Nothing stays the same for good. Life is a chain of changes and chances.

Loreto is in a  transition time when the outgoing CEO – Trish Franklin – is about to leave her ‘second home’ to be back in her family’s arms after twenty years in Vietnam and thirty years in Southeast Asia. The most significant chapter of her life book has been written in this beautiful country. Her footprints have inked on every road to poverty. Her warm heart has followed her to thousands of desperate lives. We bow to the values that she has created. We bow to her boundless love towards the children of Vietnam. 

The legacy of her work will be inherited by the local Team with dedicated and committed staff. Trish is going - yet Loreto will keep moving forward. As Patron of Loreto Trish will pass her wisdom to the Team and will continue to support Loreto with her surpassing efforts.

The best of luck to your coming journey.

‘Good bye ’n See ya’ again, dearest Trish’. 

Ha My: CEO
