When one child gets sick, that illness can quickly spread through a school. You’ve probably experienced this yourself and know exactly what we’re talking about. In our project school in Chiang Ri province such a situation is particularly problematic. The children who attend this school do not have the means to go to a doctor and that makes it very important to stop the spread of sickness as quickly as possible.
This is why one of our upcoming projects is to build a “sick room” for the school in Chiang Ri. This would allow ill children to recover in a safe and comfortable environment while preventing the illness from spreading. While it seems like a little step, it will actually make a large difference in the lives and health of the poor and disadvantaged youth of Chiang Ri.
