Hope Therapy Center

She’s here and we’re excited! Caroline Mrowiec, lead therapist for Orphan Voice’s soon-to-open Hope Therapy Center, arrived in Danang February 17th. She’s anxious to get started.

Caroline comes to us from Illinois by way of Texas. She’s a licensed occupational therapist who will minister to ‘the least of these’ in Dien Ban District for two years. A committed Christian, Caroline loves children and is eager to put her training and skills into practice to change lives.

While she’s purchasing therapy equipment, learning to ride a motorbike in Danang’s crazy traffic, and absorbing the sites and sounds of Danang, construction workers are busy renovating the Hope Therapy Center building.

Hope Therapy Center is not fully funded. Can you help us finish renovations so that we can begin to receive children? Hope’s doors open April 1st. To invest your support, donate HERE.

Special Needs Children Therapy Is Needed

Our burden for countryside special needs children is great, because first, without our intervention, they won’t get better, and second, a little therapy and encouragement make a big difference.

Watch Truc walk on her own (click above). There was a time in her life when she couldn’t walk. It is for children like Truc that Caroline Mroweic came to Vietnam.

And you have a part to play.  To change a life today, donate HERE.

“I Am Loved!”

Orphan Voice staff member, Daisy Tran, recently hosted anti-trafficking seminars for 1900 elementary and junior-high school children. City and District educators prize Orphan Voice’s More Precious Than Gold and Good-Touch, Bad-Touch seminars. Why? Because it is a powerful tool to help them reach their goals. They intend to stop child trafficking in Danang. We are proud to work with them in doing so.

Hear this child’s testimony after hearing Daisy: “I am loved, I am valuable and I am more precious than gold!”

And so she is!  Through these seminars God is helping the young understand how to protect themselves. He is also planting into their hearts that “they are more precious than gold.”  One day, they will hear the name of Jesus – about His love for them – and they will understand fully why they are “more precious than gold.”

Your gifts, which propel our anti-trafficking seminars forward then, are protective of the children and they also act as a pre-evangelism tool – to go before the face of the Lord prepare His way. You’re doing a lot!

So that more children to know that they are “more precious than gold,” donate HERE.

Promise House Testimonies

“Family” was the counseling focus for Promise House children during 2017. Recently, several children wrote their thoughts about family. A child whose rural orphanage closed and who recently came to Promise House wrote:

“Promise House is a place for poor children and orphans. I’m lucky to be here. We’re all different ages and difficult circumstances brought us here, but we all look to a bright future. We tell each other that this is the warmest, happiest family in the world!

Some school mates have made fun of us because we are orphans, but I don’t feel ashamed or hurt because we have mothers. Our mothers are not our birthmothers but they teach us and help us. Sometimes I dream that they are my real mother. I also have 20 brothers and sisters who love, care and help me. I used to think that I was an unlucky girl, but when I came here, that thought disappeared.”

Your ministry to children through Orphan Voice’s various orphan outreaches changes lives! You’re the key! To enable us to reach more of “the least of these,” sow your support HERE.

Children Celebrate Their “Moms” On International Women’s Day

Promise House children expressed love for their “mothers” on International Women’s Day.  Some of the older girls cooked a special meal to celebrate (above) and all wrote a letter their “moms.”

Partial Translation: “We would like to send our mothers a message today.

These are sincere words which we would like to send to you. You play a very important role in our growth. You always remind us of many daily things from washing to learning. You remind us of little things too. You are always there to share happiness and sorrow with us.

We know that you love us like your own children. You always encourage, comfort and love us. Even though we are not your own children we consider you to be our real mothers. We love you!”
