Care for Orphans Living with HIV/AIDS and Disabilities

Camillian Home is a registered non-profit children's charity operating on behalf of the St. Camillus Foundation of Thailand in the area of Lat Krabang, Bangkok.

The founder and director is Father Giovanni Contarin, an Italian priest, who began his work in Thailand with HIV/AIDS children in 1995 by establishing the
Camillian Social Center Rayong. The center is unique in its concept in that it addresses the issue of HIV/AIDS with a series of integrated activities. All the children are brought up in a family setting, having access to care and Anti Retro Viral medication and can look forward to a bright future.

After all the years of working with HIV/AIDS children, Fr. Giovanni proposed a new  project in Thailand after a  pair of Italian benefactors left an endowment to the St Camillus Foundation. Since we  already had five HIV/Disabled orphaned children  living with us at Camillian Social Center Rayong  Fr. Giovanni decided to use these funds to assist with  the construction of Camillian Home ; a new project targeting children who are not only living with HIV/AIDS but are also disabled. A special facility designed to allow each child and to receive specialized care and treatment, in an environment that encourages and develops the capability of each child, no matter the severity of their situation. The children are stimulated mentally and physically thanks to a full time staff of caretakers, physical therapists and our resident nurse.  The Camillian Home is the only facility in Thailand dedicated to caring for these children in a family atmosphere. The children know their care takers as “Ma” and “Pa”, which means mother and father in Thai. Opened in June of 2008, up to now 28 children are under the care of Camillian Home. The long term outlook is to provide direct care for up to 70 children. The Home is designed to be a model for other institutions in all aspects of helping the sick and disabled children of Thailand.

Activities and Target Group of Camillian Home

  • Orphaned Children living with HIV/AIDS who are also disabled
  • Orphaned/abandoned disabled children
  • Free day care service and transportation for disabled children living in poverty
  • Abandoned HIV/AIDS women with disabled children

FAQ: Are you a religious organization?
No, we are directed by members of a Catholic community called the "Camillians" but our children are brought up and taught values based on their own beliefs and cultural backgrounds. Everyone is free to express and follow their faith, whatever it may be.

It is not all just playing around there is serious work done at the Camillian Home Caring For Children Living With Disabilities, here is Jack working hard at his studies. Jack moved to LatKrabang when it opened from The Camillian Social Center Rayong because he has a weak left had side.

Fay was born blind and autistic in the north of Thailand and abandoned by her HIV positive parents at a local hospital. For the first 5 years of her life she was known by the hospital staff as AIDS. On the 21st of December 2006 she was taken in by the Camillian Social center in Rayon and has not look back since. The one thing she really loves to do is go swimming.

  This Video was made by Thai Television and the narration is in Thai but with sub-titles in English. It dose however give quite a good description of the work taking place at our Lat Krabang site for children living with HIV and disabilities. 

An extra two computers where provided by Mr. Norman Vernon of Bolton England in July 2010. These are specially designed and programs installed for our blind children.

An Italian Gentleman Mr. Mario who has a large very popular restaurant in  the Venice area of Italy, provided a life size bronze statue of St Camillus in 2009.

 

This video is in English language and Father Giovanni is telling very frankly how his work with the children began here at the Camillian Social Center Rayong. His work began at a time when there were no drugs available to fight the effects of HIV here in Thailand back in 1995.

 

He also tells in his own word what he had to do to begin saving the lives of these children who were dieing of AIDS related illness at that time.

 

 

  If you do not have time to watch all the other Videos make sure you watch this one it really does tell the story.
