Family History and General Information
Boom and Orn are half-siblings. Boom comes from a poor and broken family. His parents are separated. His mother has been convicted and spent time in jail several times for the possession and use of drugs. She has been remarried several times, while Boom’s father disappeared from his life. Boom and his sister were living with their grandparents until their grandmother passed away. They were then sent to live with their aunt, who unfortunately could not take care of them properly as she already has two children of her own. Boom and Orn were left to fend for themselves in many ways, almost always being left alone at home. At times they would barely have food to eat and they did not attend school. They were unclean and not developing properly for their age. Their aunt contacted the Rayong Shelter for Children and Families and asked for help. Finally, the Rayong Shelter contacted our Village and Boom and his older sister were transferred to our Fr. Ray Children’s Village with the hope that he receives the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Boom is welcomed by every member of the Village to live in the tenth house. Like all children here, he is well looked after by the Caregiver “Mother” who takes care of the children under the “we are family” concept and gives them the family life that all children require and deserve.
Boom finished his primary Grade 2 in March. He advanced to Grade 3 when the new school year starts in July.
Last term, Boom obtained a very good school result. He said that he enjoyed studying all courses. His teacher reported that Boom can work well independently and in a group setting. He is also a very responsible boy who has done his daily duty well.
