The Red Cross NWS branch.

Post by trubrit » March 14, 2018, 8:21 am

I often post about the fund raising activities we all get up to on behalf of our local Red Cross so I thought just for a change I would show where some of that money and a lot of effort goes .
This destitute family was brought to our attention by the village headman of their mountain village after the recent birth of their latest child .They are all living in a make do shelter, can't really call it a house, getting by as best they could but never asking or expecting assistance from any one .When we heard of their plight we went to see them to see whether they could be helped, I'm glad to say with the combined financial assistance of the local Amphoe and Red Cross funds we are going to build them a , be it modest, a small proper constructed house and have arranged for an expert on self sufficient agriculture to teach them how to produce crops to eat and hopefully able to sell the surplus at market .

I would just add they have given their permission for me to detail this .
Now that's not the the only example of how the Red Cross work locally .Just last week the team attended a rather distressing incident where a house was burnt down, being of wooden construction it was totally destroyed .In this incident they were able to provide the materials for the occupants to rebuild a home , but owing to the obvious distress of all involved I won't publish further details or photos .
Just two recent examples of how the money from the fund raising Mango Fair and other events, all contributed by the general public is used to benefit other not so fortunate , in the area .
Maybe I should just explain, I use the pronoun "we" above but I am not actually a member of the Red Cross but as my wife is Gen Sec of the Non Wau So branch, I cannot but help get involved in the work she does , and are pleased to do so .

Just a couple of snippets this week, one good the other not so . First the good news , a PTT petrol station is being constructed just before entering NWS coming from Nong Wai, it's going to big quite a big one and will have all the associated services available, Amazon Coffee and 7 eleven included, construction already started. The other item not so good. You may remember I recently posted photos of a new large jungle market opening on the main Nong Bua-Udon road, just past the old existing one, well just when it was due to open a mysterious fire destroyed all the stalls which all had the straw thatch roofs, the cause is not known but local talk is arson, as it would obviously had affected the existing site .

Very heartwarming story Val , well done your missus (and you) plus all the Red Cross volunteers involved , great idea to get these people properly housed and as self sufficient as possible ... just a thought it might be an idea for one of them to have the "snip" so no more babies add to their burden .. proper *** education within the national curiculum is sadly lacking here , creating larger than planned families , teenage mums fatherless kids and kids dumped with grand parents is the norm .. JUST A THOUGHT .

One of the problems with that Jon is that a lot of Thais , unlike us, don't consider the cost of bringing kids up but instead regard them as a source of income for their old age .Personally I don't like the thought of imposing any means of birth control based on education or financial status of the parents although I agree with your sentiments.
