We are back from Vietnam on the 31st Dec 2015 and immediately got back to prepping for the new year at work!
Project Ho Chi Minh was a success as we brought fun as well as donations to 2 orphanages. At the same time, the team also experienced life in Vietnam absorbing the different cultures and lifestyles. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and was rejuvenating at the same time! However, this year’s project we hope we can work on a new program where we encourage sustainability by way of contributing equipments or teaching them viable new skillsets. So remember to follow us on FB to get all the news!
Here I’d like to thank all our members for their relentless support and we had 3 mothers of our members who joined us on this trip to lend a hand too! Special thanks to our Vietnamese friends Bosley and Richard for coordinating the orphanages, transportation, translation, shopping, etc. Without them would be seriously tough for us to be there even! Check out the pictures and videos can be seen on our Instagram as well as our Facebook page!
Last but not least, we would like to thank our donors who have been supporting our projects for years. Some even from year 1! On behalf of the whole team at Care Givers Group, thank you guys for being so supportive, there’s no slowing us down now!

Thank you y’all once again and please look out for our fund raising events planned for this year! Take care and have an awesome year ahead!
We will be embarking for Project Vietnam 2015 today and this year we have a total 13 members participating and amongst those are 3 mothers! I hope the journey will not be too tiring for them!
So please keep us in your prayers for our safety and also for the kids in the two orphanages that we will be visiting. We pray that they are healthy and study hard so that they can too help others when they are older.
We will have instant updates on Instagram under @caregiversgroup or our FB page at http://www.fb.com/caregiversgroup. Please follow us there for updates!
Thanks to all our friends who have contributed old clothes and donations, we will be bringing them over with us.
Sorry for the lack of communication as everyone is particularly busy this year, especially for me. So we will try our best to update as much as possible.
As you can see from the title, we have decided to head to Ho Chi Minh this year to visit a couple of orphanages. Despite our busy schedules, we are still finding time to plan for our trip this year. We have friends in Vietnam helping us to coordinate some logistical matters over there and will be heading there on the 24th December instead of our usual 25th.
As we are planning our itinerary, do let us know if you happen to know some orphanages at HCMC that require help and we would like to visit and perhaps fulfill some of their wishlist. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
Will update more and please keep us in mind in your prayers.
Thank you and God bless.
