Volunteer support is one of the most essential needs of Rescue Mission.
Without volunteer support it would be impossible to cover the costs of operating such a facility as we must keep running twenty four hours a day, seven days a week .
It is important to note that we require all of our volunteers before being allowed to work on our Mission site, to provide evidence of having been certified through an appropriate agency in their country of being approved to work with children. Our children’s safety is paramount.
Most of the children who arrive at Rescue Mission have never had any formal education. Qualified and licensed Teachers are in need to provide the education the children deserve to help them shape their future. We are in need of Teachers for English, Thai Language, technical skills, sports, crafts and basic hygiene.
Skilled and licensed volunteer tradesmen are in high demand to help keep the mission’s facilities in a safe and maintained condition for the existing children and in readiness for future expansion of more vulnerable children.. These could be minor or major renovation projects or just periodic routine maintenance. We encourage organised teams to advise the Rescue Mission staff so that transportation, materials, safety checks and budgets on-site can be arranged.
Our children are in need of regular dental care to include screening for dental repairs, as well as oral hygiene treatment. We welcome teams of dental academics and their students or practitioners who wish to serve our children with dental skills. We envision that teams would visit Rescue Mission at least every 6 months. Rescue Mission would schedule these visits at the times convenient to the volunteer teams.
Almost all of the children arriving at the mission have never been seen by a medical doctor. Many may be effected by illness and others developing illness. They need to begin a regular health care program that includes checkups, inoculations, health screening, care plans etc. Assistance with educating mission staff and maintaining our medical records system is also needed. Visits by individual physicians or teams of medical students lead by a senior physician or specialist are needed at least every six months.
