Orphanage for kids living with hiv/aids

There are two types of volunteer experience available here at the Camillian Social Center Rayong. The first being the opportunity to work in the open air at our Garden of Eden. The second being the opportunity to work with the terminally ill patents in our Palliative Care Unit. See below for details. A minimum of one month stay is required for both.

Anybody applying to volunteer with us must carry a valid health insurance policy or be prepared to purchase a health insurance policy on arrival. This is very strict and we will require proof on arrival. Private health care in Thailand is very good but expensive.

At our Garden of Eden the work in the field begins early at first light which in the part of the world comes at approximately 5:30am,. Most of the patents there have recovered from our Palliative Care Unit and have to grow the crops to support themselves. You can help them. Click on the photo on the left to see the whole project.

The Palliative Care Unit cares for over 50 patents in various stages of the decease. Here is a letter that was penned by an Australian nurse that spent three months with us a few years ago. Click on the photo on the left to see the whole project.  

Form letter for prospective volunteers

Thank you for expressing an interest in volunteering at the Camillian Social Centre. As you are already aware, we are an integrated centre concerned with both treating and preventing HIV/AIDS. This encompasses the orphanage, a palliative care unit, a sponsorship program to enable local children to attend school, an independent living centre for older teenagers, a prevention centre and the Eastern region HIV/AIDS network.  At present we require skilled volunteers for the Palliative Care Unit. 

The Palliative Care unit is a 32 bed unit located at the main centre near Rayong. It consists of four wards – a nine bed ward for patients needing more intensive care; a 14 bed ward for those who have physical or mental limitations and/or require a medium level of care and two four bed dorms for patients who are primarily self caring and are preparing for return to society. The Unit is run by a Supervisor under the direction of a Registered Nurse. The supervisor was previously a patient at the centre and has trained as a caregiver and in managerial responsibilities. He is in charge of the day to day running of the unit. There are also 10 caregivers, also previous patients. All caregivers are trained in basic nursing care. 

The role of the volunteer at the PCU consists of basic nursing care, including but not limited to – assisting with meals, bed making, assisting with toileting, massaging and wound care. You are also welcome to discuss the use of any other skills you may have, such as art therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, occupational therapy or physiotherapy. You will be expected to accompany the patients on various weekly activities. In the past these have varied from beach excursions to karaoke. You will also be expected to welcome any visitors to the centre, and assist with tours given especially if you share a common language.

Volunteering at the Palliative Care Unit is not a holiday, but an opportunity to gain hands on experience in caring for people with HIV/AIDS, as well as forming valuable relationships with the people themselves. You’re contribution will be valued by the Camillian community and you will leave knowing you have made a difference in the lives of those who live here.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us.
