Hi BB
Thanks for your help. I wrote to them, and apparantly they have now created a facebookpage which is quite updated. It might be an idea to add that link to the sponsor page that exists here on HHF.
The link to the facebookpage looks a little strange since they use thai letters, but is as follows:

Hilux :D Thank you so much for that link to face book page. Not being on FB, I have never seen them before.

Great to see all the kids happy and involved in so many activities.

:cheers:

Hi all,

I'm planning an epic bike ride from Nong Khai to Bangkok in 2016 and am in the prelim planning phase.

What are your thoughts on contributing all funds received to this orphanage?

I'd like to go and visit, does anybody have an email address for the owners or a number I can call?

Thanks,

Deadpool.

Here are the directions to the Mercy House Orphanage again:

Go south towards Pranburi to the traffic lights where Tesco Lotus is.
Keep going straight and you'll see the Post Office on your left.
Keep going until you see a large sign for the company Singer on your left, which is on a corner.
Turn left there into Soi Tessebaan 1. Go as far as the second public telephone box (about 350 m) on the left and behind it you will see a sign pointing right. Go down that littel soi and the orphanage will be in front of you.

Their phone number is 081-9411770

As for a drop-off point in Hua Hin for things for the orphanage and/or charity events:
I think they're great ideas - anything that helps their situation has got to be good.

We're based in Paknampran and don't have an office in Hua Hin as yet - though that could change soon and we would then be able to accept items for the orphanage.

In the meantime, though, we would certainly be willing to collect donated items from a central pick-up point and deliver them to the orphanage - we have a pick-up truck taxi going to Hua Hin most days.

Another easy way of helping - especially for those of you with businesses locally - would be to have a space to sell the art and craft work produced by the kids to tourists etc.

We'd be very happy to bring the items to Hua Hin - we could set a fair price for resale above cost price and also give the profits back to the oprhange.

If there are people interested in organising something like this in a more formal way, I'd definitely be willing to go to a meeting in Hua Hin to discuss how we can accomplish this.

And as I said before, if 2 or 3 people would like to get to know the kids soon, you're very welcome to come and give a hand on 21 February when all of them and their guardians go on the boat tour we're organising for them.
Hi there

I've just moved to Hua Hin and would love to get involved.
Fundraising or I even have a drop off point for items for the orphanage.
Please contact me if I may assist?
