Thank you Maddi – Welcome Noei

Everyone who supports one of our foster children will have come to know the loving nature of Maddi. For almost 4 years, she has actively supported our work. And most importantly: Maddi has always put all her heart into it! It was not just a job for her – the circumstances of the children were always close to her heart and you could always see her good soul in her actions and opinions! Thank you so much for your awesome support!

Maddi will return to Germany in the next few days, but will certainly continue to support us on events in Germany and be there for us!

Even if a lot of tears are falling and we will miss Maddi very much, we’re totally happy about Noei, who will take over Maddi’s responsibilities. She will also be the main contact of Anne from Thai Care e.V. and is there for the foster parents of our foster program. Noei’s name is so incredibly difficult to pronounce, that’s why she likes to introduce herself as “Miss Butter” 🙂 (Noei means butter in English)
After graduating as a physiotherapist, Noei lived in Germany for a year. She has learned German quite well in this one year, but please be a little lenient towards her! It is quite remarkable how good her German is after just one year!
Noei, we are looking forward to your funny and friendly nature and we are sure the work with you will be just as humorous and effective!

Maddi, all the best for you and your son Leon!

Miss Butter, welcome to the Thai Care Family ❤

World Water Day

Today is International World Water Day!
This year, this day is under the common theme “Nature-based solutions for the water”.
The aim of the UNESCO World Water Day is to draw attention to the importance of water as a livelihood for humanity.

And what fits better to the topic than our biosand filter?
Down to the present day, we have already set well over 2000 of these filters in the northern mountainous regions of Thailand, so that families living there are supplied with good, purified drinking water!
For more information look here or send us an e-mail to

WASH training with Leigh from Canada

Thank you Leigh for being with our foundation and train us on WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene). Even in such a short time you made a big impact; not only teaching our office staff and in one of our children’s homes but also being such a dedicated and open minded person. Presently we prepare more material to teach the children of the other homes what we’ve learned.

Everybody knows about the basics of WASH but barely anybody realizes that it is not simply washing your hands after certain occasions. There is much more behind those big words: water, sanitation and hygiene. We hope to brace the people and especially the children for more awareness so they learn how to improve lives with simple but important practices.

Thank you Leigh for your great help and your time with us and our team. ☺
For more details and info about the Raintree Foundation or our partner ThaiCare e.V. please contact us and share as much as possible throughout social media.

The Manlift Way

Thank you so much to the entire team of “Manlift” and Ian, for your visit at our children’s home next to the Hot Coffee Guesthouse and especially for the absolutely generous donation towards the children. The team consists of a group of cyclist friends from Dubai and while on their way doing the Mae Hong Son loop, our team met them for a small break at the Hot Coffee Guesthouse to directly receive their donation to support the children’s home ☺
Our teams from the Raintree Foundation, Thai Care e.V. and the Hot Coffee want to thank the whole team again for the big contribution to help us to help others and change lives.
