Vietnam Bridge Collapse

I received a letter from our adoption agency informing us about a bridge collapse in Vietnam. The bridge was being built across the Hau River, a branch of the Mekong River, in the southern city of Can Tho. It is part of a heavily used route linking the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City. Around 60 people were killed, and over 180 people were injured. Many families lost their loved ones who were working on the bridge. Some of the children have lost both of their parents in this incident, and many are struggling to get by. The collapse has really affected the people in Vinh Long Province, which is where one of the orphanages is located that our agency is working with. I ask that you be in prayer for the families affected by this tragedy and if you wish to donate please click on this link
