Milk needed for tsunami kids

PHANG NGA: A charity daycare center in Bang Muang has appealed for donations of milk for small children.

The “Nice Care Center” behind the Tambon Administration Organization in Baan Bang Muang, near Baan Nam Kem, is run by the Duang Pratheep Foundation in Bangkok.

Coordinator Rojana Phraesrithong explained that the daycare center looks after more than 150 children as their parents struggle to make a living. Some children stay overnight and at weekends if both parents are out fishing.

K. Rojana explained that, immediately after December’s disaster, many people donated milk and other necessities but now, with fewer people visiting the camp, supplies are running low.

“The center has more than 150 children, aged from three to 18 years old. The little ones need pasteurized, sterilized or powdered milk,” she said.

Anyone wishing to donate milk should contact K. Rojana at Tel: 09-8941738.
