The Chonburi Handicap Project was started by Rosanne in January 2008 after the Governor of Chonburi Province in Thailand, where Rosanne lives, asked the public for assistance for the many handicapped people living in Chonburi who live in housing conditions unsuitable to their special requirements and who receive only B500 (USD15) per month to live on.
Working together with the Redemptorist Center of Pattaya (under the Father Ray Foundation) Rosanne has been able to visit the worst cases over the past year or more and help make a difference in the lives of 45 handicapped men, women and children by providing medical care, wheel chairs, hospital beds and building or repairing existing homes. Funds were raised with the help of local clubs, organisations and private citizen to make this possible.
The Chonburi Handicap Project has improved the lives of many Thai families who live in poverty and have the added responsibility of supporting a handicapped spouse, child or grandchild in our community. Women With a Mission is proud to continue the work of Rosanne and the Redemptorists and bring this project under our ‘umbrella of activities’.
