Mr Tong spent his savings for a piece of land, turned it into a cemetery, and since 2001, he has been giving proper burial to aborted foetuses from abortion clinics in Vietnam.
Day time, he works as a construction worker. Nighttime, he makes his rounds to the hospitals to collect remains of aborted babies so he could bury them in his cemetery.
Some two hours away from the orphanage is this beautiful and quiet garden, the resting place for our little angels.
We lighted joss sticks for our little angels
Most of our little angels here would have names given by Mr Tong
Some of our little angels here are lucky – they get to be visited by their Moms and Dads once in a while
With two of our girls from the orphanage, we lighted incense sticks for our little angels
Some babies from stillbirths and miscarriages are also here. Their parents had requested Mr Tong if their babies could stay here and be playmates with the rest of our little angels
Mr Tong has this little corner in the orphanage. This is where he prepares our little angels for burial
Both aborted on 7 October 2016, babies Maria and Guise sat quietly in their clay caskets. Our prayers are with these little angels and their families.
Babies Maria and Guise were both buried on the day of our visit to the cemetery

“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is ‘Abortion’, because it is a war against the child. A direct killing of the innocent child, ‘Murder’ by the mother herself. And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love. And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.” ― Mother Teresa
