Phuket child protection agency seeks donations

Published

 on 

PHUKET CITY: The Phuket Juvenile Observation and Protection Center is accepting donations of second-hand goods to sell as part of its ‘Share our love with Children’ charity project set to take place at the annual Red Cross Fair over the New Year’s holiday period this year.

The 2009 Red Cross Fair will take place at Saphan Hin for 10 days, starting on December 26.

A house will be the this year’s top prize in the annual auction.

The Juvenile Observation and Protection Center’s goal is to educate and rehabilitate youths who run afoul of the law, giving them a chance to successfully reintegrate into society and lead normal lives.

Center director Sukporn Udomsin said the center, located near Phuket Polytechnic College at Saphan Hin, is currently home to 60 youngsters.

There are also 400 more teens at the larger regional center in Surat Thani.

“Our budget isn’t really enough to look after them all,” she said.

In addition to the second-hand goods sale, the center is also accepting cash donations to help buy the food needed to improve the teen’s diets.

Roughly translated, the initiative is known as the “Children Full of Food, Adults Full of Merit’ project.
