Hand to Hand celebrates Children’s Day

Wednesday, 19 January 2011 From Issue Vol. XIX No. 3

The children at the Hand to Hand Center in Pattaya had a fantastic children’s day thanks to plenty of food, games and presents.

The Brotherhood, a group of bikers, generously provided lunch and the children proceeded to munch their way through an amazing 150 hot dogs!

Thanks to the Brotherhood there were also presents for everyone including bicycles, clothing and toys. Games included an egg and spoon race and musical plates, while the face painting was a big hit with some colorful faces making the day even brighter.

The Hand to Hand Center provides care for underprivileged children. Set up by Margaret Grainger, it offers two types of community service: one involves visiting prisoners and supplying them with food, the other is a preschool by day and an activities/drop in center in the afternoons and evenings.

Children come mainly from the Thepprasit area and from low-cost housing around Duck Square in Pattaya.
