Context 2019

The year ahead with the Good Shepherd Sister Phuket will develop and expand into three key projects

 Project 1 – The Promotion of Ant-Human Trafficking and Human Rights protection in Phuket

This project will provide a mobile centre which will provide Life skills and Health care through the establishment of a library the provision of counselling and therapy services and training in the law,

Project 2 – Child Protection

Many children of Myanmese construction workers live in poor conditions in construction camps with no running water and little supervision. The Good Shepherd Order working with volunteers over the past five years established a literacy centre for some 250 children with 10 staff which ensures they can speak Thai and are able to sit tests making them eligible for entry into Thai and Burmese Schools. Health and Well Being in a sustainable environment is essential to learning and the centre provides clean drinking water, safe sanitation, nutritious meals, regular health and dental checks and will introduce a water safety program to ensure children can swim which is a major cause of child deaths in Thailand. The St Euphrasia Banya Literacy Centre is totally funded by the generous donations of the local and international community

Good Shepherd provides temporary accommodation including medical costs transportation, food counselling and therapy in Kathu for women seeking emergency accommodation and particularly those who are pregnant
