WAY WE CARE FOR
Our vision is a Thailand where all children with disabilities can be raised at home with their families and supported with equal opportunities and inclusive society.
We aim for lasting change and support our partner charity, Christian Care Foundation for Children with Disabilities (CCD), to transform the lives of hundreds of children and their families.
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL CHILDREN DESERVE
To provide specialist care to some of Thailand's most vulnerable children; giving them the love, tools and support they need to thrive.
To ensure that all children can be raised and cared for in a loving home; with their parents, extended family or in loving foster or adoptive families.
To strengthen families and communities and help them to access the services and support they need to meet their children's needs.
To advocate for disability rights to assure equality and inclusion for all children and to lobby for home-based care solutions.
We are proudly partnered with CCD (Christian Care Foundation for Children with Disabilities), in Thailand. CCD have a phenomenal reputation for providing award-winning care for children with disabilities, regardless of gender, nationality, creed or religion. CCD have been working for 3 decades to improve the lives of the disabled community in Thailand, particularly to give children with disabilities the respect, care and opportunities they deserve.
CCD work with over 400 differently-abled children across 4 provinces in Thailand. Each child's family and community are also served, giving them the support and power to cope with the pressures of raising a child with special needs. CCD believe in a holistic approach, offering: day-care and specialist residential care for disabled children unable to live with their families and family-based rehabilitation in communities empowering them to raise disabled children at home.
CCD was founded in 1986 when the UK Charity CORD began working with children in government institutions in Thailand. CCD currently has over 50 Thai staff and 10 international volunteers.
For Life Thailand is a UK registered charity committed to supporting the work of our incredible partners in Thailand.
We raise vital funds for the continuation of projects for disabled children in four provinces in Thailand.
We recruit, screen and train professional volunteers and skilled workers to support children with disabilities in Thailand.
We champion working care models that focus on the successes and impact of family-based care as a replacement to institutional care.
We network with like-minded organisations in the hope to change global care models for disabled children.
Our role is to represent our donor's and supporter's interests and ensure their donations are used in the best possible way to achieve the vision we share with CCD. We promise to fundraise, manage funds and collaborate with CCD in an ethical, transparent and meaningful way.
Our Fundraising Promise outlines how we raise funds for our projects. We are committed to keeping our overheads as low as they can be so that vital funds can be used for direct project implementation.
We are a small but passionate team that is dedicated to keeping CCD connected to their friends and supporters in Europe and ensuring they have the funds, platforms and resources to continue their life-changing work.
