Love Of Vietnam Expressed

 Helping the Poor & Needy

1 John 3:16-18 NKJV: By this, we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

A letter from Mark Smith, a longtime sponsor of LOVE:

“My name is Mark Smith, I am from Australia.

I have been sponsoring a family through LOVE for 12 years now.

For a number of years now I have travelled to Da Nang during the TET holidays to visit my sponsored family and to also support a humanitarian day with the assistance of Phuong from LOVE and my friend Thuong..

Phuong and Thuong go to a lot of effort to organize these humanitarian days, many things need to be done including selecting a needy area, identifying individuals in need, organizing with local authorities and arranging the purchase and distribution of gifts.

For those that make this happen I know there is much work and I greatly appreciate the efforts of all those involved.

For me it is a fun day going into the countryside to a rural town called Que Loc on the back of a motorbike with Phuong and giving out the gifts.

Que Loc is a very beautiful place in a valley covered by bright green rice fields and surrounded on all sides by mountains. Life there is difficult for most who barely earn enough to eat.

On arrival to the local town hall we waited for the recipients to arrive as we set up the gift packs and organized the paperwork.

Once everyone turned up we proceeded to give out the gifts. For me this was the real fun part because everyone was so happy to receive their small gifts just before TET.

The result of this day was the distribution of 80 gift packs to mainly elderly people which included a small amount of (lucky) money and cooking items.

The staff of LOVE do a wonderful job helping the needy people of Vietnam. I strongly recommend sponsoring a child or family and getting involved as much as possible.”

Thank you, Mark!

Sponsors Needed

Right now, there is a needy child living in poverty who is waiting for a caring person like you. We have many children who need sponsors.

To see these children or to fill out an application go to our web site by clicking child. Without your help, many of these will not finish school. For just $30 a month you can see that the child you choose will break the cycle of poverty by getting a good education, better food, clothing, and shelter. For more information about these children or an application form, you can also contact Reggie.

Please pray that we can find sponsors for all our children and put your prayers to work by sharing the need with your church, Sunday School Class, civic club, etc.


Share your love and faith

These children urgently need sponsors who will support a child for $30 a month or the whole family for $50 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.


Please Sponsor me!

About me: My family always lives in destitution as both of my parents do not earn a stable and enough income monthly in comparison to our daily needs. Our family finance get worst during the rainy season since there is only my mother is the earner and in the months of school-year because 3 of us are at school. I wish to take extra class of English as well as other subjects but it is impossible because my parents can not afford it. As a result, our scores at school are not good. My oldest sister dropped school a few years ago and she stays at home now as she is not old enough to find a work. Our whole family does long for a helping hand at this tough stage.

Family members:

  •  Nguyen Van Tuan (1983) – Father

  • Huynh Thi Thuy (1985) – Mother

  • Nguyen Thi Tuong Vy (2004) – Sister

  • Nguyen Thi Tuong Ni (2006) – Sister

  • Nguyen Van Huy Hoang (2015) – brother

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is highly recommended.


(Luke 14:13-14 NIV)  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

(Prov 31:8-9 NIV)  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
