Kingdom Kids

Gamon* came to Kingdom Kids at age 2 and weighed 5kgs. With huge unresolved infant feeding problems because of prematurity, he had been fed rice water by his 9 year old brother and kept in a dark, dilapidated bamboo hut, uncared for by his alcoholic mother. Three years later, he is a lovable, active little boy who, God willing, is headed to USA with an adoring Christian family.

In Thai culture, it is rare for an unknown abandoned baby to be adopted because of the associated bad karma attached to the child, particularly a disabled child. Kingdom Kids helps young orphaned and at- risk Thai children, most with developmental problems, to reach their potential by establishing a network of foster homes. They train and mentor Thai carers and foster parents and also provide an educational programme for those children who would not be accepted in the local Thai school. Wherever they go with these children, they are given opportunity to talk about the merit that Jesus gives, not something that is earned by good deeds. This project is based in small rural villages about 32 km north of Chiang Mai and works in close association with the local Government orphanage.

Currently 22 young children have been given a new future through Kingdom Kids.

As the number of children needing care has increased, God has supplied funds to build an Intake and Accommodation Centre on the Kingdom Kids farm. The existing Kingdom Kids School, with 21 children currently registered, is run in a rented home as a branch of the Special Needs Centre of Chiang Mai. As God further provides, there are plans to build our own Therapy and Special Needs School which would be open to more children with disability in the area.
