In the warm atmosphere of the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival, as an annual routine, VLS once again held a charity field trip to give a helping hand to all the underprivileged children in Bồ Đề Phương Duy orphan school, Long An. With the generous donation, 155 gift packs of snacks, candy and lots of school stationeries and food, as well as beautiful lanterns made by VLS students and supporters had been carefully packed and given to all the children.
The bus to Long An was full of laughter and lovely songs which were performed by all the members on board. This was also a chance for everybody to get to know more about the famous Phúc Lộc Thọ old village where is the home for a collection of ancient wooden houses of Vietnam and hundreds of unique antiques.
Although Mid-Autumn Festival is a famous festival for children in Vietnam, not all foreigners know about this special event. Therefore, this charity field trip, besides the main purpose is to organize a warm Mid-Autumn Festival for children in Bồ Đề Phương Duy orphan school, VLS would like to help our foreign learners and participants to live in Vietnamese via culture exchange and understanding more about this tradition especially when taking part in the play “Chú Cuội”.
This play was the soul of the event when VLS’ students and staff playacted together and bring lots of interest, fun and surprise for the children and people there.
It wouldn’t be perfectly successful without the amazing help and generous donation from many kind people. VLS would like to say heartfelt thanks to all of donators and participants for taking your time to help us celebrate a warm and happy Mid-Autumn Festival for children.
Thank you all again and we do hope that we will receive your kind support for our next field trips!
