I met with my sponsor child in late May in Wiang Pa Pao. By far the most memorable part of my trip to Thailand.
I arrived a day after the Bangkok clearance and the curfew was in place. Hence Chiang Mai was very quiet.
With the help of a great driver and tour guide through All Thai Experiences I was able to make a dream reality. My very knowledgeable guide was able to translate for me and give me an insight to Thaialnd culture I wouldn't have known.
The school which my child attends was off the track a little and took some finding. but once there I was so happy to see what I was doing to help this little girl and hopefully her family too, by breaking the poverty cycle.
I was taken to a hill tribe village one like where my sponsor child lived, I couldnt' get to her actual village because of bad roads. No running water or electricity. So much we take for granted, like having a bathroom and hot water.
Very lucky that I can visit whenever I want through this mission, St Veronica Welfare. Org. Australia
I will be now trying very hard to get over and see her on a yearly basis.
