Vietnam Day 2 – Vistor to the Home

Posted on Dec 4, 2012 in Family

Day 2 in Vietnam and we had another great time today.  Tu is planning a Christmas party for the kids at the orphanage this next Sunday so we are busy getting clothes and planning the party.  There are about 50 kids so that is a lot of planning that has to take place.

We were taking pictures in Tu’s house when a familiar face came around.  This man is mentally handicapped but he comes to the house every morning to collect $2 for his food that day.  Tu’s parents have been giving him money for many years.  Sometimes when they aren’t there Tu’s mom gives them instructions to give him the $2 so he can eat that day.  Sometimes the staff working at the house give him less.  He is always sure to come back and tell Tu’s mom that he was short changed the day before.

He is a quite happy guy.  The vietnamese take care of people even if they are homeless or can’t take care of themselves.
