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...
