Children’s Picture Book

July 2017 – After one of Nhung’s CVBF visit to a village in central Vietnam two years ago, she was inspired to write a little children’s picture book story about the struggles of the children/youth in the community. The story was well-received by a publisher in Toronto, Second Story Press, and she was granted a contract with them last year. We are now able to catch a glimpse of the beautiful work of award-winning illustrator Josee Bisaillon in bringing Nhung’s words to life. Nhung had donated all the funds from her contract to the Foundation and will do the same with all the proceeds from the book, tentatively called Ten Cents a Pound, when it is published in spring 2018. Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

Thank you!
We are so grateful for your support at our 4th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 24th. Together, we raised over $45,000 for the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation! It brings us great joy to know that we can continue helping more children go to school, grant more scholarships, buy more beds, deliver more playground equipment, supply more books/pencils, bicycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids, possibly help build another school and so much more! It was not a small feat this year as we staged the first ever full capacity banquet dedicated to authentic Vietnamese Cuisine, something that is rarely if ever done anywhere in Canada. It took a powerhouse team of talented chefs, dedicated volunteers, generous businesses, and beautiful guests to make the night an incredible success. We thank you!
