PATTAYA – December 19, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; a generous monetary donation from the Austrian government was presented by the Austria ambassador to the Center of Anti-Human Trafficking and Sexually Abused Children on soi Nongmaikan 8, Banglamoong, Chonburi.

Mr. Palisorn Noja, the director of the center, received the donation from Mr. Johannes Peterlik, the ambassador of Austria to Thailand.

The idea for the monetary gift originated last July, when Mrs. Johanna Mikl-leitner, the interior minister of the Republic of Austria, had visited Pattaya and saw the dedication of center director Mr. Palisorn.

Ms. Johanna saw the important work the center was doing in helping the abused children who had been violated. The center was protecting the children so they would have a chance to grow without the use of violence and coercion.

The Austria ambassador donated a balance of 2,386,813 baht. The donated money will also be used to help children still out there, and still waiting for help to escape from human trafficking and child sexual abuse. The funds will help pay the expenses for the further development of the center to help the damaged children have better lives.

Mr. Palisorn said the center has been helping the victimized children for two years, helped by the cooperation of the Royal Thai Police and the embassy of the Republic of Austria. Many other agencies have helped as well, especially in the areas of prevention and suppression of the crimes against children.

However, he said that the children in the center still face a shortage of facilities and essentials in their daily lives, including school supplies, sports equipment and much more.

Currently, about 75 children are living in the center, which is not big enough to meet the growing demand. Part of the reason is because the center was established only two years ago with a small budget.

An example is of this austerity is the center’s home and office, which were built on the strength of the staff and children in the center with their own hands.

If anyone would like to help, it is easy to contact the Anti-Human Trafficking and Sexually Abused Children’s Center, which is opposite of Sansuk town, moo7, Nongmaikan soi 8, Nongprue, Banglamoong , Chonburi.

The numbers to call them are: 081-9499349, or 081-4111750, or fax 038-248037.
