The beautiful region of Southeast Asia is comprised of 11 culturally unique and diverse countries. On the surface, this particular part of Southeast Asia has done well to repair and heal from decades of war. However, one of the consequences of the many lives lost and the environmental and economic impact is extreme poverty, especially for those living in rural, mountainous regions. As a result, many parents feel they must leave their children with relatives as they search for work. In other cases, when they feel they cannot adequately provide for their children, it is not uncommon for them to abandon them at a temple, hospital, or orphanage. Although Southeast Asia has improved in many ways in recent years, the country’s orphan crisis cannot be ignored. It is estimated that there are approximately 2 million highly vulnerable children, with about 500,000 orphaned or abandoned children living in the country. Poverty increases the risk for child labor, and those orphaned and abandoned are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. They are trafficked within the country or across the border into neighboring countries. New Song Children’s Home is continuing to work to change this reality.
New Song Children’s Home is nestled amongst the bustling cities and beautiful beaches of Southeast Asia. The founder, Phan Thanh Cao Sơn, had a vision for orphaned and abandoned children to come to a place where they could learn about the goodness of God so that their future could be secure. The children also learn foreign languages and musical instruments such as piano, guitar, and drums. With loving and open arms, the committed caregivers offer education and Godly support to all children who enter New Song Children’s Home. Focused on helping them transform their lives with the power of the gospel, New Song Children’s Home works hard to give these children opportunities to grow in all aspects
of their lives and equip them with the skills to thrive as they transition into adulthood.
Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.
