H4VO would like to thank Rocky as he concluded his volunteer at Thien Binh
October 2012

H4VO would like to express our deepest appreciation to Rocky for spending many months at Thien Binh. Rocky volunteered at Thien Binh from January to September of 2012. During his stay, Rocky had helped build the guest house, played with and taught the orphans English. Rocky also introduced his friends, Annika, Alisha, and Sean to Thien Binh.

Rocky's stay will be long-lasting memory for the orphans! His time at Thien Binh was a gentle reminder that there are strangers out there that care, and that they are not forgotten, even half way around the world.

A shout-out to Rocky, our volunteer-in-residence at Thiên Bình
January 2012

H4VO would like to give a shout-out to Rocky, a young American with a big heart! Rocky is staying at Thiên Bình for 6 months to teach English to the orphans. He lives in similar housing as the children, no air conditions, and has daily meals with the kids. We look forward to conversing in English with the kids on H4VO's next annual trip to Vietnam this summer. Thank you Rocky for being there for the kids!

Rocky's friends, Annika, Alisha, Sean, will be joining Rocky volunteering at Thiên Bình from June to August.
