Its wonderful to welcome volunteers from all over the world, but its always a little special for me to welcome people from my home country to Vietnam. Great to have you here Clare and I hope it will just be the beginning of a long relationship with your new Red Lotus family and the kids we serve. Terry (Red Lotus founder)
A big thank you to Ellen, Katie and Thuy for spending a few days at Huong La Center assessing the children's disabilities. Thanks for giving practical advice during a workshop on new methods for the sisters to use going forward. The practices and equipment will enhance the children's wellbeing and mobility, thanks guys from all <3 <3
Red Lotus is happy to welcome Victoria to her new family in Ba Vi, Victoria comes to us off recommendations from past volunteers, the way that most of our new volunteers do as our network continues to grow.
Is another first time volunteer to our Ba Vi program, Christine will spend her time with us working with the kids in room 1, seen in pic with our little Lan. Welcome to the Red Lotus family Christine and thank you so much for coming to help us out.
Carmen (Spain) appears to be more beautiful every time she returns to us 😍 Carmen has been with Red Lotus for 7 years already, the first time at the Reach program in Hanoi and then a Ba Vi regular, so happy to see you back again sister ♥♥
Anne is a first time volunteer with us and has waited a long time to join us so we are really happy to finally have her here. She is seen in the pic with kids and staff from room 5 where she will spend her time with us.
Red Lotus is always happy to welcome families to our programs and that is what we have with mother and daughter team Catherine and Lauren. They now have the opportunity to share a very special experience together and we are happy to play a part in that journey. They also received a special welcome at a local Buddhist pagoda which is a teaching they and all of our staff embrace.
Its Sara's first time with us but we are sure like many others it won't be here last. She has quickly established some new friends in rooms one and two and is now truly a member of the Red Lotus family.
