Tet Food Parcels

Every Tet CEF gives the poorest of our families Tet Food Parcels which include basic food supplies such as rice, soy sauce and Vietnamese tea plus some Tet treats such as watermelon seeds, crystalized ginger and coconut candy.
As they can't easily feed themselves on a daily basis, enjoying festive food or Tet treats is just not feasible for them. These foods and treats enable them to share Tet with family, friends and neighbors which is very important as this is considered the most important celebration of the year and how one starts the year influences the remainder of the year. These treats make the families feel they are not as desperately poor as they normally feel. We love being able to help them enjoy Tet and it would not be possible without the generous donations of donors and sponsors.
