FY12 Dress Distribution #10 - For the children in Kontum Vietnam

Distribution #10 parcel which has 34 dresses will be sent to Kontum Vietnam. There are actually over a hundred children in this community but I have decided to send 34 pieces only this time. I want to know if there is going to be no problem in delivering this parcel to Sr Juliana of the Sisters of Saint Paul of Chartres knowing how strict their country is when it comes to clothing. Sometimes they might think you are competing against their garment industry.

These dresses will be distributed to the children of ethnic minorities who are staying in the orphanage. They are not orphans but children of poor families who I was told live in the mountains. Once I know that the parcel has arrived with no problems, then I will try to collect 76 dresses more to provide to the rest of the children who are aged between 8 to 21 years old. They could be 21 years old but small in size.

Here is the parcel -
