Chumpol is an adorable little boy. His father passed away tragically from a car accident before Chumpol was born. His mother works as a caregiver. She has a 6th grade education, but could not continue in school. She also cares for her mother. Chumpol does not have any siblings. He enjoys speaking Thai and would like to become a soldier one day. Thank you for choosing to offer this young boy hope for the future and for touching his life for Christ. At the childcare center, he will receive nutritious food and a good education. He will learn God’s Word taught by a loving staff. May the Lord bless you for your kindness.
The Mercy Hostel is a sanctuary for many poor children in Thailand. The hostel provides housing with running water and electricity. School supplies are also provided for the children. Three nutritious meals are served every day. Children with medical needs are given medical treatment. Children also hear the Gospel multiple times throughout the week from the staff. The hostel also partners with a local church for Sunday School and other activities that take place at the church.
Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country, and many people also believe in the spiritual realm. Children from poor families go to state-run schools where teaching is sub-standard. Their parents normally have little education and cannot be relied upon to help them. School children seldom reach the ninth grade and most end up working in family farms. Since the people have very low or no education, they lack basic knowledge of life skills like personal hygiene, household management, family planning and balancing budgets.
