At the end of March, three families were evicted from the Khao Talo slum area as the owner wanted the land back so that he could develop it. Having nowhere to go the families came to the Hand to Hand Foundation seeking emergency help. Almost instantly Mr. Lee from the Premier Oilfield Services came forward with the offer to build rooms for these families and shortly afterwards the construction began.
Last week the families were overjoyed to move into their new homes and a sense of community is already developing. The older grandmas will help take care of the children whilst the younger mums and dads find employment with the help of Hand to hand Foundation.
We are still in need of more beds and household furniture such as cooking utensils, cups cupboards etc. If you have any used household items to donate please contact Margie at [email protected].
