Feb 14, 2015: Presents for 250 students at Sapa
Feb 15, 2015: Presents for 300 students at Bảo Yên Lào cai
We have successfully delivered presents to all the children in Sa Pa, Lao Cai. It's been a mighty tough journey! Driving through foggy hills without being able to see anything in front, packing gift bags in dim lighting because there was a black out; all in the freezing Sa Pa weather. The indigenous children in this village start working to support their family at an early age. Due to this reason, the Father at Sa Pa Church must continuously plead and encourage these children to attend school for a better education. He travels to each villager's home each year to encourage them to put time aside for school. Because this school is located in rural mountainous regions, there have been no charity organizations who have visited them in the past. The children were thrilled to receive presents and visitors for the first time just in time to celebrate the New Year.
Thank you to all donors, volunteers, and everyone for making this mission possible.
