8:00am - 1:00pm

Bus Transfers from The Myst Dong Khoi to Que Huong Orphanage

Embark on a journey of connection and compassion in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. We've partnered with Jackfruit Adventures for a morning that promises not just to enrich your retreat experience but also to leave a lasting impact on the local community.

Together, we'll start at the local market and head off to purchase some ingredients to make a meal for the kids of the local Que Huong Orphanage.

 

From there, we will have an immersive tour of the shelter, delegates will then have the opportunity to take on a variety of roles to support and connect with the children, including:

  • Cooking with Heart

  • Painting/Repairing Showdown

  • Language Exchange

 

These activities are more than just acts of service; they're a bridge connecting hearts and cultures.

The highlight of our day will be following this, when we will have the opportunity to spend some time interacting with the children. It's an opportunity to share smiles, laughter, and perhaps even stories, creating a legacy that will linger long after the retreat concludes.
