    Story

    Hi my name is Orlaith and I've been given the opportunity to go to Thailand to help underprivileged children.

    This project was setup 15yrs ago by an American Redemptorist Fr Ray Brennan who was based in Thailand. Fr Ray worked with Street Children and Children with disabilities and his moto was

    “WE NEVER TURN A NEEDY CHILD AWAY”

    Currently the Fr Ray Foundation looks after over 850 disadvantaged young people.

    Our role when we visit is to interact with the children and staff, visit all the projects, and give the children a memory. We will help with practical tasks like serving dinner, teaching pre-school children English or helping students prepare for university.

    We also spend time with the children of migrant workers who live in corrugated iron shacks and have no rights as they are not Thai.

    We then move to the south of Thailand where we are helping to build a small school for local children. We will be teaching nursery children in the morning and working with older children in the afternoons.

    The name of our school is Baan Pan Suk which means House of Shared Friendsip

    I would like to raise money to bring with me to Thailand to help with these ongoing projects. Any money raised goes a long way in Thailand so thank you for supporting me.
