We welcome visitors to the various projects managed by the Father Ray Foundation. However I am sure you will understand the safety of our children is paramount to our work. Therefore we ask that you accept our guidelines

  • Please contact the Father Ray Foundation Welcome Center, located in the center of Pattaya, where our staff will be able to advise you when the best time to visit is.     info@fr-ray.org    038 716 628
  • Please do not turn up at any project without making a prior appointment; many of the workers at our projects are unable to speak English, or any other foreign language.
  • We will be more than happy to arrange a visit at a suitable time when the children and students have time to spend with you. Our children leave for school early each morning and do not return home until late evening. Then they have to complete their homework and finish their chores, therefore it is not always practical to see the children during week days.Visiting
  • Many of our friends and sponsors wish to spend time with the child they sponsor. Some offer to take the child they sponsor out for a meal or to the local shops. This is possible, however for the safety of all concerned we do not allow any child to go out unaccompanied.

Due to the language barrier, and also the age difference, it is best if the child you sponsor brings along a friend, and a teacher or staff member will also accompany you on your visit.

  • There are times when the child you sponsor is not available to go on an outing. Many schools hold extra tuition sessions and it is important our children attend. There are also occasions that the child you visit is not allowed to leave the campus as they are being punished, it may be hard to believe but even our little angels are naughty sometimes. However you can still visit them at their home.

We never turn a needy child away
