Welcome to the web site of ‘The Foundation’ - a legally registered Thai, non-profit charity which was founded in 1993 to “promote the health, education, employment, and dignity of disabled persons of north Thailand.” We provide free services to poor and needy disabled persons and their families across six northern provinces of Thailand - providing free wheelchairs, mobility aids, home visits, residential care and compassionate love. Each page of our site is filled with information and photographs of those we serve as well as details on how you can help, whether it be by volunteering to work with us, or by donating to this very worthy cause. Its easy to donate, just ‘click’ on the blue disabled button, and follow the instructions. Also keep an eye on our ‘Wheelchair Watch’ counter, which shows how many wheelchairs & disability aids we have given away free to date.
You can show your support in many ways, from sponsoring a wheelchair for $300, which includes delivery and servicing, sponsoring one of the severely disabled children in our resident care facility for just $200 per month, or donating a walking stick (cane) for only $20!
We rely entirely upon charitable donations. We receive no government support as we continue our commitment to assist some of the most needy disabled persons in South East Asia.
Our ‘Mission’ is based upon creating independence, providing opportunity and offering support.
We endeavor to never say ‘No’ to disabled persons who seek our help regardless of their ethnic background or religion. We seek to encourage full disability potential, promoting self esteem, and addressing access challenges, as well as dispelling negative prejudices.
