The Mercy House Foundation in Hua Hin!
CWC is very pleased and honoured to work again with the Mercy House Foundation in Hua Hin as the beneficiary for the CWC2024 ride.
The Mercy House Foundation was established in 1998 in Pranburi Prachuap Khiri Khan by Khun Wichai, a Christian Pastor and his wife Khun Wanpen as a Children’s Home to provide a sanctuary, food and education for the many needy children in their district. This also included disabled children and those whose parents had abandoned them, were divorced or had died. Many of the children are from the Karen tribe. Starting with just 11 children in a small, flood-prone and mosquito-infested house, constant progress was made and Mercy House has now a capacity to take in up to 24 children in separate dormitories for boys and girls.
Aside from the 20 children at Mercy House, the foundation is also supporting 160 Thai children and Karen hill tribe children in remote villages from poor families.
Up to today the Mercy House is run by Khun Wichai and Khun Wanpen, supported by their daughter Khun Two and two other adults. Mercy House is funded by a corporate donor from Sweden, donations from individuals as well as self-generated revenue.
Mercy House Mission Statement:
