Friday April 6, the PILC celebrated Easter with the children at Bang
Jing Jai, with chocolate eggs supplied from the Party Shop in Soi Town
The Pattaya International Ladies Club has been
keeping busy lately, as Ingrid writes:
On Wednesday April 4, the PILC ladies celebrated a
Songkran and Easter festival with the children from the Fountain of
Life. We enjoyed a great show by the kids and then the water pouring
ceremony began, which is always lovely.

for the PILC I>C>U project.
Then the real fun began with the paddling pool being
filled and the kids, staff and some PILC ladies going wild with the
water. After splashing about in the pool, a chocolate Easter egg hunt
was organized. The kids enjoyed the chocolate thoroughly! A great day
was had by all, and it was a great way to end the school term for these
I would like to make a special mention and a say big
thank you to Lynn, who has been volunteering her time at the Fountain of
Life since January. She is moving on and completing her travels with her
husband John, and I wish then both "choke dee" for the future.
On Friday April 6, the PILC celebrated Easter with
the children at Bang Jing Jai, with chocolate eggs supplied from the
Party Shop in Soi Town to Town.
Pintar, the head of the home, and staff also enjoyed
the eggs, which were delicious! Happy Easter from Pattaya International
Ladies Club and the Welfare Team.
Next up is the PILC I>C>U project. Dr Virod,
the 2nd optometrist participating in this project, has started with the
Fountain of Life children and already 13 children have been found
requiring glasses, with one young girl totally blind in her right eye.
Ivy Schlageter started this project with a donation
that is funding the costs of the eyewear needed. Pattaya Sports Club has
also donated towards this very worthwhile project and we thank you both.
And finally, the Pattaya International Ladies Club and the Jesters
Care for Kids have jointly purchased lockers for the Street Kids Drop in
Center boys and girls rooms. The rooms were in desperate need of these
and the kids now have a safe place for their belongings.
