Family Day!

Every year we have a day we call “Family Day” where the girls’ family members can come visit. They come to see how their daughter/niece/granddaughter is doing at Baan Phak Phing. They get to see what life here looks like and get to know the staff and other girls. There is also an opportunity for them to ask questions and eat together. It is always a very good day.

Why have a Family Day?

The girls who live at Baan Phak Phing do not have a safe home situation. Their families cannot provide the required safety due to the circumstances they reside in. This is horrible but the family is thankful that at Baan Phak Phing there is a safe place for their daughter/niece/granddaughter to live. We believe that family relationships are very important for the girls’ wellbeing which is why we have these Family Days and are always open for contact with the family. During the summer break the staff also spend many hours on the road taking the girls to visit relatives.

For some girls this day is very hard because they do not have a family or they are unable to come. This reality is very difficult and hard to accept sometimes. This is why we try to make it a fun day for everyone by watching a movie, doing crafts, or going somewhere fun. This year we can look back on a successful day.
