A little Christmas story…..

A little Christmas story from Germany that happened today:The Christ Child seems to come in the form of a young man with a mask this year. 👼🏼 The doorbell just rang at the door of my mom Elfriede (2nd chairwoman of Thai Care e.V.). An unknown young man was standing at the door and asked if he could drop something off there for Thai Care. Soon after the young man left my mom told me on the phone about the extraordinary encounter: “And then he took out two crumpled envelopes from the inside of his jacket pocket, smoothed them out and handed them to me. I wished him a Merry Christmas and then he left. He must have parked his car at the neighbors’ on purpose. Maybe to remain anonymous?”I asked her on the phone to open the envelopes.”Anne, there’s money in there. And don’t ask how much!!! One hundred, two hundred, three hundred, four hundred, it doesn’t even stop *laughs*, one thousand six hundred, ….. two thousand five hundred euros! And no name, nothing! Just a note ‘for Thai Care’, I cannot believe it!”And on my request she opened the second envelope: “Here is also only a small note ‘for Anne – one nicely visit to the restaurant’ with 100 euros in it!”We are now both speechless… and will certainly remain speechless for some time. Maybe I will reach the very extraordinary Christ Child this way:I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks to you. Really, I am deeply touched and infinitely grateful. You cannot imagine how happy the children will be about this gift.And I am especially happy that there are people like you. Not because you have donated so much money. But because you are so selfless in this, for many of us, difficult time and your heart is obviously so big that you give a part of your heart to our Thai children on Christmas Eve. THANK YOU.This year has been particularly crazy, I think everyone of us will agree on that. But the fact that such positively crazy events happen again and again makes life worth living. Let’s all look confidently into the future and hope that we will get through the difficult times well and healthy.I wish everyone a wonderful, peaceful Christmas and a healthy and positive New Year!Lots of love, Anne Brouer(1st chairwoman of Thai Care e.V.)

Christmas Surprise

Last Thursday our 1st chairwoman Anne Brouer got a very surprising call. Anika Lindner, longtime sponsor of Thai Care e.V. and owner of the store Himmel No.7 in Friesoythe, has won the store window competition and would like to donate the prize money of 500,- € to Thai Care e.V.. In the last few days, retailers, banks and service providers had the opportunity to decorate their shop windows in a particularly beautiful and Christmassy way. If you look at the photos of the shop window of Himmel No. 7, Anika has more than earned the 1st place. The theme of her window is “The Snow Queen” and can certainly be admired for a few more weeks on Moorstraße. On Saturday Anne and Anika met in front of the window to hand over the check. Anika, we thank you for your great support and especially for never forgetting our children in Thailand for many years. (Himmel No.7 is also here on Facebook, check out their page) 😉

Foster parents needed !!!

Dear Thai Care and Raintree Foundation friends,

this week we have added 13 new children to the waiting list of our sponsorship program. We are urgently looking for godparents for the children and it would be nice if we could mediate the little ones quickly. All further information about the sponsorship as well as photos, first names and birthdays of the children can be found here:

Two of the children are absolute emergencies because the financial situation of the family is incredibly bad. You know that we never publicly show off the fate of the children to conclude sponsorships as quickly as possible. If you would like more information about the children, please send us an e-mail to or write to us via the contact form on our website.The girl is named Suchanya and is 5 years old.The boy is named Nathakun and is 8 years old.It would be great if we could find a godfather for the two kids quickly.

Get in touch 🙂 THANK YOU
