British Ambassador Brian Davidson visited three Human Help Network Thailand facilities as the U.K. considers contributing to the charity.

HHN Director Radchada Chomjinda welcomed the ambassador to the Drop-In Center and ASEAN Education Center Aug. 3, with children giving him a boisterous greeting.

H.E. Davidson’s delegation observed living conditions and the foundation’s work in helping children of migrant construction workers with transport to 80 sites around the area, food and education in Thai, Burmese and English. Too often the children would be left alone while their parents work.

Self-protection is taught with question cards and modeling conversations with strangers to teach children to learn how to avoid exploitation.

Following the tour, the kids performed some ethnic dances for the guests.

Davidson then proceeded to the Pattaya Orphanage where he was greeted by Director Rev. Weera Pangrak. There he took a similar tour and saw how the orphanage cares for its 100 newborns, autistic, special-needs, speech-impaired and deaf children.

Davidson said the information gathered will be used in developing a charitable-giving program at the embassy.
