Charity Trip Part 2 – Baan Gerda goes Paper Ranger and plus!!

  • Jun 16, 2013 · 6:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members



Visit the organization's website: http://www.baangerda.org

Baan Gerda is a children's charity that provides homes and care for HIV infected and affected orphans. The small community is based in Lopburi province in Thailand. Unlike a state orphanage, BaanGerda has a unique family environment with foster parents looking after the children and their daily needs. A medical team is on hand to ensure that they receive the best treatment and medicine.

YES we're going back for another great day to spend with the children, play games and other activities to entertain them, but this time with a touch of art as the orphans will show-off their best to draw on recycled notebooks made by us to support Paper Ranger!!  Join me again in this very special day where we can share a valued time of fun, laughter and joy with the less fortunate by making them feel that they are not alone battling their fate.

Participation Cost: Baht 1,000

- Van transport (Bangkok-Lopburi-Bangkok)
- Meals for the volunteers and children
- Gifts for the caretakers, coordinators
- Miscellaneous like crayons, colored markers, candies, and prizes for the games


NOTE: Please advise if you're a vegetarian.

I will appreciate your coordination with me on this event and I will update anyone from time to time as the day draws near.
