For 15 children in Thailand, The Prachinburi Church foster home supplies more than just food, shelter and medical care, it provides the love of a family. Through counseling, education and spiritual leadership, these children have the opportunity to escape the life of poverty, drugs and prostitution that most Thai orphans face.
With 1,300,000 orphaned children in Thailand, the government is unable to care for them all leaving many vulnerable to abuse.
Though the situation seems hopeless, The Prachinburi Church is making a difference.
The congregation and Pastor Chalermchai Chaisombat have been running a Compassion International project for many years and provided food and clothing to orphaned children in their community.
But the need was so great that they did more; they took in several children to live in a home next to their church.
World Orphans is currently providing funding to the home, but a U.S. church partner or advocacy group is still needed to support this ministry.
