The Haven Children’s Home Pattaya – Koh Chang Holiday 2018

‘The Haven Children’s Home has thirty three kids in their care, with an average age of 10.  Providing these kids with a safe, loving home and a decent education is essential to helping them stay on the right path and guiding them into a happy, productive future.

In April nineteen kids from the Havens went on holiday to the beautiful island of Koh Chang.  A four hour drive and short ferry trip brought them to 15 Palms Beach Resort.  After lunch they had their first chance to play in the pool and enjoy the beautiful beach.  To end this long and exhausting day it was a much enjoyed pizza and ice-cream tea before bed at Paddy’s Palms Resort.

After breakfast it was time for a boat trip.  Many of the kids had never been on a boat trip or been snorkelling before. The first stop was Koh Wai, with crystal clear, colourful fish and amazing coral.  After lunch the group had great fun swimming and jumping off the boat.  At the second island, Koh Ngam, there was snacks for all on board.

The last morning was spent by the pool at Paddy’s Palms before heading back to Pattaya.  Sharon, Khun Boon, Khun Oy and Khun Ton from the Havens Children’s home looked after the kids brilliantly.  Everybody is already looking forward to next year’s trip.
