God’s Gift to you is the Gift of Life. What you do with your Life is your Gift to God.” –Mother Teresa.

Or you can send a check payable to Foundation for Children of Vietnam, PO Box 2507, Rockville, MD 20852 and include “Tran Anh Phuong” in the Notes. All donations are tax-deductible. This is her bio as contributed by Sam Nguyen. Our beloved Mother, Tran Anh Phuong, passed away on April 20, 2008 after a long illness. She was the eldest child of Reverend Te Ngoc Tran and Mrs. Tot Thi Nguyen. She resided in Arlington, VA for the past 33 years.
Our Mother attended Southeast Asia Union College in Singapore majoring in English. From 1968-1972, while raising a young family, she served as a Vietnamese instructor at Ft. Bliss, TX preparing military officers to serve in Viet Nam. After a 19 year career as Executive Assistant for the Commission on Engineering and Technical System at the National Academy of Sciences, she retired in 1992.
Our Mother was very devoted to her husband, Phuong Van Nguyen, children, Elisabeth Nguyen Pham, Catherine Nguyen, Sam Nguyen, Victoria Nguyen and her grandchildren, Alexandre Pham, Gabrielle Pham, Nathaniel Pham and Steven Nguyen. She actively volunteered her time and energy in the Vietnamese community especially working with refugees where she served as interpreter, advocate and solicitor for donations from the business community. She expressed random acts of kindness toward all and believed that the love of God flows through each act of kindness. Her strength was her unwavering belief in God and that all adversity can be overcome according to God’s will.
We sincerely appreciate your desire to make donations dedicated in memory and honor of our Mother, Tran Anh Phuong, who has always dedicated her life to help others.
