Members and friends of Skål Chiang Mai and the North visited the Mae Maeh Orphanage on Sunday, January 12, 2014.
Located up a steep mountain slope outside Chiang Dao the group of intrepid travelers started the day early at the Makro purchasing carts of goods; food, supplies and of course some toys for the kids.
Gill Dobson led the purchasing team with assistance from Janet Hennessey, Beryl and Jonathan McKeown, as well as Allan and Aon Ashton, Irene and Norman McDermott also helped out with shopping earlier in the week. Gill’s efforts in pricing and determining needs made sure that everything that was needed was purchased from the budget set aside from the Christmas fundraising dinner held at Le Coq D’Or in December.
General Manager of Khum Phaya Resort Jerome Sim found a supplier for the 1,000 kilos of rice at a great price, so many thanks to Jerome for the contact! His staff also very generously cooked the lunch meal for the kids and the visitors.
