Bao Loc, Vietnam -- Rehabilitation of a home for orphans

Following the first work camp at the Phu My orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, organized by Warrane College in Sydney, a second service project in Vietnam was held in January 2009. This time it took place among the tea plantations of Bao Loc, in the agricultural province of Lam Dong, some 100 miles from Ho Chi Minh City.

The group of fifteen Australian students taking part in the work camp restored one of the communal houses for orphans. They also helped out in agricultural work in the fields. During their free time they visited older orphans living in the small houses spread throughout the area.
