Dear Supporters and friends,
We are gearing up for a road trip. 1800 kilometers in 5 days. Bangkok to Chiang Mai, from there to the jungle village Baan Mae Gon. From Baan Mae Gon to the school of Baan Huai Krataai. From there back via Mae Sot to the urban jungles of Bangkok!
I am looking forward to it! And so are all volunteers as we are all running around and taking care of the final details.
Here are a few photos, from bottom to top you see some of the shopping Scott and I did at Macro's, a yearly event and always fun. Just the usual stuff, cooking material, dried food, protein, pots and pans, garbage bins to try to teach the kids to keep the place clean, and more.
A photo of donated blankets by two kind Thai ladies. There is a little gift from me and a few friends and that will be a small fireworks show; never been seen in the jungle. Do not worry, the photo is in the firework shop, that is not our collection haha. I can just imagine the amazement in those little eyes.
Most of the equipment is already on location. We have heard from the director of the school that the building of the dormitory has been going smoothly. The floors should be done when we arrive. We will help finishing it in the next few days.
A lorry with donated mattresses, blankets, rice, sanitary towels, two brand new sinks and much more is on its way to Baan Mae Gon as well. And so will be the playground for the young kids, that will arrive with us on the 12th of January.
The Kharma Foundation is on the road again! Thanks to you :)
So a big thank you and I will write to you upon return!
Martin and all volunteers
