Each month we have a challenge of ensuring we can get our core team to access our most remote village where there are KNU soldiers. This month was no different and we were relocated to a safe house near the village where many of the children are now living as their previous location was too unstable. They are staying very close to the border and it took us around 4 hours to arrive safely after several wrong turns!!! Our core team of volunteers consists of our nurse, doctor, osteopath and also our assessment team which is invaluable to get updates on the instability of the location and vulnerability of the people from this village. We were also very lucky to have our graphic designer out with us taking more video clips and photos to ensure we capture the work we do and the needs of the village.

In our 4×4 truck supplied each month by Dave from Hua Hin, we are able to get to the village through terrain which often requires a 4×4. We were able to see 34 patients with different illnesses that they are unable to treat.  The diseases ranged from severe anaemia, cataract’s to malaria which will be followed up in a local hospital supported by JA.

The village assessment was completed with new details of external issues such as safety and whether children can get access to a local Thai school. This is through the village leader who knows the details of each person.

Clothes and shoes are always desperately needed and once they had received medical care were waiting for the donated clothes to be distributed. They are gratefully received and nothing is turned away apart from the odd pair of trousers that can fit a 6’3 western man or lady!!!

After an amazing day with incredible volunteers and incredible people we work with we headed home.

Thank you for supporting the work we do…….
