Summary

4 monthly deliveries of essential basic food that was urgently needed to support 10 families in 5 villages in Northern Thailand.

Background

Following on from the initial support from Philanthropy Connections Foundation to provide emergency food support for the families of BPL students during COVID-19 pandemic, some families were still in dire need of help.

Our partner, Ban Pha Lai, identified ten families where the parents previously supported themselves with employment in the local elephant camp and factories but whose work has not resumed.

While the families have tried to grow some food at home, the drought has hit even this small supplement, and nothing grows. Therefore, there is zero income for these ten families.

Goals and Results

Each food package is expected to last a family one month and comprises

  • 30 kgs of rice
  • 20 cans of fish
  • 30 eggs
  • 4 bottles of cooking oil
  • 30 packs of instant noodles

BPL distributed the food packages to these 5 villages

  • Pha Lai Village: 2 families of 10 people
  • Huay Go Village: 2 families of 10 people
  • Pang Dang Nok Village: 2 families of 8 people
  • Pang Dang Nok Village: 2 families of 7 people
  • Huay Pong Village: 2 families of 15 people

Sponsors

  • Help Helpen in Thailand | 60.000 THB

PCF had been supporting the preschool in Baan Pha Lai for five years from 2017 - 2021. Baan Pha Lai is a rural indigenous community, and students come from three surrounding villages to go to the preschool.

Thanks to our sponsors, PCF covered the running costs of the preschool until the local government stepped in to support the school. This happened thanks to our efforts to bring the school to the attention of the Thai authorities.

OUR FIELD VISIT TO CHIANG DAO

Last week, our team visited Baan Pha Lai School in Chiang Dao Province, which supports over 70 students from five different ethnic backgrounds. We support the school's operational costs including teacher salaries, lunch meals, capacity-building workshops, and basic necessities i.e. toothbrushes and toothpaste.

We were in awe of the children. Not only were they so energetic and in high spirits, but so well disciplined....they were taught to meditate every morning, pray before eating and brush their teeth after, clean their plates and recycle plastic, shower before their nap, and help their younger peers. We could all learn a thing or two from these children!

Thanks to the wonderful teachers, who work so hard at ensuring these children receive quality education and grow up to be healthy!

𝟭𝟴 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗛𝗦 𝗢𝗙 𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗨𝗚𝗚𝗟𝗘, 𝗕𝗨𝗧 𝗔𝗟𝗦𝗢 𝟭𝟴 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗛𝗦 𝗢𝗙 𝗛𝗘𝗟𝗣 🍚🥚🥫

Ban Pha Lai is a village in Chiang Dao District with a population of approximately 750 people from Akha, Lisu and Karen ethnic groups living in 150 households.

We've been supporting their preschool and when COVID hit, the school was closed, and the villagers could not go to work. They asked us to help their most vulnerable.

Intermittently for 18 months, we provided essential food supplies to villagers who were in need, such as people who are quarantined, elderly and sick people. In the most difficult time when the village was in full lockdown, we supported 50 families, around 250 people.

We supplemented their diet - relieving their meagre budgets and helping them to get the basic needs to survive.

Thanks to Help Helpen in Thailand and NTCC - Netherlands-Thai Chamber of Commerce for this support.
