJoo Home listened to the aunts and nuns telling about Tam An Orphanage and the poor situation of the children here. There were children who had been abandoned at birth, there are disabled children who are not cared for by their parents or any relatives, there are children with agent orange and cerebral palsy. However, they still look innocent, happy, love life; still study, live and work in the house of Tam An – their loving home. At this point, JinJoo Home is more and more impressed by the will to live, the continuous effort to overcome their circumstances, and the sisters in Tam An who are still dedicated to taking care of the children and loving them every day like their mothers.
When JinJoo Home asked Trang – an 11th grader, the eldest sister at Tam An Orphanage what kind of house she would like to live in in the future, she answered: ” I want to live in a house with Sister and other children, my brother and younger sister.” If this question was asked to Trang’s peers, many of the answers would be like “I want an artificial intelligence Smarthome” or “Villa with a large garden and a large swimming pool”. But for Trang, just having a family is enough. That’s it, the children, although they lacked the love of their parents from a young age, were fortunate to grow up in a house built by love, so they did not have any noble desires. Just stay together and love each other.
