President Martin Cooke of the Rotary Club Eastern Seaboard together with Past President Carl Dyson and Joy Keolaphoumy visited the Human Help Network Foundation (Thailand) in Pattaya recently to donate 6400 protective face masks.

The collected face masks and hundreds of relief bags were later distributed to migrant workers and their families at their residential camps because during the COVID-19 pandemic their children are not able to attend school at the ASEAN Education Center School under the care of the HHN.

The HHN Foundation Thailand is an NGO registered under Thai law, promoting sustainable human, social and economic development.

Together those projects provide help, a home, an education and a future for almost 300 ill, orphaned, or disabled children and street children in Thailand. Their outreach work in the streets of Pattaya touches hundreds more.

Together with partners, HHNFT focuses on raising general awareness concerning global questions of development based on human justice and respect for the environment. They also promote voluntary work as a global learning experience and expression of personal commitment for a better world.
