Father Ray Foundation Transforming A Poor Family’s Life

The house in North Pattaya, if it can be called a house, measures just three by three meters and is home to three young children who live with their mother. Like many homes around Pattaya where the very poor live, there is no clean running water, no electricity and no proper sanitation.

When it rains the water pours into the house as there is no roof, just an old piece of plastic sheet, dirty and ripped. The nearby stream overflows and floods the area and the children are covered in mosquito bites. When they need to go to the toilet the children use the stream or find somewhere in the nearby field. The children spend their days running and playing and having a great time, they are loved by their mother, but there is a risk of these children contracting a disease or being involved in a The shack wrapping with plastic sheets fatal accident.

This family was recently discovered by the Father Ray Foundation who immediately jumped into action to try to improve the lives of these unfortunate people.

Whilst the two older children, an eight year old boy and a five year old girl are attending local schools, the youngest child, a little two year old girl whose name is Yiin is now spending her days at the Fr. Ray Day Care Center, receiving a basic education, nutritious meals, regular health checks and by being in a safe environment she is away from the risks that can befall a child living in these poor conditions.

Whilst the little girl is being taken care of at the Fr. Ray Day Care Center, several volunteers from the Fr. Ray Foundation are transforming their little plastic shack into a bricked wall with a real roof that can protect the children from the risk of severe diseases and the toilet where the children can have their proper sanitation. A roof is being built with tiles that used to cover the old Fr. Ray Drop-In Center and which had been donated by the Pattaya International Ladies Club just three years ago.

The Father Ray Foundation helps almost 850 children and disabled students who live under the care of its various projects, and it also has a scholarship programme which assists many children who live with their families in similar poor conditions as these little children.
