Y Mi Lai
Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 6 years old
Sadly, Y Mi Lai’s mother suffers from cancer and, thus, could not take care of her daughter anymore. Therefore she brought Y Mi Lai not long ago to Teresa’s orphanage in Kon Tum. At first, Y Mi Lai was very sad because she was no longer able to live with her mother, but now she seems to have settled in well with the large LittleBigDreams family.
In her spare time, she loves to draw and dance with the other children. So it is not surprising that she dreams of becoming a painter one day. Unfortunately, there is only very modest painting equipment in the orphanage so far. If you would like to help fulfill Y Mi Lai’s wish for watercolors, you can donate a LittleBigDreams set for only 25 Euros. This set contains only the things that the children dream of, such as painting materials, balls, and books.
The orphanage is also lacking a place where the children can play protected from rain and sun. Therefore we are planning to build an education house. In this building, there will also be a room for our younger children, which will provide many books and games for the smallest children in the orphanage and make their hearts beat faster. Learn more about this worthwhile project here.
Y Mi Lai especially enjoys the many animals on the home grounds. She loves to watch the chickens and pigs being fed. These animals not only delight the children but also provide an essential source of income for Teresa and contribute to the independence of the orphanage. You can make the children’s hearts beat a little faster and do Teresa a big favor by donating a chicken for only 11 Euros or a pig for 52 Euros.
However, the best way to support Y Mi Lai is to take over a personal sponsorship for her. With only 93 cents per day, you can help Y Mi Lai grow up without financial worries and pursue her big and small dreams.
i would like to sponsor Y Mi Lai:
How does sponsorship work?
You can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
We cannot support everyone, but everyone can support someone. Donating 93 cents per day can help Theresa in creating a homey environment and covering expenses for food, medical care, clothes, and tuition fees, preparing the child for a financially independent life after graduating from higher education.
How does it work?
It's quite easy. Once you know which child you would like to support, you will be redirected to the payment options. You can then also choose the amount you would like to contribute every month. The minimum amount is a contribution of 28€ per month. Next, you can fill in the details we need for your tax contribution receipt and the sponsorship letter, which will be sent to you digitally (address and email). If you would like to leave your phone number, we would be thrilled to thank you for your support personally. After filling in your personal information, you are officially a sponsor for one child in Vietnam! In the coming days, you can expect an email with a personal sponsorship letter. This letter will include further details about the child you chose to sponsor. From then on, you will receive every 8 months, texts and audiovisual updates about the child, and you will be notified if anything extraordinary happens.
How can I become part of my sponsored child´s life?
Twice a year, you will receive updates about your sponsored child. Otherwise, our blog and social media accounts are regularly updated with what is going on in the children's life. However, if you want to contact the child you are sponsoring, you can write them a letter in English or Vietnamese. We will take care of forwarding the letter to the orphanage and translating your message if it's in German. Additionally, it is possible to send us emails which we will forward directly to the child. Teresa has a smartphone and makes sure that the child receives your message. The children are always excited to receive messages from their sponsors and especially short videos and pictures. In case you would like to surprise your child with a small gift, please contact us first. There might be something they have been dreaming of for a long time!
What could I write about?
The children find it exciting to learn more about the life of their sponsors. You could, for example, write about your family, friends, pets, what you like to do (job, hobbies, interests). You could also write about where you come from, what your country looks like, and the culture (food, language, etc.). The children are always especially excited to receive videos and photos.
