Some of the new women at our Family Night
Thank you for your continued support of Tamar Center. Especially this project is very important as we need to have housing available on very short notice. Since the last update, we welcomed three new women to our housing. One only stayed for a couple of days and then moved on and is now working in a factory about 40 minutes away from Pattaya. She was very shocked about her experiences in the sex industry of Pattaya and come to us to work through her experience and then moved on.
The second lady left after about four weeks with us. She is pregnant and because of that had some issues with her family back home. She came to Tamar to stop working in prostitution and we helped her to settle down, receive some counseling, helped her to think about reconnecting with her bigger family and in the end, when she decided to return to her family and makeup with them, we had a small goodbye party for her and the whole team brought her to the Bus Stop so that she could return home.
The third woman is still with us. She is still very young, was also shocked and traumatized about her experiences in the bars but is doing much better now. She has recovered, she is joking around and our counseling team was able to sit down with her and make a plan for the next year for her. She wants to recover fully and then become a hairdresser. We will work with her so that she can fulfill this dream.
We could help these three women through your help. You made it possible for us to have houses available for them to move in and to be helped. Thank you for helping us cover the monthly costs for this. It is worth every cent!
Also, for your information, we updated one of the houses that we rent. The owner of the old house did not do any renovations and so we stopped renting this house and have just signed a new contract with another house that is also in our street but in a much better condition than the other one. We also painted in one house and repaired some smaller things in the other once. There is always something to do!
