Y Túóng Ly
Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 11 years old
Dream: Become a doctor
Needs: Backpack, sun-hat
Y Túóng Ly comes from a small village in the mountains, where her family lives in a tiny bamboo hut. Sadly, her mother passed away when she was just about to turn three years old, and her father was very sick and could, therefore, not take care of her. In her free time, Y Túóng Ly loves playing with the jumping rope and drawing. Her greatest dream is to become a doctor when she grows up so that she can help other people. But for the moment, she wishes to have a backpack and a sun-hat for her way to school. If you want to contribute to fulfilling her dream, you can fill in that you want to buy a backpack and sun-hat for Y Túóng Ly in the donation form of our charity. Another way to support her is to become Y Túóng Ly’s personal sponsor. Having a sponsor means for Y Túóng Ly to have financial security until she enters an independent life and a, hopefully, promising future.
*Update: At the moment Y Túóng Ly is very ill. She has an ulceration on her neck and is in immense pain. Teresa was at the hospital with her, and the doctors have been running tests. Unfortunately, she cannot stay at the hospital due to the corona situation. Therefore, she is supposed to stay home and take her medications. If she is not feeling better after one week, Y Túóng Ly has to undergo surgery. We are hoping that it won’t have to come to that.
i would like to sponsor Y Túóng Ly:
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 Teresa 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.
