Weʼve raised £10 to Help fund some essentials for children at Phayathai Babies Orphanage Homes, in Bangkok
- Bangkok Thailand
- Funded on Friday, 13th October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
As I am embarking on a trip back to Thailand this coming October with my family, I realised that apart from showing my daughter her roots and heritage, I'd like to show her another side of the world, a not very happy side, so that she can learn to appreciate how fortunate she is by taking a trip to Phayathai Babies' Home.
The Phayathai Babies' Home is located outside of Bangkok and provides care for several hundred orphaned children and HIV positive children from 0-5 years of age. The site, run by Thailand's Department of Public Welfare, is the biggest orphanage for children under age 5 in the country.
Consisting of 18 separate buildings, the need for clean water was vast. Each building houses anywhere from 25-100 children broken up into age categories and health categories.
Having talked to a few of my friends back home, we decided to make it a day of helping and donating the essential items for those children in need. All the money raised from this crowdfunding will go towards all the essentials that The Home may need (I will be contacting the home to see if they could give us a list).
Any spare changes you can give can make such a different to these children and on their behalf, I'd like to thank you in advance for your support. Because people like you can give hope to those less fortunate that this world is not against them.

About the fundraiser
As a Thai person living aboard, I always think of a way to give back to community. As a mother, I want to teach my daughter about compassion and kindness towards other human being and this is why I am taking her to Phayathai Babies Home.
