We decided to support mosquito nets again this year as it was so popular last Christmas plus we know it is an on going need but it also helps prevent dengue fever which is so devastating.
Little Birds is such a worthwhile cause which helps those teenagers/young adults who have been brought up in orphanages but who are then turned out into the community when they are 18 with no support from family, many of whom have died from HIV/AIDS. Some of these young people have HIV but with anti retro viral drugs can lead a normal life however they still need support and encouragement and a bit of TLC.
We are requesting donations of 250 Baht towards these two wonderful projects – there is no limit! There will be a small Christmas greeting card, which can be signed, and also an e-card, which can be used to send to family and friends overseas to let them know you have donated in lieu of Christmas cards/presents.
The Christmas 2016 Appeal will be available for members to see at all BWG events (coffees and lunches) in the run up to Christmas. Your donation of 250 baht will mean so much to someone who receives so little.
