The “Bear Boy” Project
Phuket, 18 October 2007

Donation of 11,300 THB for Physical Therapy at Bangkok Phuket Hospital.

This is a particularly touching story about a eleven year old boy from Phuket. He is known as “Nong Mee” (which means “Bear Boy”). The local villagers call him this name because he was unable to walk upright and he used all four limbs to get around.

July 2005 when we found Nong Mee

Now already on a bicycle


He received a C.T. Scan and a M.R.I. Test and the best care in a private room for two days in July 2005.
The overall diagnosis from the Pediatric Specialist, Physical Therapy Specialist, Pediatric Neurologist Specialist was as follows:

1. Celebral Palsy caused by cerebellar
 degeneration (stabilization problem)

2. Mental retardation (caused by many years of isolation)

3. Flat Foot condition

Our club has raised funds to pay for his Therapy since July 2005! He can slowly walk upright meanwhile and is starting to learn to write now. Click here for more info!

Fieldtrip with children from PSV
Phuket, 17 November 2007

Our Lions Club organised a fieldtrip with all the children from PSV in a joint activity with LC Phuket Pearl, Total value 17,000 THB.


We picked up 42 children and 8 mothers in the morning with a big AC coach to bring them to the Phuket Aquarium.

The children loved all the colorful fishes and had a great time, a truly memorable experience!!

After the Aquarium is was time for a real treat in form of Pizza Hut. The children enjoy a very good cuisine in the village, but Pizza is not on the menu at the village and they sure loved very bite of it.

Mother and children alike had great time with this culinary experience!

After Pizza Hut we went to the beach for an afternoon of swimming and playing in the sand.

We also had a look at the Sea Turtle Project that was just near by.

After a couple of ours in the sun we brought a bunch of tired and exhausted, but very happy children back to the village.
