Family History and General Information
Meen, Kaimook, and Satang are siblings. Meen is from a poor and broken family. She is from Chonburi and has another half-sibling apart from Satang and Kaimook. 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 Meen receives the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Meen 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.
Meen finished her 2nd term of Kindergarten 2. She continues her Kindergarten 3 when the new school year started at the middle of this month. This past school term her favourite subject was Art as she said she enjoys drawing and colouring.
At school, Meen gets along well with all her classmates. Last term, she had a chance to join in the annual sport games where she competed in 50m sprint, and she won a gold medal. Good job Meen! She is friends with everyone, but at the Village, her best friend is Gaafae, the little girl who just came to the same house with her. They are very close and prefer to talk amongst each other. They enjoy drawing, colouring, watching cartoons, and running around together.
Meen has a very good appetite, eating pretty much anything, but her favourite food she says is boiled corn on the cob. Overall, she continues to be healthy and strong with no major issues.
Meen 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. Meen 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. She enjoys doing activities with our volunteers on every Saturday, too.
The school closed for the summer holidays in April and Meen returned home to spend time with her family.
