In November, two ladies with their children paid us a visit. Both women lived at Baan Phak Phing when they were younger. One of them has a 3-year-old daughter, but she is going through a difficult period with her husband and asked the mothers of Baan Phak Phing for help. The fact that she has reached out to her ‘parental’ home is very encouraging to us. It means she feels safe with us, and understood. During the few days this woman stayed with us, the psychologist of our team was able to have many counseling sessions with her. We will definitely stay in touch with her, and she can always call us and ask for help.
The other woman came to us with her two children, a 1-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter. Although she has lived with us shortly, her experience has been good, and she knows she is always welcome at Baan Phak Phing. She and her family are doing very well; she came to Chiang Rai because they are moving back to the city and they are looking for a new place to live. Our staff helped her find a new house, while her husband was working with his new boss.
It is such a great gift that we can stay involved with girls who have left us a while ago already. The Baan Phak Phing family keeps growing! 😉
