Community Outreach at Petchabun
A new community outreach program was commenced in 2010 in the Lomsak - Phetchabun area under the leadership of Kerry Muir and Porn. Kerry is a long term volunteer from Brisbane, Australia, and Porn has been a staff member with House of Mercy since the early 1990s. Both women have found their niche and are helping to break the poverty circle in the lives of poor and disadvantaged local families. So many of the poor and disadvantaged in the community are women, the elderly and children, and Kerry and Porn are making a difference in the lives of many of these people.
So far with the help of teams and friends, they have provided:
- A new roof for one family
- A bathroom and toilet (their old toilet was behind the bush!)
- A new set of steps for an elderly lady
- Food parcels for the elderly
- All done with a friendly smile and encouragement.
