Tan Mai Orphanage (in Bien Hoa)

The VAN group (see their FB) know at least 8 adoptees from that orphanage, including one of their founding key staff, Bree Sibbel.


I info kindly provided by Sr Susan McDonald (also see her facebook info page) & fwd by Patrick L:

Tan Mai Orphanage ( Now known as MN 2 ) was run by the ‘ Dominican Sisters ‘, (Nuns) and it was located on the outskirts of Bien Hoa, in the town of Tan Mai not far from Saigon.

Sister Hai was a Sister present at this time, but sadly has recently passed away. It has been reported that there were records kept there, albeit in a rough book. and that a Sister Rosalie is currently managing it.

For anyone  interested in getting in touch with Tan Mai Orphanage, this mailing address will work. I don’t have the proper street address, but you could write and ask the sisters for this information. When you write provide your e-mail address in case it is less expensive for the sisters to respond in this way.
