A few small buildings were erected with help from the children were soon followed by a kitchen, sala, offices, toilets, meeting hall, and more accommodation units. Vegetable gardens, chicken coop, and shade trees soon appeared to give the property a real rural feel.
Some of the children pose for a commemorative photo in the garden.
The center now houses 35 children (27 boys and 8 girls) with 4 staff to care for them. Additional land has been acquired recently with plans for still more accommodation and amenities. This has been a wonderful achievement in a short time span and the credit goes to Khun Ja and his kids, who do most of the construction after school and on weekends.
A recent visit by Woody and me, both from the Jesters Care for Kids, noticed that one basic necessity was missing: clean drinking water. A chat with Ja, a phone call to Bank of ETPC [water filtration specialists], a donation from Jesters, and just like that the problem was solved. The Center now has a modern water filtering system to supply as much clean drinking water as they will ever require.
