Family History and General Information
Kaimook, Satang, and Meen are siblings. Kaimook is from a poor and broken family. She is from Chonburi and has another half-sibling apart from Satang and Meen. Her parents are separated. Her father is an alcoholic and was imprisoned for the possession and use of drugs. Her mother abandoned the children soon after. She was left with her grandmother who is very old and has an unsteady income. The grandmother is unable to take care of all three children. She then came to our Fr. Ray Children’s Village with the hope that Kaimook receives the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Kaimook is welcomed by every member of the Village to live in the ninth house. Like all children here, she 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.
Kaimook finished her 2nd term of Grade 3. She continues her Grade 4 when the new school year started at the middle of this month. This past school term her favourite subject were Mathematics and Thai Language. On the other hand, the hardest subject for her was English as she said that she isn’t good at reading and writing.
At school, Kaimook gets along well with all her classmates. She is friends with everyone, but at the Village, her best friend is Ploy. They are very close and prefer to talk amongst each other. They are chatting about life and anything that is happening at the Village and the school. They enjoy playing badminton and running around together.
Kaimook has a very good appetite, eating pretty much anything, but her favourite foods she says are stir fried minced pork with basil leaves and fried egg and som tum or spicy papaya salad – a very popular answer amongst our children. Overall, she continues to be healthy and strong with no major issues.
Kaimook is living happily in House Number 9. During the school’s holidays she was lucky to be able to go to Hat Sai Kaew Navy Beach with the rest of the Village. Kaimook loves swimming and she had an amazing time playing in the water and sand – exploring all the little fish and creatures the beach had to offer. Moreover, she also participated in a charity project called “Strengthening Social Immunity of Children and Youth”at the Children’s Home.
The school closed for the summer holidays in April and Kaimook returned home to spend time with her family.
