Sponsor a Child
We have several children that are still in need of sponsors at any level. Many of the children are disabled and cannot write letters. We’ll send you an initial bio and picture plus regular updates, pictures, letters and “drawings or coloring book pictures” depending on their capabilities.
Your sponsorship will help provide:
Wheelchairs and Therapy Equipment
Necessary medications for HIV-Positive Children
Disability Care Education for the caretakers of the disabled (often in remote villages)
Physical Therapy for disabled children including home visits from our trained Physical and Occupational Therapists
We offer tiered sponsorship opportunities at $25, $50 and $100 a month levels.
Sometimes, we allow a child to have more than 1 sponsor. If a child is not sponsored at a sustainable level, we cover their cost of care from our general

Our orphanage, known as the House of Love, is a home for women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. This includes women who had been sold into prostitution, AIDS orphans, and children taken out of their homes by the Social Welfare Department because of abuse. Many of the residents do not have Thai citizenship and have few rights in Thailand.
Now in it’s 26 th year, the House of Love has been a refuge to approximately one hundred displaced women and children, most of whom have been affected by HIV/AIDS—and many of whom had been trafficked to brothels.
While most children have been affected by AIDS, many children deal with the emotional scars from events surrounding their life at home or on the streets or feeling unloved because their family can’t care for them.
It’s not just physical and medical needs that the ministry serves, the House Of Love staff also works to meet the emotional and spiritual needs of each child. The House of Love is a home—and, more importantly, it is a family.

Our disability clinic, known in Thailand as The Christian Center For The Development of People With Disabilities (CDPD) provides services, assistance, and emotional support to disabled children and their families from over 50 remote Hilltribe villages—in the Mae Hong Son Province located in northwest Thailand—where previously no help for the disabled was available. Many of the Hilltribe villagers believe people with disabilities are cursed and afflicted by “evil” spirits. Thus, families are often forced to hide their disabled members away from normal village life. We help the disabled and their care-givers reach their full potential and gain acceptance within their families and communities.

Our daycare facility, known as The House of Blessing, is located in Chiang Mai. The House of Blessing provides free day care and education to over 60 Hilltribe children who are too young to attend public school. This enables the parents to find “day jobs” so their children don’t need to sell trinkets and flowers in the night markets.
All of the children in the daycare program receive transportation, free education, basic healthcare, Thai language instruction and proper nourishment. The House of Blessing workers are always on the look-out for children who may need full-time care. Many of the new House of Love residents are referred from the daycare program.
