Christmas is just around the corner, and here in Sangkhlaburi is getting very cold – at least for our tropical standards! In the mornings, the temperature goes as low as 15°C (59°F)!
Yet this weather doesn’t make our hearts colder!
As 2019 comes to a close, everyone here at Baan Unrak Children’s Home is feeling the joyous anticipation of the approaching holiday season. Christmas and New Years are a very special time for all of us, and we want to extend the warmest of wishes for a lovely holiday season and a very happy New Year to everyone!

During this season of giving, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU! to all the individuals who have supported and contributed to Baan Unrak throughout the year. Every donation helps secure a better life for over 130 children. To all our donors, while you are reading this article, know that children will wake up in a safe home, eat nutritious food, and obtain an education because of YOUR choices.
is going to be a very busy and exciting time for everyone at Baan Unrak. Thanks to the incredible generosity and vision of several donors, some very large scale projects are coming to fruition in the very near future. The construction of our new greenhouse is almost complete. Once this important addition is up and running everyone will be able to benefit from the abundance of nutritious and delicious fresh fruits and vegetables that will be cultivated right here at Baan Unrak.
Additionally, we are excited to share with everyone that the dream of constructing our guest house and yoga retreat center in our town of Sangkhlaburi, Thailand is moving from the planning stages to actually breaking ground on this amazing venture. Creating and maintaining a stable, local income stream for our home and providing employment opportunities to the single mothers and the older children of Baan Unrak are important principles for us. Along with the weaving cooperative and our vegetarian bakery, the guest house and yoga retreat center will allow our vision to continue well into the future.
Amazingly, 2020 will also mark the 30th year that Baan Unrak has been providing a safe, stable home and the hope for a better life for many children who have no where else to turn. From unimaginable beginnings of having no family, an unsafe home environment, or a serious childhood illness, many of the children who have called Baan Unrak their home have grown up to attend university, become private business owners, and start families of their own. None of these success stories would be a reality without the support of someone just like you. And with the continuing support of generous and thoughtful donors, the future for the children of Baan Unrak will continue to be bright and long lived.
Thank you all again for your support, compassion, and love. Without you this simply could not work, and with you the amazing is possible!
Happy holidays and a LOVE filled New Year to all!
