Greetings from Tamar Center in Pattaya. Today we would like to give you an update about the work that we are doing and are happy to report that we have a problem: All our accommodation is full! In the last weeks we were able to take in several new women that wanted to leave the sex industry behind and as many of them came with children we have right now all accommodation places occupied – which is a great problem to have!
We are considering right now to either rent another house where women could stay or find some short time solutions until January as in January one of the people that we take care off is planning to move back home to the home village and two other women will start a one-year long hairdressing and beauty training. This will create some more space for new women in our facility. As it is the goal of our ministry to help women leave the sex industry behind and start a new, normal, life we are very happy that they are ready to take the next step in this direction.
On the other hand, in the last weeks we also experienced why it is so important to always have some empty beds ready: One day in September a woman suddenly showed up at our place with all her things. She asked if she could move in with us and start working at our place. She had never been with us and had never been in one of our programs but had heard from a friend about Tamar Center. In night before she had a very bad customer that hurt her very much and she just wanted to leave the industry behind. We were glad to have space that we could offer her and so she is now staying with us. Her first weeks were difficult as the customer had hurt her very much and she needed several Doctor appointments to get better. But now she is healing very well and is also interacting well with the other women in our program and is starting to integrate herself with us.
Thank you for helping us making sure that there is always a space for a woman in need at Tamar Center. Your donations are helping us to be ready at any moment to take care of the once in need.
Grateful for your Partnership!
