Good Shepherd Sisters – Phuket (GSS-PKT)

Here, under the leadership of Sr. Lakana, more than 340 children of migrant Burmese workers are cared for and educated while their parents are working in the local fish processing industry. Without this loving care, these children would not have access to health care, nor to an education in their own Burmese language while adjusting to life in Thailand. (Unlike our experience here in America, in Thailand all education is conducted exclusively in the Thai language, with no accommodation for non-Thai speakers.)
