Kids all over the world react strongly to anyone attempting to change their appearance.  For better or worse, positively or negatively, getting a haircut can be a life altering experience, or so it seems until you’re into your upper teens.

Pattaya’s Mercy Center children are no different.  Loved, wanted, orphaned, rich, abused, poor, abandoned, misused – it’s all the same when you’re in the chair… like Marmite or Vegemite, you either love it or hate it!

This week, Jutamat Beauty School students went to the Mercy Center’s new “Baan Khong Por” Children’s Home in Pong district of Pattaya.  They donated their time and skills to style new hair fashions for all the Mercy Family.

Loi, head of Jutamat Beauty School in Soi 16, Pattaya South, also donated nearly 700 baht to help with the cost of continuing construction at Mercy Center’s “forever” home for the 20 children in their care; and the 30 more high risk youngsters who will be joining the Mercy Family over the next months.

The official opening of Baan Khong Por and celebration of Mercy’s past and future decades of care for Pattaya’s most needy is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday 25 September.

In addition to the Mercy Children’s Home, the Mercy/Pattaya Street Kids scholarship initiative provides funding to enable over 220 students to attend school and the slum support project provides basic foodstuffs and essentials for seventy families in Pattaya’s poorest areas.
