Zonta Adopts Orphans

Zonta members and kids from the Adopt an Orphan program in a group photo at the Red Cross on Saturday, October 6.

By Margaret Bhadungzong
The Zonta Adopt an Orphan ZAO has been an ongoing project since 2010 for the Zonta Chiang Mai Club. The orphans’ families have been affected by HIV crisis impact. At the moment there are twelve students in the ZAO program receiving financial support for their education. The students are also encouraged to develop their own particular skill in art, music, dancing and even vegetable carving. The students are supported by the ZAO program until they complete the last year of high school.
The education funds are the result of a fundraising campaign, “Children Helping Children” started by Z Joyce Morgan. Students from the international schools were asked to take home canisters to raise money from their family members and friends during a three week period. The participating schools were PTIS, Lanna International School, Varee International School and Chiang Mai International School. Z Asiyah Intaraprasart who is chairman of the ZAO introduced collection boxes placed at twenty leading businesses in Chiang Mai and Bangkok to raise funds.
The most senior student of the ZAO program is now studying at the Chiang Mai Rajaphat College. His deejay talents enable him to serve as volunteer in the community radio network. Zonta Past President Jiamjit Boonsom was able to find a Bangkok-based sponsor for his education funds.
On Saturday, October 6, 2012 Past President Jiamjit Boonsom and President of Zonta Raya Luelai presented donations to the students at the Red Cross building.
Additional Zonta Chiang Mai members on the ZAO committee are: Z Suwannee Roncoroni, Z Suvimol Limlenglert, Charter President Somboon Supasert and Past President Margaret Bhadungzong. www.zonta-chiangmai.org.
