Taking care of disadvantaged children Model Learning Center for Handicapped and Disadvantaged Children, Mae Hong Son Province
“The village that we’re going to visit is called Doi Liam and is located in Maemo sub-district, Maesareang district. There aren’t that many households there. Most of the people there are related and are from the Karen hill tribe. We walk like this every day no matter if it’s rain or shine. Nobody goes there. If we don’t go then, nobody will. There would be nobody to take care of the children,” says Jongjit Chaiwong or “Ms. Toy”
A QLF team made a two-day visit to Mae Hong Son, the most remote and poorest province in Thailand, to visit the QLF-supported centre for disadvantaged children in a remote and mountainous area of Mae Sariang district.
