June 2015 Archives



Over the weekend, the Father Ray Foundation together with the Redemptorist Foundation for People with Disabilities organized event called "Pattaya Cares for Nepal" from 16 - 22 May 2015 to raising fund for children, people with disabilities, and all victims in Nepal who have been affected by two large earthquakes within the last month.

Children from the Children's Home and our blind and disabled students came together for an evening of entertainment which at times brought Walking Street to a standstill. The event started with a rendition of 'We Are the World', the 1985 charity single originally performed by the likes of Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.  Traditional Thai dancers, Muay Thai fighters and the choir from the School for the Blind drew large crowds and the finale was a rendition of "Amazing Grace" by the blind students.

Earlier in the day, the young adults studying at the Redemptorist Vocational School for People with Disabilities, many of whom are living on a pension of 500 Baht per month, all made a donation and the residents of the Children's Home gave a donation from their pocket money.

Local Thais, expats and holidaymakers all dipped deep into their pockets to make a donation, and all money raised will go to help support the Nepalese children and people with disabilities affected by the recent disaster.
The event on Walking Street which was a completed success and raised a large amount of money.
All raised money will be divide into 2 ways without deduction - half of it will send to NRCD for aids and relief for people with disabilities through ChangeFusion, then ChangeFusion will transfer to NRCD Nepal.
The rest of it, ChangeFusion will support for child residence building and for other sufferers from earthquake in Nepal as well.
