Over 50 years old, a group of kind hearted Thai and expat lady volunteers living in Chiang Mai helped to support orphaned children left for care at what was then Suan Dok Hospital – now called Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. The volunteers helped to establish and secure funding for Baan (home) Kingkaew Wiboolsanti (pronounced “Viboonsanti”), a safe haven where poor orphans would find affection and care. Since its early days, ‘Baan Kingkaew’ has continued to improve and develop living conditions and the quality of care it is able to provide.
The generosity of Khun Kingkaew Wiboolsanti who gifted a house with land and financial endowment, enabled establishment of the orphanage. It opened its doors in July 1966 to 25 orphaned and homeless boys and girls. In honour of the major donor, it was named Baan Kingkaew Wiboolsanti. Managed by a committee of Chiang Mai Orphanage Foundation it was the first orphanage established in the northern Thai city.
Today the orphanage provides a home for 50 orphans aged from 3 months to 6 years, who have no other viable means of support. At the home, the children benefit from a good quality of life in a loving, caring environment. They are looked after around the clock by qualified and experienced carers, including nannies, kindergarten teachers and a healthcare team from Chiang Mai University’s medical and health care faculties and departments.
We will help develop our children to grow up physically, mentally and socially.
We will help build King Kaew House. Full of love, warmth, smile, harmony, nutrition. And health of everyone.
