With Christmas just around the corner, we all are
thinking about what kind of presents we should buy for the family. However,
there are many underprivileged children around us who do not get anything,
and all you have to do is just open your eyes, and you will see.
in the previous years we are in the middle of preparing a Christmas-party
for HIV positive children from the Rejoice Children Center here in
Chiangmai; children, who were born with this disease, and whose lifespan is
very limited. Our aim is to give a few dozen children a day out with good
and healthy food, games, and even having them receiving a bag of presents,
delivered by Santa Claus himself. And, as sad as it is, for some of them it
might be the last Christmas they can take pleasure in. Despite the help we
receive from Mr. Grahame who lets us use his venue ‘The Pub’ free of
charge, we need some help from members of the community.
It all depends on funds and helpers how many children can
be invited to a Christmas treat at “The Pub”, a very well known
establishment for expatriates, located on Huay Kaew Road.
If your question now is “how can we help?” the answer
is simple. If you have some spare time to help feeding the children, or play
little games with them, just drop by on Saturday, December 10 at 2 p.m.
If you prefer to give money, this is perfectly in order,
(every single baht will be spent for the children) but if you have well
maintained toys, clothes or blankets at home which you do not need anymore,
you may want to consider sponsoring those for these children. Please bring
anything you wish to donate to “The Pub”, from this Saturday onwards.
The sooner, the better, and the more they will receive, the more children
can be invited to join in the fun and excitement of that particular day.
For any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch
with the organizers, Khun Kobkaew, Khun Poolsuk or myself.
