Dear members and Friends of Rotary
From time to time, the Rotary Club is asked to help projects which are not based in Samui, such as my recent appeal for help in providing second hand clothing for a mental hospital in Kanom.
I have been asked to help again by a Friend of Rotary, Warunee Sarika who is working with others to support a school in Central Thailand.
The school is called Banpadeng located in an isolated, mountainous part of Petchaburi Province. It has 700 students out of which, 200 are very poor, coming from families living in houses built of bamboo with straw roofs. These children lack even basic living requirements, such as toothbrushes and paste, soap, basic medicines and blankets for the cold season.
Warunee’s group hope to provide for 200 children:
Ø Second hand clothes for children aged between 5 – 12 years old
Ø (These can be dropped off at my house in Namuang or brought to the SOS lunch on Wednesday 16th September)
Ø Blankets (cost estimate 70 baht), toothbrush, toothpaste and soap.
Ø Bicycles for children who have the furthest to travel at a cost of 1,100 baht each.
If you are willing to help with clothes and/or cash donation, please contact me; firstname.lastname@example.orgStay updated with Samui Times by following us on Facebook.
