Yasothon Orphanage (Thailand) - Free travel for Inbound Helpers
Permalink  
 


Hi ALL

I am working with an Australian group that helps out Thai orphans. In November we plan to travel to Yasothon province and refurbish an orphanage that has fallen into disrepair. Kind of a Thai Backyard Blitz. The orphanage has 182 kids most of them HIV positive. The charity is called Hands Across the Water and 100% of all donations go to the kids. Look at their website at www.handsacrossthewater.com.au

I need a Thai speaker to come with me to Yasothon to find accommodation, transport, materials etc. I shall find the money for your fares etc.

Contact me at E: johnfenn@wn.com.au
Thanks, John

Hi Sawsdee

The dates for the work to be done are Nov 15 until about Dec 3. But we need to do a trip ip there before that to organise things like accommodation, transport, maybe a cook a translator etc.

Thanks for your interest, any help is welcome. I just wish I had more time to try and learn some more Thai.

John Fenn

Hi

would be great if you could create a forum article to track the progress of your project and include pics and i will do what i can to generate publicity.

as an example
just finished a tour to Thailand for Songkran with aussie group of 12, we created a forum article, you can find it by searching the word "songkran".

Hi all,

Thanks for the suggestion about a discussion group Sawasdee. I shall get on it in a week or so. The delay is because I have been talking to David via email and we are to meet in York soon. I was trying to organise how to meet him when he suggested today that he will pass thro my own town on the way to work in Kal.

Anyway after the meet I shall fill you all in.

John Fenn
