Jesters Care for Kids Charity Drive 2013
Tucked away at the bottom of a small lane off Soi Kophai is a children’s care centre run by Kru Kor. Here up to 30 small children below 6 years of age are cared for daily. The parents, most of whom are casual laborers or recyclers, would be unable to go out to work without this facility. The centre struggles along with small donations from the parents and the Kophai Street committee.
Previously, the place was a small karaoke bar and unfortunately the pre-existing stained, worn carpets still remained where the toddlers were crawling, playing and sleeping.
Finished – the new floor provides a safe environment for the little ones.
This situation was brought to the attention of the Jesters Care for Kids Committee, which quickly decided that this unhygienic situation should be rectified as soon as possible by replacing the carpets with tiles.
We provided the funding of 30,000 baht and the local community the labor. Now the Centre has a brand new ceramic floor inside and out, where the kitchen and ablutions are located.
