The 2011 SOS Rice appeal will take place over three weekends from the 18th of November to the 5th December.
The aim of the annual SOS Rice appeal is to encourage the people of Pattaya to donate rice to help feed the 850 children and students with disabilities living at the Father Ray Foundation.
However, this year the Foundation needs your help more than ever.
The flooding in Bangkok has seen many people leave their homes and make their way to Pattaya.
This young flood victim will benefit from the SOS Rice appeal.
The Father Ray Children’s Home has opened its doors to fifty children from a similar home in Nonthaburi. The Vocational School is giving shelter to ninety people living with a disability whose homes have been flooded and the Drop-In Center for Street Kids is once again providing a safe haven for children who have no other place to go.
From November the 18th to December the 5th the Father Ray Foundation is asking for your assistance to help feed the children, students with disabilities and the evacuees from Bangkok.
Over three weekends there will be volunteers and children from the Foundation stationed at many supermarkets in Pattaya.
The Foundation is asking that the next time you go shopping at Tesco Lotus, Big C, Makro, Best, Friendship, Tops, Villa Market or Foodland you will buy an extra bag of rice for the children of Pattaya and the flood victims of Bangkok.
Donations of rice, foodstuffs and cash can also be dropped off at the Father Ray Foundation Welcome Center on Sukhumvit Road, between North and Central Pattaya Roads.
Please help the victims of the floods, and remember the children of Pattaya.
Donations have already arrived, but more is needed.
Look for these friendly faces, and more like them, at collection points around town.
It is not just young people who need shelter from the floods.
Safe and dry, the young flood victims from Bangkok at the Fr. Ray Children’s Home.
