B.A.M.B.I. (Bangkok Mothers & Babies International) (1982)
…is a project of the Childbirth & Breastfeeding Foundation of Thailand (CBFT). We are a non-profit organization run by volunteer parents. Our aim is to provide support and companionship for pregnant women and parents of young children of all nationalities in Bangkok.
BAMBI supports all moms whatever their birth and baby feeding choices may be. At the same time, we promote what is considered by UNICEF, the WHO, and the Thai government as ‘best practice’ to promote and support healthy moms and babies.

BAMBI is a non-profit organization. Surplus funds raised through membership, donations, and activities are donated to local charities which reflect BAMBI’s concerns and priorities in supporting mothers and children. In any given year, the committee may choose to focus on one or two charities as principle benefactors. BAMBI volunteers’ annual membership fees are also donated to a charity chosen by the committee.
We are always looking for new ideas for worthy causes to support. Please let us know if you know of any non-profit organization which could use our help.
BAMBI is managed by a member-elected group of volunteers. We welcome BAMBI members to join us in running this growing organization. Some positions require a larger time commitment, while others simply require that you have a smiling face and give a little time. Some can be fulfilled almost entirely from home, while others will have you out and about at various BAMBI functions and in the community.
You’ll be sure of a warm welcome!
