On Monday, April 20, 2020, the Brothers from La Salle Phu
Tho Community organized a trip to Dong Thap province, a southern province about
150 km from Ho Chi Minh City. Brothers James Nhat and Joseph Ngoc from other
communities also took part in this journey. Ms. Phan was a generous woman who
provided all the boxes of noodles for these special programs and other programs
that the Brothers approached some places during this difficult time.
Tram Chim is a destination for this program. It is a place
where the Brothers have a vocational center and a house starting more than ten
years ago. Brother Joseph Quan is currently in charge of this center and his
activities in this special place. He often comes to this center to live with
the locals to see how Brothers will return to serve in this place in the coming
years. He also connects all Lasallians who have worked with Brothers before.
This time, like other times, they are happy to support this food donation
The Lasallian brothers and partners have visited about one
hundred poor families. They are happy to receive a gift package at their home.
Each gift package includes a bag of rice, a box of noodles, and other supplies.
All were selected by local Lasallian partners who were seriously affected by
the COVID-19 pandemic.
This outreach program is something Brothers do around the
world where they are working with others to make the poor have enough food on a
daily basis. The gifts they share are not many, but the spirit they bring to
others is very respectable to those involved.
