"Don" is a (former) fighter and Muay Thai (Thai-Box) teacher living in Thailand. Originally he is from the Ranong area but now is working in Phuket. His wife and daughter are living alone in a village near Khura Buri hunderts of km apart.
Their village was heavily impacted by the Tsunami in 2004 and there has not been enough economic activity every since, so that he could not find a work in his hometown.
Now he is working in Phuket but because of the high price level, Don can not afford to bring his family to live with him in Phuket. His plan is to saved enough money to build a home in his village and lives of fishing and basic farming. But for this to become reality he initially needs initial funding.
We are therefore raising money to help him to make his dream become a reality more quick. And that the family can stay together.
Below some pictures to make you better understand the situation.
1. Family first. The time the family can spend together is short an precious. Everybody enjoy this moments.
NOTE: His little daughter got born with 6 fingers and 6 toes on each hand and feet. She is brave and lives fine with this, however, this situation requires extra care and financial effort to prevent injury and infections.
2. The bubonic plague. In 2017 Don got infected with the bubonic plague this spring. Due to the serious nature of the disease medical treatment was necessary. The medical cost and loss of money (because Don could not work for the time of the recovery) put more pressure on the financial situation of the family.
If you like to support Don and his family you are more than welcome. If you got the chance to visite beautiful Thailand Don will be happy to welcome you in his house and show you some authentic Thai lifestyle. Also you will have the chance to see his little daughter being happy smiling. :)
Any help would be much appreciated!
