  • Description

    Description

    Our organization was founded in 2014 in the rural villages near Chiang Khong, Chai Rai district. We saw the people from our villages did not have the opportunity or the resources to go to the hospital if there was an emergency, along with other major issues within our population related to poverty.

    For this reason we work with volunteers to support and help our community with various social services. We are available if there is a medical emergency or an accident, we have a car, a basic ambulance and enough medical equipment to bring them to the hospital. We help people with funeral arrangement and we support with food and other supplies to people without relatives.
    We do our best to collect money from donations to provide scholarships for underprivileged children and bring social benefits to our community.

    What else ...

    You will be living in a village near the city of Chiang Khong in Chiang Rai province, where the beautiful Mekong River runs along. It is a quiet and relaxing city, perfect for trekking, a nice walk or biking. There are lots of hidden treasures, such as waterfalls, temples, and rice fields. Don't forget to try the local food and the fresh seafood in one of the many markets of Chiang Khong.
    We are just a few kilometers away from Laos, and you can easily visit the Golden Triangle from our house. You can spend the day in the city of Chiang Rai, famous for their stunning and magical temples, such a White Temple and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
