CAMBODIA AND THAILAND 2013/2014

In Thailand I ventured up to an orphanage, Baan Saan Rak (House of Love), which was my primary reason for my trip overseas. I have had an urge for as long as I can remember to offer whatever assistance I can to those less fortunate than me. When I set foot in the Orphanage, which was run by Jit, I was overwhelmed with the love and joy the children could bring me and the bond we immediately struck. While there I donated my time as a professional hairdresser and gave everyone involved with the orphanage including the children a free haircut and style. A few additional free samples, such as, scissors and combs that I had collected from the store were also donated. Upon my departure from the orphanage I presented Jit who runs the orphanage, an envelope containing  $150 AUD. This sum was generated by my kind and loyal customers who were touched upon hearing that I was volunteering my time over my Christmas break. Jit was very moved by my presentation of this small token donation. I can only hope that this saintly woman puts some of the funds to some small luxuries for herself as she has sacrificed so much for the children that she cares for.

My time at the orphanage was not long enough and I plan in the not so distance future to return there and assist in whichever other ways I can
