Presents for kids in Children
Presents for kids in Children's Hospital

As with all charitable works, society tend to give to the needy who are faced with sudden disastrous situations and this is rightly so, as emergency supplies are needed for survival. However, after the dust settles, these needy persons are left to their own devices. The Foundation's philosophy is that people need to be taught self-sufficiency, and not be wholly dependent on outside sources of help, therefore, it is our mission to equipt them with appropriate life-skills, leadership enhancement and community-mindedness, so that they may 'survive' in the long run.

 It starts with Giving ...

The Foundation co-operated with other like-minded organisation to present blankets to kids who had to be hopitalised in the government Children's Hospital in Bangkok. The children were delighted to be presented with gifts of toys and blankets, during their stay in the dreariness of hospital setting. The team that visited the children also performed songs and drama, with games for the children to brighten up their day.

.....and continues with Teaching

 On another occasion, the  Foundation sent volunteers to the Hilltribe living in Samerng Forest, where the Foundation used to distribute winter caps to them. We liased with the  leaders there to gather those who would be interested to learn how to knit these winter caps, so that they may be able to make it for themselves and their families, so that before the wintry months arrive, they would be well prepared for the cold weather that usually hits these hilly areas.

A group of village housewives and young teens arrived at the centre, eager to learn the new skill. With the donated knitting needles and yarn provided by the Foundation, they spent the next 3 days learning and knitting from the morning till dusk, refusing to go home till they had completed what they came to achieve.

Chako was an enthusiatic learner, very quick to pick up the skill, and even went on to learn new and more complicated patterns. Finishing in half the time, she proudly wore the cap she made, saying,"Thank you, Foudation for Life, for teaching me how to knit. I can now put this new skill to good use !" (she hopes to be able to earn a little extra income to to help with the expenses of her ailing grand-dad)

The Foundation thanks all of you who have contributed to this little sucess story in the life of a hilltribe girl who now is equipped with the ablilty to "fish" for herself, instead of waiting for others to provide her with the "fish".

Any comments or feedback to help us improve our services to our clients are greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
