Description

Ky Quang Orphanage is run by Ky Quang Pagoda, which was built in the early part of the 20th Century in 1924. The pagoda is now a place of charity for unlucky children and also helps treat diseases. Now, the pagoda is taking care and bringing up more than 200 children in the South of Vietnam. Their ages ranges from 5 days old to 40 years old. 90 percent of these are orphans that are suffering from cerebral-palsy, blindness or Down's syndrome, Agent Orange. The children here have unfortunate backgrounds as many have been abandoned by their parents and relatives. Every few months, the monks find a new baby left in front of the pagoda gate. The head monk sometimes receives phone calls from hospitals requesting him to take in abandoned babies. At present, about 30-40 local children have a chance to study at Ky Quang as some local teachers teach Vietnamese for them in the morning.
