The 12th August is celebrated as the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. As the Queen is also regarded as mother to all Thai people, this day is also celebrated as Mother’s Day. The children in our different projects celebrated Mother’s Day as well. They did different handicrafts at school and drew pictures for their mothers to give it to them. It’s Thai tradition that children kneel down at their mother’s feet, paying respect to their mothers for everything they have done for them. They present their mother with white jasmine flowers or garlands, in return, the mothers shower their blessing on the children.
We want to say thank you to Céline, Marielle and Liza, three dental students from the University of Bordeaux in France. They offered to teach the children in the mountains dental hygiene, how to properly brush their teeth and did a brief check on the actual situation. We were so glad to have the local schools involved as well and nearly 300 children had a dental check up last week. Thank you for your dedication, time and efforts to improve the lives of those children who have mostly no chance to see a dentist at all.

Please click here to read our 2015 Annual Report
This school year (May2016) the children’s home in Mae La Noi provides education, food and a home for 12 children. So far, the fresh water was used from a nearby pond and passed through a BioSand water filter to provide safe and clean drinking water to the children. Due to the long drought and drop of the ground water level the pond dried out without hope to deliver water again anytime soon. Through the financial support of the Gesinas Stiftung and ImmunoTools GmbH, as well as the Grabbe family we could help immediately to solve the problem by digging a deep well, connected with a new water pump and pipelines into the children home. The children are so happy to have access to water again for their daily needs. On behalf of the children and our employees, but also from the Raintree Foundation and our Club, Thai Care e.V. we would like to say “Thank You” to the Gesinas Stiftung and ImmunoTools GmbH and the Grabbe family for their generous support.
Just think about how important clean and safe drinking water is around the whole world. The Bio Sand Filter from www.cawst.org has made a big difference for thousands of people and we are doing our part in Thailand.
Hot Season in Thailand…but we keep on going. After the Thai New Year (Song Kran), Lukas our intern from Austria painting the children rooms to surprise all kids when they are back from the school summer holidays. But there is more to do and the house parents renew the beam from the kitchen roof. So now we are good to go for the rainy season and safe inside the kitchen. We are glad and happy to have such dedicated staff but also thanks to Lukas who is helping out wherever he can. For more detail please don’t hesitate to contact us and please share and like us.
