This month we had a large group of volunteers visiting Bon Luk.  We took two 4×4 trucks, kindly donated by Dave, and drove to Bon Luk. We had two doctors, one nurse and one physiotherapist in the team. Our medical teams of Dr Laura and Dr Tass saw 46 patients with Bebee helping with translation and Chloe and Charlotte recording patient data.

Meanwhile, our assessment team, including Joanne and Delphine, were talking to villagers. Garry and Ae documented the day with wonderful photos. We gathered more details on students needing assistance with attending secondary school in the next school year.  At Jungle Aid we aim to support and encourage children to attend school until 16 years of age. We walked around the village and were pleased to see that the village has been maintaining overall cleanliness and trash baskets are being used.

Healthy and natural rice crackers generously donated by Laiki rice crackers were distributed among children and children kept on coming back for more. We also helped the village orphanage, taking care of 16 children, by providing bags of rice.

After a successful clinic and assessment, besides our usual distribution of clothes and shoes etc, we also distributed personal hygiene items like combs, soaps, toothbrushes and toothpaste to children as well as grown-ups. We also distributed slippers to young children aged 1 – 10 years of age.  These were kindly donated by the Chiva Som team of volunteers.

We left two boxes of handmade notebooks, made from recycled paper, for children at school. All volunteers were loaded back in to the truck for the dusty journey home. After an amazing day with incredible volunteers and incredible people we headed back home.

Thank you for supporting the work we do…….
