Check out the awesome team from WCSDA Church who recently went on an ADRA Connections trip to Vietnam! ☀ ...
Our group of eight volunteers travelled from New Zealand to Vietnam as part of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Connections initiative which provides opportunities for volunteers to assist with humanitarian projects. Our group spent 10 days in Vietnam and worked on the "Lets Shine" project located in Bao Lac (Cao Bang province), a very remote district in Vietnam. Working with the local community and ADRA staff in Vietnam we were able to support and upgrade three important school facilities which included the concrete pathway to the school, school courtyard and toliets/latrine for students and school staff.
Our group also conducted a programme for the children and donated sporting goods for the school. Pastor Jake Ormsby donated stationery (pencil cases, pens, sharpeners) for the children to support their schooling. We hope and pray that the volunteer work will support the educational outcomes of the school children within the Bao Lac district.
