The activity enabled the children to meet their friends, encourage each other, do creative activity to relieve their stress and loneliness. We coordinated with teachers and students from KPIS International to continually set up activities. Moreover, we applied World Help’s activities to our students e.g., learning vocabulary about fondness and future dream, writing letter to sponsor.

When Covid-19 situation is better, the program has been operated as usual since June 2022. There are totally 78 children participate – 22 from special activity program, 56 from Saturday class.

Project to support people affected by Covid-19

Covid-19 spread all over area including Bangna express way community and nearby. The impacts are as below;

Children: 100% of children in CDCC program (97 persons) and their families were infected. Some tested positive more than 3 times. Their school records were worse dramatically because they could not maximize their online studying as they lacked the required equipment such as internet and their parents were incapable to support them. As the children did not go to school, they had no friend, so loneliness occurred. There was also no space in their community for them to run or play. Hence, the numbers of sick children were increased. They were stressful as they were teased about their bad school record. Therefore, the suicide rate of Thai student was higher.

Family: Family’s member passed away or parents lost jobs, plus the higher living, made 9 children in our program move back to their hometown as their parents had to find new career. The children also had to find a new school. Some children stopped their studying for a year as their families had inadequate income.

CDCC:According to the state announcement to control Covid-19, CDCC was sometimes closed. However, our team kept working. They went out, visited and helped children and families who were sick, doing home isolation or lost job. We also assisted the elderly in Bangna community area who was chronically ill or handicapped.

2.1 We distribution of meal box, drinking water, survival bag, medicine and medical support 17 communities.

2.2. Seedling Care Project to generate income for the community

Backyard gardentogether with soil were also given to community people to plant for their food. This project helped and relieved problems for 50 families who lost job and got Covid-19. It generated 15,000 THB per family for 3 months – April to June 2022. Project value was THB 750,000.
