order to provide immediate relieve for children who have lost members
of their families, their home or any kind of income we have just
started a new project. We are financially helping those families who
are in the most desperate situation. This project is meant to be a
short term (one year) solution. We are closely monitoring the financial
and social situation of these children for the next year und
then revaluate their status to decide whether they still need
financial support or not. As many organizations (including us) have
planned projects in the effected areas, it is very hard to tell what
the future of all these effected children might be like. After visiting
schools and camps in the effected areas (Phuket & Phang Nga
provinces) we know of many children that need immediate help. Read more!
goal is to set up a Children's Village which can accommodate up to 100
orphaned and children in need. Our aim is to provide an atmosphere for
the children which is as close as possible to a normal family life. One
of our priorities is to give the children a good education that will
enable them a better future as they grow into adulthood.
One of the avenues to achieve this goal is by organising a long term
sponsorship program. Many caring organisations and individuals have
expressed a great interest to be involved in such a meaningful project.
Cultural activities together with physical education are important
issues as we plan this concept...read
In order to achieve these goals have to raise sufficient funds. Early estimates indicate that we will need to raise in the region of 25,000,000 Thai Baht, which is around 500,000 Euro for our Children's Village. As members of Lions International we guarantee that every Penny raised will be used to support this Children's Village project. Donations how ever large or small will be deeply appreciated.
