Our team consisted of 10 volunteers who met on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7am for our 1.5 hour journey to Pala-U Noi Village.

As soon as we arrived, James Goyder, a coach from Dusit Thani Hua Hin Football Academy set up straight away to begin a football clinic with the children. This has become a regular part of the trip and the children are always eager to join in and play.

Our medical team saw 25 patients with illnesses that ranged from mild coughs and colds, severe chest infections to a badly burnt baby.

The accident happened the day before and covered a large area on the baby’s leg. We were able to treat the baby to prevent infection.

The mother of the baby is only 16 years old and we discussed in depth ways of preventing further accidents within the house while the mum is cooking.

We also had discussions on women’s hygiene to help prevent the increased number of urine infections.

With the help of Siripan, a JA translator, the area manager was able to follow up with discussions about two new projects – extending the roof of the school and construction of toilets next to the school.

A deposit was given to purchase materials for the roof extension, however, a meeting would need to be arranged to discuss this with land owner to discuss the project and get permission to proceed with the toilets. A meeting for the following week was arranged.

There was a request for educational sponsorship by a young man who is in his first year of studies at Rahajapat University in Petburi. He has requested financial assistance so that he can become a Physical Education Teacher.

 

Thank you for all your support and helping us make this happen………….
