    Dream to survive
    By - Evie van Maanen - intern
    Last Wednesday the prison staff invited us to visit them more often. You need to know that we are the only NGO in Bangkok that is allowed to go into the hospital section of the prison. Just once a month. But if we are allowed to go twice a month we can build better relations with the prisoners. And that is really important....

    Friends in prison
    By - Jan-Peter Kelder - Fundraiser
    “My name is Joseph and I’m from Liberia. The last 6 months have been the most terrifying months in my live. I’ve been so stupid to smuggle drugs to Thailand. I was desperate for money and then you do unwise things sometimes. I got caught by the police and ended up in one of the most notorious prisons...

    Worth waiting for
    By - Evie van Maanen - Intern
    It is a usual sunny Wednesday morning, when we arrive at the prison hospital. Because we want the prisoners to trust us, we make sure they see the same faces every time when we visit.

    A difficult Christmas for a ex-prisoner
    By - Jan-Peter Kelder - Communication manager

    By - Hariette Mingoen - Officer in Charge
    Once again the support of the Siam Care staff is tangible and lively during the monthly visit in the prison hospital. The prisoners are already sitting and waiting for Siam Care to arrive.

    Letter from Mr. Pat
    By - Adrienne Blomberg - Director
    The work of Siam-Care in the prison, can be a slow process to seeing improvement and changes in lives. Long sentences contribute to the inmates feeling lethargic and hopeless, difficult to motivate or stimulate to look after their health.  But there are high lights which make the work, the time and effort put into it,...

    The end is in sight for Loong Chai!
    By - Adrienne Blomberg - Director
    Loong Chai is always one of the first to be waiting for the Siam-Care staff on their prison visits to the hospital. Seated in his wheelchair or sometimes standing and waiting, he will be right at the entrance of the ward (huge cell) and as soon as the staff step in, his face turns into a big smile. After he fell during his...

    By - Adrienne Blomberg - Siam-Care Foundation Director
    The Siam-Care team visits Klong Prem prison hospital once a week. This hospital accepts the sick from 7 prisons in greater Bangkok and the very sick from different parts of the country.

    Prison visit Impression by British Volunteer
    By - Marian Burrows-Smith - Volunteer
    I was a bit anxious about visiting a prison.  I had never been in one before.  I was told they would take my passport, that I couldn’t take anything in with me and that the gates would be securely locked behind me.When one pictures a prison for drug users in Thailand one thinks of dank and dirty dungeons,...
