BAMBI Supporting the Community: Central Thailand Mission

Published on: July 29, 2019

Continuing our long-term support for Central Thailand Mission (CTM), BAMBI supported three excursions for the children from disadvantaged communities in Thailand during the Thai summer school holidays. CTM organised three different day-trips to Ramayana Water Park, Khao Keow Open Zoo and Pattaya Dolphin World. We were able to offer THB15,000 to help with transportation for each of the events.

“Super Songkran Splash 2019” was held at Ramayana Water Park in April, and about 50 children, teenagers, and caregivers from three disadvantaged communities spent a joyful day at the water park with fun water activities.

In the following month, the children from another community enjoyed a day out at Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Chonburi. For the final excursion this year, 33 children and teenagers from two communities in Pattaya spent a wonderful day at Pattaya Dolphin World.  This program provided those children with a great opportunity to have a fun time just as every child deserves. Given the circumstances they are living under, it is not possible for them to access such activities.

Central Thailand Mission also distributes food and daily life essentials to the local communities every month. These essentials include fruits and vegetables, chicken, cooking oil, flour, fans, clothes, and toys, etc.  They are delivered to other charities in Klong Toey, Pattaya and Sangkhlaburi, various Pakistani refugee families and also to the slum communities in Nong Yai, Pattaya.

This year, BAMBI is also supporting this operation with THB5,000 every month.  It is our great pleasure to be able to be part of the CTM’s projects.  Learn more about Central Thailand’s mission.
