Childline Thailand Foundation (CTF) wish to thank the Australian- Thai Chamber of Commerce for the generous donation they made in December 2019. AustCham is one of the most active foreign chambers in Thailand. Their extensive network has been growing since 1977 and over the years the Chamber has influenced the development of two-way trade between Thailand and Australia. They also run an active community services program which contributes to a range of social and charitable programs.
The donation of 163,000 THB will be used to fund our ‘Hub’ centre for children in street situations. 55,000 THB will be used to buy a large air conditioning unit that will help to keep our facility cool during the summer. Our staff are especially grateful for this, it will be of long term benefit and more economical than our current system. The other funding raised will be used to buy 600 kg of rice, milk and baby formula, providing essential needs to young families over the course of one year.
The presentation of the cheque was conducted on 4th December during a Christmas Reception at The Ambassador’s Residence, the Australian Embassy. CTF look forward to further projects within the Australian- Thai community and we trust that AustCham will have a prosperous 2020 helping businesses and communities across the country.
