Children Play area in our houses
Time for another update from us at Tamar Center. In July and August, we were able to take three new women into Tamar Center, all three of them very young (17, 18 and 21 years old). Thanks to your support we had nice rooms waiting for them so that they can make them into a cozy new home. Some of the cases are challenging but currently all of them are doing well and making good progress.
We have also started the process to replace all the mattresses that we have in the houses for the women. They are already a couple of years old, and we want the women to have the best night sleep that is possible. You will also see attached two pics from the play area for children in our houses and from an outing that we did with the Tamar children to the new local Dino Park.
The other news is that we are currently upgrading our Drop-in Center in Soi 6. We are changing the complete electric wiring, replacing old aircon units with environmentally friendly inverter machines, giving it a fresh coat of paint and are also building a sleeping room for women from the bars. Currently we have daily women come to sleep at our place and we want them to have a save place. They are sleeping right now on a sofa behind the Hair Salon (see pics below) , but we would like to have a room ready for them to give them some privacy and for them to rest properly.
In the next months we will also roll out more counseling services in our Drop-in Center to engage the women more and show them different options of vocational training and employment. We still have some space in our housing and hope to fill that soon with new women from the bars that would like to change their lives.
Thank you for helping us and being a blessing to the women on the lookout for a safe place to stay!
