LWC children learning center

Excess number of Burmese migrant workers flow into Thailand hoping to have better lives. Some portion of these people end up at various wholesale markets and one of this is called "Talad Suchard market". It's located approximately 50 km outskirt Bangkok. As LWC volunteers conduct health trainings as well as providing health assistance, we find that many children at age between 4-10 years are quite a number at this place and seize this opportunity to provide small learning center; much like nursery for the children while parents are at work.
LWC just started this recently and we see improvements in children gradually in both academic and attitude. Our aim is to provide our new generation with good education in preparation of bright future for the children. Moreover, we also provide health trainings to parents and training them the importance of education.

LWC Christmas Activities

Another successful year 2010 for LWC as we have opportunity to provide assistance and Christmas presents for the Burmese migrant children at Thai-Burma border town Mae Sod. As we visited different villages to celebrate Christmas together with (Burmese migrant workers) seasonal workers, we had a chance to share the love of God and chance to participate activities with them.

It was such a precious moments spending time with the migrant workers and children during this time of giving. The group was made up of people from different religion beckground. Majority of them are Buddhists.
At this time of Christmas season, we do feel the love and joy of giving among the people. LWC would like to thank all donors who have dedicated hearts for the least. The joy we share with the people is unmeasurable and the smile we received in return is amazing.

Donation at Thai-Burma border

A number of Burmese migrant workers living along Thai-Burma border and in Bangkok are struggling for the livelihood in their own ways. The continual economic downturn caused many young Burmese migrants to migrate from one place to another for their survival. These people have various needs such as health access information, clothing, food supplies and migrant rights information. Many are not aware of migrant rights and often exploited by employers. As LWC volunteers make regular home visits, exploitations are the most common among the Burmese migrants living in Bangkok. LWC main objective is to provide HIV awareness trainings in local Burmese migrants community, distribute partial necessities and to show the love of God. We collect all clothings and dried food supplies from Fr. Martin who has always been there for the Burmese migrants.
LWC team pack up all donations in our truck and donate to Burmese migrant workers living in isolated areas. We usually make donation trips once in 3-4 months period. Each time, we travel to different places to distribute donations for the needy. Lives of Burmese migrants are truely not an easy journey since majority of them are daily wages workers. It is an opportunity to serve the Lord by taking care of the least as possible as we can. Our team regard this ministry as a priviledge and we will try to make the difference in our people's lives so that one day, they may see the love of our Heavenly Father.

2009Christmas Celebration

Burmese Migrant Children....

Kanchanaburi, a place wellknown for its inheritance the bridge over River Kwai located is one region where a number of Burmese migrants are abiding in the community. The group of people LWC working with is migrant workers struggling for their survival in Thailand at different works which are dirty, difficult and dangerous. Their children are not able to attend local Thai government schools because parents are unable to afford for the educational expenses.
LWC believes that education is one major essential for these children's future because this may reduce the risk of becoming victims of trafficking and exploitation. LWC shows the love of God by providing basic educational supports and lunch meal for the children at Fr. Martin School. Fr. Martin is one respectful person, dedicating himself for the Burmese migrant workers who are in need. In December 2009, we brought presents for all the children at Fr. Martin School and another one located at Mahachai. Thanks to Giving Tree! The children are very excited with their wonderful presents they received in Christmas. We show the love of God in this special season so that they may come to know the true meaning of Christmas...
