Hello chị Janny – On our anniversary, we’d love to share the love to the kids and to you and the group. Even tho this time we can’t join the missionary in person, our hearts are with you. We love what you guys are doing, we love the mission, and we love you! It’s such a blessing in life that we’ve gotten to meet people like you with such a big selfless heart – Ngọc & Việt – Houston, TX 2023.
Dear Janny Phuong-An: Here’s a rose for you, a young mother who always does charity work. From Facebook, I have seen pictures of you and your daughter going to Vietnam helping the underprivileged in poor villages. How touching to see both of you and other volunteers working very hard to support young students who are in need of food and school supplies. Since I was young, I learned that “better to give than to receive”; That is why I am using my little retirement budget to contribute to your organization. My best wishes to all of you; Always have success and good health in order to other people in our country, Vietnam – w/ much love, Nhu-Quynh – Texas 2022
Thanks for all the info. When Dung & Janny first told me of this, I thought it was a great idea. I feel one of the problems facing younger Americans is a lack of perspective regarding just how lucky/wealthy/privileged we are. I related that my Dad was an immigrant from Sweden at age 7. Landing in NYC, he had a rough time with the kids from other national groups but went on to great personal success with only an 8th-grade education. We didn’t often speak about life issues, but I recall clearly the time he said to me “ I only wish I could have given you what I had as a child – to be born poor”. – Paul Winberg from AR – 2020
I served three tours of duty in Vietnam 1966-1969. As a Navy Seabee, I was assigned to do construction projects such as building roads, bridges, housing, airports, and other projects that were needed. I lived and worked in areas surrounding Da Nang, Hue and Phu Bai. I became acquainted with several Vietnamese families. I grew to love and respect the Vietnamese people.
During a search for an old friend that I had met during the Vietnam war, I met a member of the Perspective Charity. We talked about the educational needs of children in Vietnam. This touched me. I have two Vietnamese American friends that because of family finances and logistics, as children were only able to attend school, one through 3rd grade and one through 5th grade. These friends still grieve for the lost opportunities they had. That is a reason I feel so strongly that education is the most important foundation on which a person can build upon, achieve their goals and make their dreams come true. We have donated money for a young woman to attend college and provided funding for several young children to attend classes to learn the English language. We have decided we would like to be a sponsor through Perspective Charity in order to make a difference in a child’s life. We feel this will result in a very strong and successful Vietnam for years to come. Terry Albertson from MO – 2021
It’s my honor to be part of the group to do something for the unfortunate kids. Thanks for letting me know, Janny. Honestly, your heart and actions are what inspire others to work or support you, dear. Keep up the great and meaningful work. – from Huy Nguyen from TX – 2022
As a child, Dung Duong fled a third-world country, lived in refugee camps, was jailed, and found himself homeless before immigrating to the United States, ultimately growing up in poverty. A strong student and gifted engineer, Dung eventually found success as an entrepreneur and investor. In telling his full story, Dung doesn’t dwell on what he lacked in his youth. Instead, he focuses on what he did have: intrinsic motivation, a strong will, and the desire to positively impact the world. Perhaps, like Dung, you also have a desire to make the world a better place
