GUEST HOUSE PROJECT

Vision

The vision for a ‘guest house’ was birthed in the early days of our program when we first observed the children and caregivers coming for surgery and medical care. Most of these families live in far-away rural locations, and they usually travel all night by bus to arrive at the hospital waiting room early the following morning. The hospitals are very crowded, and the days are long and tiring. Then, if the child needs to be admitted and a bed is not available, the families often struggle to find acceptable and affordable places to stay near the hospital while they wait. When this is not possible, they are sometimes sent to local pagodas.

The hospitals in Vietnam are very crowded – a minimum of 4 beds and sometimes 8 or more in the larger rooms with overflow in the hallways. One of the parents or caregivers usually shares the bed with the child, while any other family members are left to find alternate places to sleep (hallways, benches, outside locations, etc.) The challenge is even greater when the child is in surgery and ICU since the hospital bed is then given to other patients and no longer available for the family’s use.


Strategy

We first saw a ‘guest house’ simply as a way to lessen the family’s burden in what is already a stressful time (a child’s major surgery) by offering a clean, comfortable, home-like place to stay near the hospital.

As this dream began to take hold, we starting seeing the Guest House as more than a place of rest and respite. We have always sought to bring blessing to our families beyond paying their hospital bills. We envision the Guest House being a fun and educational place for the children, and a place where we can offer activities such as basic medical training, life skills training, and counseling to the parents.
