THANK YOU to everyone who is still supporting our small charity Baan Romjit. Hannah Mundy has continued to be our contact with Agape Orphanage and School in Mae Sot on the Thailand-Burma border and Khun David, the headteacher and inspiration behind Agape, has achieved a really amazing amount since we last saw him.
Noi and Arlene will be visiting Agape in November to take more funds and look at progress. Photos of development will be posted soon.
Thai House Charity- Baan Romjit- Shelter for the Heart
In the wake of the tsunami of December 2005, Noi and Arlene Ramasut set up a charity called Baan Romjit ( Shelter for the Heart) www.baanromjit.org to help children in Thailand who had been traumatised by the terrible event which destroyed many of their homes and killed or injured their family members.
After a two and a half year committment to that project, they moved the focus of the charity to the Thai- Burma border where many refugee and migrant children are suffering the effects of displacement and poverty. Baan Romjit has helped to renovate a school called Hle Bee so that now some 300 children are being educated in classrooms which have weather proof roofs and concrete floors. The charity has also built a dormitory for the teachers who are all refugees themselves living on very small stipends.
Thecurrent project is to help an orphanage/school called Agape which was established by a refugee teacher and his wife to care for children living on the streets and the riverbanks under the bridge connecting Thailand to Burma.
Baan Romjit is supported by many friends and customers of The Thai House and various fund raising events are held during the year. If you would like to commit to a small monthly donation to Baan Romjit, please contact Arlene on arlene @thaihouse.biz.
EVERY PENNY YOU GIVE GOES DIRECT TO THE PROJECT. THERE ARE NO ADMINISTRATION COSTS. NOI, ARLENE , DAVID AND HANNAH GIVE THEIR SERVICES GRATIS AND MEET THEIR OWN COSTS.
