DASchild Fundraiser to support Baan Nana Shelter in Northern Thailand

Original post made by Stacy May, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Nov 9, 2014

Nalin and Mark Decker of Menlo Park, CA founded the DASchild charitable organization in 2007 with an aim to protect children from trafficking in Thailand. DASchild works closely with a shelter - Baan Nana (Thai for Childlife) Shelter - in Northern Thailand, which is home to over 80 children who have been saved from such conditions. Baan Nana provides emergency and long-term shelter including education, medical care, food, and clothing for these children.

The Decker family will be traveling to visit Baan Nana to host a New Years Day/birthday party for these children. Most of the children do not know their official birth date, so the shelter assigned January 1st as their birthday!

Please join us in supporting this very special event to raise money for the shelter and to provide gifts for these children on their birthday. The Deckers will provide each Baan Nana child with a gift package of a small gift, bath towel, school socks, shoes, sandals and underwear. This event will take place at the home of Stacy and Robert May in Menlo Park on November 16th.

In addition to the child’s gift, your donation will go toward feeding the children, supporting Baan Nana’s Childlife Rice Program and Water Improvement Project.

Please refer to the website for more information: Web Link or contact Nalin Decker at [email protected]
