The Vinh Son orphanages (formally known as Vinh Son houses) are located in remote areas in Central Highland- Kontum province. These centers are administered by the Sisters of the Miraculous Medal and do not receive subsidies from government. The Sisters provide shelter, food, education, and very basic medical care to all children regardless of their religion. Most of the minors have been orphaned by the deaths of both parents, and a few have only one parent and live under extreme difficulties. While their age ranges from newborn to high school, most are in kindergarten or preschool. The Sisters have rescued infants and babies from people who believe only the birth mother can feed her own children. Therefore, if the mother dies, her child is buried with her. Sisters are struggling to provide all of these kids their basic needs. After school, the older orphans help with farming and raising chickens and pigs for food. They are always looking for a better meal each day and enough tuition to pay each semester. VietDreams was touched by the stories about these unfortunate kids and decided to give Sisters a hand by providing them school tuition and daily meals.
