Right now it is Songkran or Thai New Year in Thailand and the food that you help to purchase will enable these people to celebrate with a simple meal.
We are so thankful to everyone who generously donated towards food for the 77 families in the slum that we provide food for every week. We give out over 160 kgs of rice every week as well as 160 packs of mama noodles and 160 tins of sardines. We give out 80 bottles of oil, fish sauce, bags of salt and packs of rice noodles too.
In addtition to this disabled children recieve milk formula and elderly people receive incontinence pads and fresh fruit. These are all just the basic needs which make a huge difference to the lives of these people. It is the difference between a child going to bed on a full or an empty tummy.
We simply could not do this without your support so thank you very much.
Thank you to everyone who has been giving towards this project. Over the Christmas and new year period many families simply don't have enough to eat. Many of the NGO organisations also take a break and this means that support that usually comes in is not available. The children dont go to school over the new year period and this means that they cannot even depend on the meal they get once a day there.
Your donations enabled us to be able to give some of the most needy families a 5kg bag of rice and extra supplies.
For the price of a cup of coffee, you can feed a family for a week. Thanks so much to all of our donors big and small. Every amount makes a big difference.
A big thanks to the people who donated to this appeal. A little bit goes a long, long way here in Thailand. When we show up in the slums with some food essentials such as rice, noodles, fish sauce, oil, salt and tinned fish the thank you is written in the peoples smiles. For some people they may have not eaten properly for many days and although these supplies will not create a gormet meal, they are a HUGE help. It's more than just food though! A hug, a listening ear and a sincere how are you are things these people are also deficiient in. Thanks for making a difference in these people's lives.
