Dear Families, Friends, and Neighbors,
We are Dr. Dan and Haley, proud Vietnamese Americans and the founders of Tutor Smart Academy in McLean, VA, and ProHealth Medical Center in Falls Church, VA. Our mission at Rice & Water Charity is to provide water and rice donations to rural villages in Vietnam, with a special focus on supporting orphanages.
To give you some background, Dr. Dan was born and raised in Fountain Valley, CA, while I was born in a small village nestled in the mountains of Vietnam. My father's upbringing took place in the rural village of Son Ha, Quang Ngai Province, Vietnam, surrounded by picturesque countryside, and my mother grew up in Duc Loi, Quang Ngai Province, Vietnam, a charming seaside town. Hearing their stories of poverty and the aftermath of the Vietnam War enriched my childhood, inspiring me to make a positive impact.
Growing up in the United States, I've always felt a strong drive to use the opportunities and blessings I've received to give back to the impoverished rural communities of my father's mountain village and my mother's serene seaside town.
The Rice & Water Charity is embarking on its first GoFundMe project, aiming to raise $15,000 by November 1st, 2023. Dr. Dan and I will personally fly back to Vietnam in December 2023, coinciding with the holiday season, to deliver rice and water to the rural villagers and orphanages in the mountains of Son Ha and the picturesque seaside of Duc Loi, Quang Ngai province.
The cost of our donations is modest - just $4 per bag of 10 lbs of rice and $2 for one gallon of water. Considering it's roughly the price of a cup of Starbucks, we kindly urge you to support our cause. Any contribution, big or small, will significantly aid in providing nourishment to orphanages and rural areas in Vietnam.
We are committed to this cause and will match 100% of any amount we can raise. To our cherished family, friends, and neighbors, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for your generosity and support in contributing to our mission.
Dr. Dan and Haley
