Friendship, flowers and bubbles of fun...

Rose and I have been back for a couple of weeks now, my how the time flies! And I must say, the passing of time was very obvious when we went to visit the children of Friendship home.
The children are growing so quickly. They seem to be really benefitting from the food ACCV is supplying for them. Every week Toan purchases and delivers 50kgs of rice, lots of protein, oil, fruit & veg etc …
They are all looking very healthy ….. and taller!!
As you all know spending time with the children is a real highlight to our trips, it’s always so lovely to catch up with them and see first hand how they are all doing. Many of the children have now matured into delightful young adults.
Phuc has finished his first cooking course and will soon begin a more advanced level course. Toan is doing a wonderful job as both mentor and social worker with Phuc, he has taken him under his wing and it is really showing. Phuc has a level of confidence and happiness I’ve never seen in him before, it’s wonderful.
Another young man has begun a motorcycle repair course as he looks to the future. A few of the children have come of age and they're now working and living independently. In their place are a number of new little faces at Friendship Home, six in total.
We had great fun getting to know them, there is nothing like a tub of bubbles to help a friendship along, new or old…..

Ms Ha and the children were aware that it was my birthday and they went all out to make sure it was one I wouldn’t forget in a hurry! I was treated to the most delightful afternoon, which included lots of singing, flowers, handmade cards and hugs.

It was a wonderful day....

Kind regards

Alison & Rose
