Baan Unrak provides housing, food, clothing, health care, education and comfort to over 140 children and destitute young mothers in the small town of Sangkhlaburi in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Located 20 Km from the Burmese/Mynamar border, Baan Unrak (BU) serves both Thai citizens and displaced ethnic groups escaping human rights abuses, persecution and human trafficking. Many of the children and women living at the home were abandoned by family members and left with no civilian rights and no resources. Baan Unrak, which translates to "The Home of Joy," offers a safe place for these women and children and provides them with the means to pursue a self-sufficient future.
