Vietnam

A day at the Orphanage

May 2013 │ Vietnam

On May 25, Deutsche volunteers from Deutsche Bank Ho Chi Minh City, together with their family and friends, gathered at Nha Tinh Thuong chua Dieu Giac (Dieu Giac’s Orphanage) at 8:00am, a rather early morning on Saturday. In the mist of construction the Orphanage is like a battle field full of dust, sand, stones, and construction materials. Without a sign of hesitation we made our way straight to kitchen, and spread out to give a hand in no time.

Some were sweeping floors, removing garbage. A group went upstairs, bringing with them colourful comic books which were published through the cooperation of the local community, Room to Read and Deutsche Bank.



Photos speak for themselves how much the children loved the books – ‘food for thought, as they have not yet learned how to read; but not a problem as many volunteer storytellers were there to transform stories into life.



A big thanks to the organising team and to our volunteers who made the event enormously meaningful.
