BAAN DEK FOUNDATION

The Baan Dek Foundation works to improve the fundamental wellbeing of all vulnerable children living in Thailand, in particular those whose parents work in construction site camps. We supported the foundation during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure these families remain healthy, safe and able to access healthcare services.

CHALLENGE

10,000 children live in crowded construction camps and urban slums in Thailand.

Left unattended while their parents are at work, they are vulnerable to neglect, abuse and exploitation. They do not go to school and have very limited access to essential services.

ACTION

The Baan Dek Foundation assists people living in construction camps and urban slums in Chiang Mai and Bangkok.

During the pandemic, the foundation provided vulnerable families with hygiene products, cleaning supplies, food rations and housing support (rent and utility bills).

The foundation also organised regular public sessions to help ensure the population knows how to keep healthy.

IMPACT

In 2020 alone, Baan Dek Foundation delivered over 10,200 food rations and more than 8,600 hygiene kits to vulnerable families. Between September 2021 and February 2022, some 4,000 additional food packages and over 5,800 hygiene and sanitation packages were delivered, benefitting 2,384 children.
