nearly ten years, a plain concrete building in Dalat,
Vietnam has been home to six sight-impaired boys and
the two Sisters who care for them. The building is
clean and well-maintained, but the boys sleep on mattresses
on the floor and the living quarters are small. The
boys attend school in Dalat City and receive special
assistance from the Sisters and other volunteers.
Several other young people (boys and girls) who live
in the area come to the home daily to receive the
special education provided for these children who
are trying to keep up with their sighted classmates.
The children who board at the Dalat home come from
remote areas in Vietnam. Without this home in the
city, these children would not be able to take advantage
of the educational opportunities in the area nor would
they receive the special assistance and care provide
by the Sisters and other caregivers (images of the
Dalat home are posted on our "Gallery" pages).
The BVCF has provided help to homes for blind children
in Saigon and has successfully funded the construction
of the beautiful new Suoi Mo home in Bao Luc. A new
home in Dalat home is long over-due!
can help us reach this goal by participating in our
"Buy a Brick" campaign. We are seeking 2,000
donations of $100 each to purchase property and build
a new home or modify an existing building. As a memorial
for each $100 gift, the new home will feature a "donor
wall" of plaques in the shape of bricks. Each
"brick-plaque" will include an inscription
in Braille with either the name of the donor(s) or
a memorial inscription to a deceased loved-one or
