Helping Mothers and Babies in Bangkok
“Every value of life is important, and I believe that everyone can support each other in a small or big way. It’s about giving a chance to the mothers and the children”.
For more than 50 years, women and children from vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds have turned to the Good Shepherd Sisters for love and support.
In all that time, the message has been the same: “One person is of more value than the whole world”. The Mother and Baby Home provides young mothers and children with a safe home, food, pre- and post-natal medical care, support with a small community of women in the home from similar backgrounds, and parenting skills training classes provided by professionals.
When Sr Chalaad first started working at the home there was about 30 young mothers and their babies. Resources were stretched, and sometimes there were not enough beds.
“But we still accepted them,” she said.
“It really helped me a lot to realise how important one life was: a life of the baby.”
