Greetings from Pattaya in Thailand. In the last days the temperatures here have dropped to only 17 degrees Celsius – very cold for Thailand. This reminds me about Christmas at home and helps us to get into the Christmas mode. Last night we had our yearly Christmas Party where we first had a nice celebration and later on went to a Seafood Place that all our women love for dinner. It was a lot of fun and we are grateful for the last year!
We were able to help many women leaving sex work and the Bars behind and start a new life. Some, like the lady in the picture finished job trainings with us and some are already employed in other jobs in the City and elsewhere in Thailand. It is a constant joy for us to watch the women change! Yes, it is not always easy and also in the last year we had a number of sad experiences but altogether it was a very good year.
All of this would not have been possible without your support and your help in the last year! Thank you very much for caring for our women and for helping them to step into a new life. Without your support we could not do it!
From everybody at Tamar Center we would like to wish you a blessed Christmas time with your family and friends. Have a good rest and we will continue to update you in the next year!
