PKGen Asia Charity Work - Bangkok
Tue, 2012-09-04 22:30
This week saw our Asian branch running a day of workshops for Bangkok's amazing Mercy Centre, an organisation that provides essentially free schooling for the slum children of Bangkok. We are constantly stunned by the work of the Mercy Centre, and were thrilled to get the chance to spend a day with the awesome young children of the Khlong Toey centre.
Dom, Stephane and Chris of PKGen Asia ran the workshops, which the kids threw themselves into with enthusiasm and courage and great energy, and with huge smiles all round.
It's worth taking a moment to look at the work of the Mercy Centre, with it's mission being
"to help the children and communities of the many slums of Bangkok. Together with our neighbors in the slums we create simple-but-progressive solutions that touch the lives of thousands of the poor every day. We build and operate schools, improve family health and welfare, protect street children’s rights, combat the AIDS crisis, respond to daily emergencies, and offer shelter to orphans, to street children, and to children and adults with AIDS – always together, hand in hand and heart to heart with the people we serve."
