The official opening of the new Mercy Center Children’s Home (Baan Khong Por) will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 25.
They are also asking for volunteers to help with the organization of the event. Their invitation points out that it will be a celebration of a decade of “Bringing Hope to those in need” in Pattaya.
The afternoon will include live music from “We2R1” and international friends plus glorious food, courtesy of the Accor Group of Hotels and delicious New Zealand ice cream generously donated by Bourbon Natural Dairy Co Ltd.
John & Wendy Khan (center) of “We2R1” will be performing Live 60s and 70s music for the Mercy Center Children’s Home Grand Opening. Also shown are Mercy family members in front of their “Forever” Home Baan Khong Por in Pong.
The mayors of Pattaya, Nong Prue & Pong have pledged their attendance to grace this memorable occasion for a short official opening ceremony.
Mercy Center is well known for its care and protection of abused, misused, abandoned, and/or orphaned children at their Children’s Home. Mercy, too, cares for 100 poor families, delivering vital foodstuffs to the Pattaya slums every week; runs a “Single Parent Support Project”, “Care for the Poor” and the Scholarship Project which, through Pattaya Street Kids and independent sponsors, currently enables 220 students to attend school, by supplying essentials such as school fees (where necessary), books, shoes, uniforms, lunches and care.
There’s still more to the Mercy Center Pattaya, whose new offices are by Big C South, off Duck Square/Pattaya Tai, and you can find out on September 25 or by telephoning our new member, Lyndy on 088-208-1318. Official invitations will be issued and, meantime, if anyone would care to donate time, goods or currency towards the organization of the festivities, please let her know. [email protected]
