This Christmas we want to be a blessing to the many bargirls in Pattaya that have lost their jobs, income and often their housing during these Covid-19 times. Thailand still has its borders closed to Tourists and so there is no economic recovery yet. We want to prepare and distribute 300 big Giftbags (including rice, noodles, fish cans, hygiene articles, gifts and much more) and distribute them in week leading up to Christmas in the hardest hit redlight areas of the City. Help us give hope!
This project will help to show the Bargirls that they are not forgotten and that people care for them and are willing to help. We also hope to built new relationship with these women in order to be there for them in the future as well.
The bags will adress the urgent food needs that the women have and will give some much needed encouragement and joy to them as well.
Our goal for the women is to leave Pattaya, maybe return to their families and to have a normal life outside of the sex industry. We will train the women job skills and help them to find employment or help them to start their own small business so that they can provide for themselves and their children. Also, when they return to their families, they will help to prevent other young girls and boys to start a work in the sex industry.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive.

In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
