Mercy Center Pattaya

Mercy Center Pattaya

The work of Mercy began in the year 2000 with our growing desire to help the “street children” of Pattaya. There are the hundreds (perhaps thousands) of children and youth who live most of their young lives “at risk”, as a result of direct abuse, severe neglect, or the danger of being swallowed up in the life threatening environment of crime, drugs and sexual abuse that surrounds them on a daily basis.

Project

  • Children’s home: children’s home / shelter protects and provides for children who are “at risk” in our community, because of either of direct abuse or abuse by severe neglect. MERCY’s team of dedicated care-givers provide a clean, safe, home, good food, medical care, clothing, education and lots of love to all the children.
  • Chumchon (Slums) Project: Each week the MERCY team goes into Pattaya’s most destitute areas to bring basic food items, clothes, milk for the children, emergency medical care as needed, and hope to some of Pattaya’s poorest residents.
  • Scholarship Project: With financial support from local and international sponsors, MERCY provides scholarships for over 220 + needy Thai students, who are referred by local school authorities or chumchon (slum) community leaders.
  • Prisons: Three times a week, a team of MERCY staff and volunteers take fruit, clean drinking water and sandwiches (when supplies are available) to people in local police lock-up centers.MERCY offers emergency care as needed, help contacting family or embassies (if foreigners), and family support if Thai nationals.
  • Micro Enterprise and Livelihood and Community Development: Individual gifts or loans (as appropriate) are given to specific individuals to help create financial independence in the lives of the poorest of the poor.
  • Early Learning Center: Created to provide a positive learning environment for children in chumchon airat (slum) areas. These centers prevent children from 3 months old and up from being left in circumstances where they are put ‘at risk’
