Our mission is to support the most needy children in Thailand.
We have set up a blog so we can share all our activities in one place. We desperately need to raise funds this year to support our projects, which include the supporting of orphans, disabled, sick and injured, and HIV+ children in Thailand, as well as of refugee children travelling from Burma into Thailand. Over 4,000 children rely on us for the provision of food, a home, education, a future, and most of all, for the knowledge that they are loved.
We help by supporting carefully chosen projects and organisations in Thailand. Our partners are on the ground, and know precisely what’s needed. We become closely involved with each partner that we support, visiting them regularly, and keeping careful track of both the needs that they have to meet, and how the financial support we can offer is used.
Thailand is not a poor country, but millions of people still live in dire poverty. People travel to find work, girls are tempted or sometimes forced into the sex trade in Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya.
Thailand ranks 17th in the world ‘league table’ of HIV infections. Over 600,000 Thais are infected; many of these are young people and children. Nevertheless, HIV/AIDS children really do have a future nowadays. Anti-retroviral drugs keep the children healthy, and we ensure that they have love, education and hope. Our HIV/AIDS orphanages aren’t sad places. They’re full of lovely, lively, loud kids.
See videos of some of our projects that work to help HIV + children!
We also support Disabled kids in Thailand could end up at the ‘bottom of the heap’. Instead, we make sure they have a place in the world, through education and the encouragement to believe.
The Camillian Home at Lat Krabang is one of the projects for disabled children that we support.
We care for refugee children fleeing the violence of rival armies in Burma. They arrive in Thailand, many orphaned, all penniless, in need of food, education, and a future.
In Thailand, children daily face great danger. Whether the street kids who live in desperation, prey to drug dealers and sexual exploitation, or the orphans who would otherwise be destitute and uncared for, we step in with the promise of a better life.
See a video of the Father Ray Day Care Centre for Street Kids.
We also support a number of projects taking care of orphans in Thailand. See videos on the Ban Tharn Namchai Orphange and the Pattaya Orphange to see how the wonderful people who run the projects give them the love and support they would otherwise have been completely without.
