Charity Hua Hin Thailand is a group of national and international volunteers donating their time and resources to help those with disabilities and other underprivileged people in Thai society.
The volunteers work in close cooperation with physical therapists and social workers from Hua Hin Hospital who select the poor patients for them.
Charity Hua Hin Thailand tries to assist people with disabilities of all ages, as well as poor elderly and other disadvantaged people in the Hua Hin / Pranburi region in Thailand.
We are currently working on building a website [Admin edit: link removed in accordance with forum T&Cs, it contains advertising for Hua Hin businesses.] and social media like https://www.facebook.com/charityhuahinthailand and https://twitter.com/charityhuahin to get more exposure and to get the necessary funds and donations.
We would be very happy if we could get the help from you to e.g. organising events for fundraising like for Kung https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf4aTjguhkA
About Charity Hua Hin Thailand
•Who works with Charity Hua Hin ?

Since 2010 they distribute all kinds of necessary items to underprivileged people with disabilities in the area Hua Hin, Pranburi, Pala-U and Nong Plub.
•Where are the volunteers based ?
The volunteers are based in Hua Hin. All needs are bought and immediately distributed so there is no need for a store.

None, because all volunteers work free of charge. Even e.g. car fuel related to the monthly deliveries, is always paid privately. All donations to the patients are made in kind. A proper financial administration is kept.
•Do the elderly and people with disabilities receive an allowance from the Thai Government ?
Yes, the monthly allowance is:
- Tbt 700 for elderly people of 65 years and older, which is not enough to buy food.
