It has now been 25 Years since Father Giovani Contarin officially opened The Camillian Social Center Rayong. 

In those years this Center has saved many, many lives and prepared many Orphaned Children for a productive life in Thai Society. 

In normal time I have no doubt that we would be celebrating this milestone by inviting all of our very many generous benefactors who have made this possible to a party, so all of us here at The Camillian Social Center Rayong take this opportunity to Thank You All So Very, Very Much for all that you have given to our mutual-cause over these many years.

However, we are not in a time that can in anyway be described as normal.

In these times only the Thai workforce their families are allowed to enter the Center.

Covid-19 is Raging World Wide

Particularly in my home country of England.

Here in Thailand we have managed to keep it under very strict control since last April with almost no new local cases.

Unfortunately at the beginning of this year that all changed and we are now in the middle of our second wave of infections.

This being the case The Camillian Social Center Rayong is very much locked down with no one except the Thai Work Force being allowed in or out. 

The Children have not returned to school this year. Because of this we have been looking for new ways to keep them fit and healthy.

Father Joey has come up with the idea of a basketball practice area.

As you can see from the pictures below. We are asking for your help as regards, Concrete, Balls and the Basketball Stand.

Tuffty  doesnít have a sponsor yet, would you like to be her sponsor?

Recently we have accepted responsibility for a new child, her name is Aomsin or as I nicknamed her more or less the first time I meet her Tuffty. Her mother was patent here at the time and she became involved with one of our male nurses and the result is Tuffty.  

I called her Tuffty because of the little spikes of baby hair that where springing from her head at the time. 

Now I have watched her grow up since almost birth and I know that she is a very smart little girl. At the age of about three she was watching me test myself for blood sugar, I retrieved my book from the draw did the test and wrote up the findings. At which time Tuffty took the book and put it back in the drawer but not just on top, like I would of myself. She lifted the other books and put it back exactly where it had been when I came to it. Until the end of the current semester Tuffty had been lucky enough to attend The St, Joseph Catholic School in Rayong. Although I pretty much hate the idea of religion in school, this school is the best academically that are children have a chance of attending. Father Joey our Director told me yesterday that she could no longer continue her studies there as the school is very strict.

His email address is Wutthichai Boonbanlu michelejoe_2528@hotmail.com if you would like to ask him about this.

Unfortunately recently her father has become very ill and canít care for himself and her mother has taken her self off somewhere not being able to cope with her own life situation.

Heng & Horn are brother and sister, they both arrived to stay with us on the 29th of April 2020. They were born in Satthaheab Hospital in Chonburi Province which is approximately 30 kilometers from The Camillian Social Center Rayong.

Both of them are HIV Negative. Heng the young boy is 9 years old and his younger sister Horn is just 7.

In 2012 their father sight began to fail as a result of an infection brought on because of his HIV infection. This brought on his dismissal from his work as a Truck Driver. At which time their mother was the sole wage earner. She worked very hard at 3 jobs to provide for the whole family until 2018 when she was killed as a result of a Motorcycle accident.

Fortunately, at that time their fatherís sister was able to help care for the children until such time as the land that they lived on was claimed by the Thai Government for road improvement.

So the whole family became homeless, seeing their plight the head man of the village contacted us and asked for help. The two children are now cared for in our child care project and live with all our other young ones, and their father stays in our Palliative Care Unit. Both children are well but Heng suffers for a hard Tongue which impairs his speech and gives him a tendency to drool.  

Both children are happy and well and very much looking forward to school when they re-open, hopefully in July.

So, the question are things returning to normal in Thailand?

My personal opinion is that it will be a very long time till we see the normal that we all once had if ever. 

Anyway, on the 6th of March 2021 our younger kids spent their first day out in over a year at the beach.

The weather is getting warmer now but I bet that water was still a lot colder that I like it. Never the less I am sure that they all had a great day.

A mini day out in Pattaya for our children that remain at home in the Camillian Social Center Rayong each day while the rest are at local school.  

Top Left Photo : We have Ben 2, Nue 2, Ben, and not least Tip. Ben 2 arrived at the center in June 2010, so it will be at least May 2011 before we can think about sending him to school. This depends on how well he is at that time. Nue 2 arrived at the center in early 2010 and was very sickly at that time having to be wheeled around the center in a wheel chair. I am very glad to say that her condition has improved a great deal since then. Like wise with Ben when he arrived he could not eat and spent a month in the Palliative Care Unit and again is now doing very well. Tip was here when I arrived at the center in 2006 and was extremely unwell with her lungs. Only in the last year has she really begun to pick up and you see her running around with the other children today.
