PSC helps to make things brighter at the orphanage

The Pattaya Orphanage, now in its 40th year, has close to 200 children at the home, 30/40 are deaf and have been since birth but there are 35 babies of 2 years or less the youngest, when I was there recently, was 5 days old and they need constant care and attention which is quite demanding for the staff.

The needs of 200 children never cease and are a constant concern to Khun Toy, Director of the Human Help Network. Care and maintenance of the buildings are, sometimes, not on the list of priorities for a child’s wellbeing is the priority concern but a recent problem was brought to the attention of Pattaya Sports Club and that was repairs to  the staff residence. The guttering had fallen down some time ago and water was cascading down from the roof causing considerable damage to the area around the staff quarters.  The water had seeped into the brickwork and, apart from looking bad,  the damp was beginning to be seen  in the staff quarters. This situation could not be allowed to continue  and was a major concern for if the  staff are affected by  colds and chest problems these  could be passed to the   children particularly the babies. The babies can be just a few days old and are susceptible to any colds are viruses that they come into contact with.

Khun Toy asked Pattaya Sports Club for some assistance, which was readily agreed by the committee but this was back in November  and we decided  that it would make sense  to leave it until March  to allow the walls to dry during the very dry period that we normally have in the first 3 months of the year.

The builders set about rectifying the problem at the end of April, before the rains came visiting again, installing guttering, cleaning the walls, adding a water sealant before painting  and a huge improvement was immediate as you can see.

It is a great pleasure to help Khun Toy and her staff for they  work tirelessly to take care of the children, but help is always needed. If you have and toys or clothes that you no longer need, please contact the PSC via the contact page.
