Bien Thienh Social Caring Centre

Orphanage review by Courtney

We have spent the last four days working at the orphanage in a small town just outside of Ho Chi Minh City. The days were very long and hot while we worked on their soccer field and veggie patch. While 10 of us worked outside, 3 of us would work inside with 13 babies - very hard work! We also took breaks to play traditional South African games with many of the children. We have all really enjoyed helping the orphanage in some way and hope they will remember these past few days for a while! We will definitely miss this lovely place and all the smiles and laughter.
Today we make our way back to Ho Chi Minh City, where we will be spending our last night in Vietnam. It will most probably consist of a lot of souvenir shopping for friends and family as well as a traditional Vietnamese meal! Tomorrow we will be at the airport at about 4 in the evening to depart for home at 19:00! We cannot wait to see you all and tell you all of our incredible experiences.
