Human Solutions >> Medical Charity >> Jungle Aid


 


We started volunteering with Jungle Aid in January 2013 supporting its assessment and medical trips to various remote villages along the Thai-Myanmar borders in the south province Hua Hin, Petchaburi. Jungle Aid

believes that providing medical assistance and education to people in need can change their lives – and believes it can change yours, too. From the beginning they pledged to offer a brighter future to those living in the remotest locations of Thailand.

MORE INFO:

Jungle Aid is a private charity bringing essential education, sustainability and medical support to displaced people in Thailand.

In today’s world, it is not difficult to think about our education, our food, and our health. We face growing concerns about our the standards of ours schools, whether our food contains pesticides or is genetically modified, and growing concerns about our health. Life can be stressful and oftentimes it can all get on top of us.

But let’s forget about us.

Many of us we will never have to worry about receiving basic life skills and lessons. We’ve never had to starve ourselves so that our children can eat what little food we have. And we will never know what it is like to live with large, painful tumours and not be able to seek medical attention. Whenever we feel ill we simply go to see the doctor, and we are then seen to. Yet there are thousands of people who do not have access to these basic human needs.

The people we support live in remote locations on the boarder of Thailand and Myanmar and have extremely restricted resources. Our primary aim is to provide them with the skills, knowledge and materials to become sustainable.

We’d like to introduce you to a few of these thousands of people. They are very real, and they need our help. They didn’t choose to live in a village where they are hundreds of miles from sources of food and medical attention. And we didn’t choose to be born in a country where we have easy access to supermarkets, schools and nurses.

What would you do to survive? How would you feed and educate your children if you had no resources to do either? Who would you ask for help?

For these people Jungle Aid is an important and essential lifeline. With your help we provide them with the knowledge, the supplies and the continued support to make a positive impact on their lives.

Now, make a decision to help. We’re not offering an overnight solution or a scheme to westernise their lives, but instead, we are committed to doing things that work; things like teaching villagers about diet, providing on-site medical clinics, arranging transportation and covering costs for those who require surgery and setting long-term goals to make villages self-sustainable. For about 500 baht a person, we know how to help change lives.
