I have been traveling to Thailand for a little while now. I have recently met a women named Mod.
After conversations with her and visiting her children and family in the isaan region of Thailand, I soon discovered that there is a common problem and that is that there are many disadvantaged Thai people with little to no work to earn a living and as a result this mean that there is not enough money to pay for dental, medical, hygiene, wholesome food and a good education. Many Thais in this region are not well educated, their children tend to have children at a very young age, the (husband or boyfriend) leaves the women with the baby/s and leaves all the responsiblities to this young women with no job and as results this is an added pressure for the whole family which is more mouths feed. Bad choices, I know, but it just seems to be the way it is in this part of Thailand unfortunately.
So what generally happens?
The family normally decides to send the oldest daughter out of the nest (not the male) at a reasonable age to make money for the whole family (in this case, Mod).
As it stands Mod (22yr old) single mother of 2 children (4 and 6yrs) is the sole provider for the family which includes mother, father, baby sister, sister, 2 children and herself. She lives away from her family, where her mother looks after her children. It broke my heart to see the conditions that they are living in, the children without much to eat and and how Mod has to earn money for her loved ones, basically without her they have no hope.
What is needed? ---- (Your help)
I am here hoping to get finacial help for Mod and her family which will include ...
⚡ Go towards childrens dental work.
⚡ Sourcing better schooling for the children in a bigger city purely for a better HOPE for the future (Mod tells me, some days she cannot afford to pay the school fees so the kids miss out).
⚡ I would like to educate and teach the family about how and where to save money (Thais are known to be not very good with money and how to use it).
⚡I would like to use this money to invest a way for the family to start making a living for themselves, weather it be making items, grow produce or buy and sell items. Mod tells me that the family used to run a dried squid buisness, but they have now stopped due to needing URGENT funds. Maybe the money could be used to invest in they again?
⚡Hopefully reunite the family and/or at least get Mod's children fulltime with her so she can raise them up as she would like.
⚡Relieve the stress and pressue off Mod
⚡New tyres to car (last I remember all tyres we're almost bold, and one burst whilst we were on a trip, now they have no spare. obviously bold tyres can be dangerous)
⚡The possibility of getting Mod a better secured job or to have a business herself?? Or to gain higher education for better future employment??
⚡Paying the family debt off. (I will get more information about this)
What I have done so far ----
⚡ Supporting her finacially until She can find sustainable work.
⚡ I have rented out an apartment so she doesnt have to pay for housing (I will be renting this for her temporarly until she finds solid income)
Why have I done this?
I believe that no girl at this age or any at that matter should be put under the pressure to provide for the whole family. It's huge.
Unfortunately my pocket is not large enough to get this family back into a better living arrangement and thats why I asking for some help.
I am asking for $5,000AU, this should cover everything that I have mentioned including the family debt.
Who I am?
I am a 35yr old single father from Sydney, Australia. I am self employed video content creator with a second casual job, I am a hobbiest Photographer and very hopeful for the future, if not hopeful what else?
Thank you so much for your time and support ❤️❤️❤️
