Agape Home Newly Built Medical Clinic April 2020
Agape Home Update Letter March 2020
Over the last 6 months the Mothers and Babies Unit has been renovated to create a new Medical Clinic at Agape. It will also include a Dental Clinic. This will enable Agape to continue to provide great medical care for the children on site.
Special Needs Home in Jarawee
Two weeks ago our special needs home in Jarawee opened 11 girls (16-20 years)
New Dormitory Project
Another exciting project at Agape is the new Dormitory building. This proposed project will support many different parts of Agape life. It will provide a safe first-step for the young adults of Agape as they transition from school to independence and life in the outside world, enable further support of Project Lek families enabling families to stay together at Agape and also to provide an accommodation option for those working in the Production Centre. It would also enable Agape staff, volunteers and teams to stay on site.
The dormitory will contain 20 individual rooms, each with private bathroom and kitchen as well as 2 family apartments on either end of the building. There will also be a communal area as well as an area for a laundry, general storage and bicycle storage.
The cost for the whole project is 7 million baht (approximately $245,000USD) and so far a little over 1 million baht has been raised. This will enable the project to begin and then continue as finances allow. Are you able to donate to support this project? Please see the Agape Home website for further details about how to contribute to this exciting project.

A JOFUL CHRISTMAS AT AGAPE HOME!!!
Our Real Santa at Agape Home Roy and Avis Rideout
Christmas morning at Agape Home – We started very early with singing and the Christmas story. Then we enjoyed breakfast together, “boiled rice” made very special for Christmas morning. Then it was gift time. The noise level was at the “Top”, especially with the teens and toddlers. We had a great morning. Ending of the morning everyone was ready for a holiday – even one day would have felt great for all the staff. We want to say again, without people like you we couldn’t have enjoyed such a wonderful Christmas. Thanks to all!! From Agape family and staff.
