Lion House Charity Thank you - Bangkok Prep

Lion House Charity Thank you

In Primary School’s February House Assembly, the Lions House Captains invited and interviewed Mrs Karen Fitzstevens. As an infant, she was rescued by Sahathai’s parent organisation in Korea and was adopted by a family overseas. After coming to Bangkok and having biological children, she adopted her Thai daughter from Sahathai Foundation.

During the assembly, we asked her what it was like being an orphan; being adopted in a family with other siblings; living in a culture she doesn’t fit in; and what kind of advice she could give us in overcoming problems and challenges.

As a result of this assembly, the Lions House organised a charity drive for Sahathai Foundation, our neighbourhood organisation that reaches beyond Bangkok’s borders. The foundation has several projects throughout the country, but the five main projects are the foster family project; the adoptive family project; supporting welfare homes (Pakkret Babies Home Orphanage); adoption follow up programs; and family welfare programs that assist mothers out of wedlock and rehabilitate family members.

The results were astounding. Together, Primary School collected new diapers, powdered milk, personal toiletries, clothing, school supplies and toys weighing more than 330 kg!

The Year Group who collected the heaviest donations earned 20 Dojos per student.

The winner of this year’s 2023 Lion House Charity is Year 2 who collected 136.3 kg.

Thank you, Bangkok Prep Primary School, for your kind and generous donations to Sahathai Foundation. Combining our school’s life values of caring, teamwork and problem solving, we came together to make a difference in our community.
