Volunteer support is one of the most essential needs of the Thai Mission.
Without their 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 the 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 must provide them with a well-rounded education. We are in need of Teachers for English, 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 livable condition for the children. These could be minor or major renovation projects or just periodic routine maintenance. We encourage organised teams with their arrivals arranged with the mission staff so that transportation to the mission and 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 senior students or practitioners who wish to have an overseas multicultural experience. We envision that teams would visit the Mission at least every 6 months. The 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 developing illness that have yet to reveal themselves. They need to begin a regular health care program that includes checkups, inoculations, health screening, and etc. Assistance with educating mission staff on establishing and maintaining a 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.
