Warming Hearts In The Highlands

With no heat in school buildings, new coats keep the children warm all day!


Vietnam's Central Highlands has some of the nation’s poorest people. In mid-January, you helped make a special delivery to children in two government schools and one minority village. More than 500 coats and more than 600 pairs of shoes arrived just in time for the coldest weather in that region. And were those children ever happy to receive such gifts!

Life here is rugged and hard. Most families have no electricity or indoor plumbing. Children work alongside their parents in rice fields — back-breaking, wet, and tedious labor. The colder weather means that runny noses and coughs are rampant in every home and classroom. Warm coats and sturdy shoes make a difference! Thank you, partners, for taking compassion to the next level with your financial gifts!

If you say to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but do nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?

James 2:16

Most children work in the rice fields with the adults.


  “Wow, these are so nice! Only the children of government officers could have such good quality  coats and shoes.”
