Rachel’s Bridge – Soc Trang, Vietnam (completed)
RACHEL’S BRIDGE IS FINALLY A REALITY!
Thank you to Aid for Kids for helping our family every step of the way to make this dream come true. Thank you to all who supported this dream and made it a reality. We are so thankful that Rachel’s birth family and their community now have a safe bridge to cross to get to town and the ability to increase commerce in this area that is so poor. See our new youtube video “Rachel’s Bridge A Reality” which documents the dedication ceremony of Rachel’s Bridge and our trip back to visit Rachel’s birth family’s home. View our original “Rachel’s Bridge” video which shares our personal journey reuniting our daughter with her birth family and finding this desperate need to replace a dangerous monkey bridge for her family’s village.
As a result of all the kind and generous donations given, we were not only able to provide this beautiful, safe bridge (the design of this bridge has been chosen by the local government to be used to build more bridges to replace other unsafe monkey bridges in the area!) but we were also able to provide the funds to have a new home built for Rachel’s birth family after their home was destroyed by a typhoon…and, we were able to bless 20 elementary school children, whose families are too poor to send their children to school, with scholarships to pay for their expenses to be in school this year.
