Dear friends and supporters of rotary

rotary kids weekend 2014Almost every year since 2004, the Rotary Club of Koh Samui has invited 30-40 children from the Mercy Centre in Klong Toey, Bangkok. These children are mainly orphaned or abandoned, and it is an opportunity for them to leave the concrete jungle that is their home, and visit our paradise island. This year we will have 36 children with their chaperones and they will be here from 5-7th December, staying at the Ozo Resort, Chaweng Beach Road. We are in the process of planning a programme of events for these children, which I will circulate when complete for anyone who wishes to join in.

But Rotary needs your support to help us cover the cost of travel, which includes rental of 3 minibuses, diesel for the round trip, and ferry crossings; as always we estimate 2,000 baht per child. If you wish to donate, please ask for the Bank details of our Project Account. If you prefer to make a cash donation, I can arrange collection.

We will also be presenting each child a Christmas gift to the value of 150-200 baht, and again we ask your support in this. If you are willing to provide a gift, please wrap the gift, noting the approximate age range and gender bias of the gift, boy, girl or unisex. The children’s ages are shown below.

If you wish to sponsor one of these delightful children, or take part in any of our planned events, please contact Past President Adele Smith; 0897256795 or email

Thank you from Rotary Club of Koh Samui
