Helping children is our life commitment
Rosa Thay Nguyen Children’s Foundation (RTNCF) was established after Rosa’s life was cut short. She envisioned a world, where underprivileged children would have access to basic medical care and nutrition. Rosa spent many years helping children in an informal way. In March 2017, her children established a non-profit charitable foundation in her name to formally continue her vision and work.
The Woman Behind the Vision – Rosa was born in Nam Dinh, Vietnam, in 1952. She was put to work and married at a very young age and subsequently had four children. While raising her children in rural Vietnam during the Vietnam War, she witnessed many children suffered from the war because the lack of medical care or medicines. Some even died of preventable diseases. Consequently, many mothers lost their children. She felt the deepest compassion for these mothers but was helpless at the time.
A Journey Home – After decades of being in the U.S., she returned and visited her home country. Although time has changed, she continued to see many areas that needed assistance. She felt compel to start something in order to provide assistance to the children in need, especially the orphanages. However, Rosa did not get very far with her ambition. She passed away unexpectedly before her plans came to fruition.
Inspirational Vision – Rosa’s vision inspired her families and colleagues to establish RTNCF because her message is clear and relevant. That is, children should have a chance for a healthy life and hope for a better future.
“Children did not choose their situation. They are put into one. They need our help to give them a chance to live a healthy and productive life.” Rosa Thay
