Baan Feung Fah's Daycare & Play Area (Thailand)

by For Life

Summary

We run a small daycare centre in Baan Feung Fah, a Thai orphanage for children with disabilities aged 0-7. The children spend 90% of their time confined to their wards. For the few hours a day that the children attend our daycare centre, we hope to provide the best care possible. Funds raised from this appeal will go towards buying vital items to enhance and improve the health, well-being, and social development of these young children, including the safe restoration of the outdoor play area.

Challenge

Each year thousands of children are abandoned in Thailand. Children with disabilities are homed in large, state-run orphanages in a town called Pakkred near Bangkok. These homes are overcrowded and underfunded and the children suffer the consequences. Many are malnourished, their ailments left untreated and as a result their health and physical mobility deteriorates. They live in an institutionalized environment, rarely stimulated or engaged and their social and intellectual skills reflect this.

Solution

We run daycare centres within the orphanages, which aim to provide quality care, rehabilitation and love for these children. Our daycare centre in Baan Feung Fah orphanage is getting old and needs rejuvenating to ensure that the children can enjoy our facilities safely and comfortably. In particular the outside play area and equipment is in need of renovation. As the children spend most of their time in beds, outdoor spaces are deeply valued as they provide fresh air, fun and social interaction.

Long-Term Impact

By renovating our daycare centre and making the outside area safe, accessible and more interactive, we can ensure that children enjoy our facilities safely for years to come. By buying good quality equipment, which can withstand Thailand's severe weather conditions, we can build a long-lasting playground with long-term benefits. Children learn a lot through play and we aim to help these children learn and develop social skills, something which institutionalised children often lack.
