THF in Thailand

Mr. Witboon has been serving families in northern Thailand with Food Paks for three years. Once out of depression, the families he served in the beginning were able to find work and become more Financially stable.   The Food Paks they received lessened the immediate burden of providing for their hungry families, enabling them to pay for their children’s education.

MAKE A MAGNIFICENT IMPACT IN 2017

By Brian Paul Each year I like to take time to reflect on the previous year – the ups and downs, what brought me happiness and what I could work on next year to become the best possible person I can be. Is it me or do we sometimes feel like the year has beat us up a bit? Maybe a lot. I, myself, have had a year filled with illness, injury and too many personal goals pushed aside. When it comes to charitable giving I usually tend to fall short there as well. I usually regret not giving more and not serving more.
