Today our Children and dedicated team in Vietnam celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival. Of course lots of fun was had by all. As Christina always says - Every Child Has The Right To Enjoy A Happy and Safe Childhood.
A big thank you to our team that worked so hard to give the Children from our Sunshine Centre, Sunshine School and Safe Houses, a great party. A very BIG thankyou and well done to all the Children who worked so hard on their performances. We are so very proud of you all.
It is also known as the Children's Festival because of the emphasis on the celebration of children. In olden times the Vietnamese believed that children, being innocent and pure, had the closest connection to the sacred and natural world. Being close to children was seen as a way to connect with animist spirits and deities.
