Family History and General Information
Pop and Auto are brothers who come from a poor and broken family in Rayong – where is not too far from Pattaya. Their parents are separated while their father whereabouts is unknown. Pop and Auto were born from a same father while their mother is remarried and has two babies with her new husband. Their step-father is a disabled person. Their mother and step-father are selling bakery at a local market. Every day, their step-father lets both of Pop and Auto carrying a tray of bakery and walk to sell around the market. Due to their ages just six and five years old, during the way they walk, some of bakery was falling to the ground. This caused their step-father was very angry and punished them.
The supervising teacher of Pop and Auto saw some scar on their legs and arms, so she was asking their mother what happened to them. In order to keep Pop and Auto safe, their mother decided to ask the supervising teacher to ask for help from our Drop-In Center with the hope that they receive the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Pop is welcomed by every member of the Village to live in the eighth 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.
Pop is currently in first grade at Baan Nork School. Here at our Village, he mixes well with the children. Everyone is very happy to see that Auto has been able to adapt himself well to his new surroundings and has made friends at both our Village and at his school. He is healthy and is playful like children his age. He has shown responsibility in cleaning after himself and his room. Continued close monitoring and supervision are being maintained to ensure that her transition into his new life goes as smoothly as possible.
