July News 2014 – No. 4

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Rescue Mission for Children. This is the Fourth of a regular newsletter to keep you informed of what’s happening at the Centre. Each newsletter I will share a little of the journey one child has had before they joined us. This week we decided to take a break from planting and go to Maelao Open Zoo. The children were absolutely thrilled to see wild animals that are not caged in, seeing animals wandering and enjoying human interaction. We had a picnic lunch at the park, the menu for the day consisted of 4 different dishes, pork sausage, mince meat with herbs, north-eastern sausage and chicken tom yam soup.

Kum Johmuang is a 10 year old boy who comes from the Burma border and he has been with us for this year. His family has fled from war and conflict from the neighbouring country, Burma. Kum and his siblings had to walk for miles for months before they reached the Thai border. Kum had never been to school and had no idea what school was. Now he has the stability of one place, can go to school and smiles everyday.
