Thailand Update 6/13

Over the past couple weeks, our team has grown to seven volunteers, and we have started a more consistent schedule helping at the children’s home. On a typical morning, the Burmese children are split into three groups, and we take care of the groups that are not in class. Some of this time is spent teaching English, while the remaining time is spent doing activities with the children. In the afternoon, we spend an hour with two of the groups, often playing active games as they run off their lunchtime energy. We often stay later in the afternoon, and play games with all of the children, including the younger children who aren’t in school yet.
We have also been helping to care for some of the medical needs at the home. Currently, there is one nurse taking of the 500 children that are living there. Because of this, sick children sometimes go unnoticed and are not properly cared for. Recently, there was an outbreak of scabies, which was quite contagious due to the close proximity in which the children live and sleep. For a week, we treated the infected children, who were kept in quarantine from the rest of the home. Thankfully, that outbreak is currently under control, although not completely gone. We have also taken several sick children to the clinic and the hospital to be treated. Prayers are appreciated as we navigate how to best respond to the medical needs that arise.
