Family Medical Practice's SIMBA Group on Charity Trip to Te Phan Family Orphanage

HCMC—In November 2016, Family Medical Practice’s Saigon International Mother and Baby Association (SIMBA) announced to mothers at its gatherings that it was seeking a local orphanage to receive the VND15.5m in profit it earned between March and December in that year. Following the enthusiastic support of parents, a private orphanage located in a small alley in District 3 named Te Phan Family was identified and selected. Founded in 1985, Te Phan Family provides shelter for over 70 orphans. Most of the children there are disabled or suffer from mental illness, while others have been abandoned by teenage parents following accidental pregnancies. The leader of TPF is Sister Thu, a nurse who has dedicated her life to taking care of these unfortunate children.
