Baan Kingkaew Orphanage Chiang Mai Reviews
Connect With The Kids Nov 21, 2009
Few weeks before leaving Chiang Mai I was sharing my interest and passion in working with children on a project I had going. After speaking to a young lady at massage school who had told me of another orphanage I spoke to some locals who told me about Baan Kingkaew.
I stopped in to donate some crayons and drawing books. I had the opportunity to meet the three different groups of young children and the caretakers. I was happy and impressed in how well cared for the kids are. They allowed me to spend time there and shortly after I arrived one young girl ran up to me and hugged me, talking about a tear-jerker!
I also help to feed them and clean up after them. The best part was the playing. I really enjoy my time here and the pleasure to connect with these wonderful people. My days were short and really wanted to come back, however due to the remainder of my time I was unable to. I will return again on my next trip and give a larger part of my time.
