Meeting HRH Prince Michael of Kent
We were thrilled to host some of Thailand's most senior child welfare movers and shakers in the UK recently for exciting discussions about the future of Thailand's child welfare.
Five of Thailand's top government officials, including the Director-General of the Department of Children & Youth, came to London to meet with members of the House of Lords and UK-based social welfare experts to discuss family placement in Thailand.
The group were particularly excited to be welcomed into Kensington Palace by our Royal Patron, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, who gave his whole-hearted support and encouragement to this work.
The group came away truly understanding the significance of foster care in Thailand for vulnerable children, and with renewed momentum and passion in pushing forward a new social welfare system with Care for Children's support.
This is international partnership at it's very best and we believe it will be looked back upon as watershed moment in the development of Thailand's social welfare.
Thank you for all your support. Together we are strategically changing the way vulnerable children are cared for in Thailand. What a privilege!
