Thai-Hong Kong Trade Association visited The Providence Foundation of Thailand in Chiang Rai (Chiang Saen) for a Second-hand Computer Donation

On 1 July 2022, the Thai-Hong Kong Trade Association including President Khun Jose Lai, Secretary-General Khun Eunice Tse, Chairman of the Charity Committee Khun Alex Hung and the association Advisor Dr. Charles Cheung, represented the Association to donate more than 30 sets of used computers generously sponsored by JADS Comm, an ordinary member of the association, to a girls’ boarding house founded by The Providence Foundation of Thailand in Chiang Rai (Chiang Sean). The computer sets donated will enhance the facility of the boarding house and will improve the learning experience of the girls there.

The Providence Foundation of Thailand is a non-profit making organization established by a group of kind-hearted Sisters, and they aim to support a group of helpless, homeless or parentless hill tribe girls in Northern Thailand, most of these girls suffered from lack of proper care or no parents (or daughters of refugees from Myanmar). The Sisters shared they were heart-broken when they witnessed the experiences and living conditions of the girls in the hill tribes, and the only thing they can do was to help them out of despair and bring them back to the boarding house at Chiang Sean, providing them with a safe and supportive shelter at no charge. The boarding house is a place where the girls can receive motherly physical and mental care, including full-day boarding, day care, meals, life protection and education. Due to physical and financial limitations, the Providence Foundation of Thailand can only support girls at their boarding house. The Foundation hopes to help the girls to improve their economic abilities and protect them from the crisis of human trafficking by raising them into an educated and healthy person, to shelter them from danger, and apart from going to school, the Foundation will equip them with other skills for survival and household works, so that they can take care of themselves and their families in the future, as well as to serve the society.

In this donation event, the representatives of the Association had an in-depth exchanges with the Sisters of the Foundation to know about their mission, and there was an opportunity to interact with girls in the house. During the experience, girls had prepared 2 songs to thank the Association for their visit and donation. The angelic singing had touched everyone’s hearts and the representatives of the Association were glad to witness the peace of mind and the healthy bright smile on the girls hats off to the persistence and efforts of the Sisters over all these years, as well as the kind support from different people to the foundation in terms of financial and material resources. The representatives of the Association felt very fortunate to be able to visit the boarding house in person, to learn about the mission, operations and difficulties that the Sisters of the Foundation had overcame, and the Association would like to express our admirations and gratitude to the unfailing efforts the Sisters and the Foundation had done in Chiang Sean for the girls.

If member of friend of the Association would love to know more about the mission of The Providence Foundation of Thailand, or is interested in making a donation to the Foundation, please feel free to contact the Thai-Hong Kong Trade Association for further information. We believe shared joy is double joy, and please help the unprivileged ones if you can.
