Hello, We are Yuka Shimabayashi(Yukachin) and Chiyo Nakabayashi(Chiyo), who are in charge of the newsletter this time!
We plan and manage a charity and an exchange program in the form of “feel free to
contribute internationally”. By interacting with the children of Mae Kok Foundation (MKF)onlinewe have also experienced how the donations are actually used and what the children are
In the previous volume, we delivered a lot of information about children and MKF, so this
time we will tell you about the latest charity programs and past programs.
We hope you will read it to the end!
No other! A unique year-end charity project will be held!
（Sorry this program is available only for Japanese speaking participants.）
The processes of developmentrajectory – The idea that we are happy
with each other-
In 2021, we had a charity run & walk in July and a charity Thai cooking class in
October. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Let’s see each program! (Excerpts from the activity blog)
There were about 25 participants, and the age range was from 20s to 80s! We
gathered from Japan,Thailand and South Korea.
We did our best to run (RUN) or walk (WALK) for 2 weeks while encouraging each
other as a team (called a family) toward the goals set by each. There were many
voices that we all had goals to achieve, and we reported that we ran this much
today, so we couldn’t do it alone, but we worked hard together with everyone even
though we were far away!
In addition to running, we also had a bingo project where you could experience the
culture of Thailand, Japan, and South Korea, and had time to interact with the
children of the MKF, so that you can connect with the world and meet someday! It
was a time when we all felt alike.
Donations weren’t the only purpose, but if we participated in something fun, it
would have benefited someone before we knew it! This is a new project that was
started as a project that would benefit the donors by creating a program like
this. After the new year, we are planning the second part of this project!
You can even maintain your own health while contributing internationally!
Lots of good things!
Charity Cooking Class
This is a charity cooking class. We made a dessert called green curry and coconut banana milk. After all, “Anuluck-san,” the mother of MKF in Thailand, will teach
us authentic Thai food directly. The taste and appearance changed at the timing of adding
the ingredients, and there were full of surprises.
We had a leisurely exchange with the children, the participants, and all of them, by thanking
for the food, listening to what they were doing at MKF and what they
were addicted to.
It seems natural to talk while eating the same food at the same timing, but we
were impressed that we could have such a good time even if we were away from
Thailand and Japan!
There were voices of the participants,”We want to do it again!”
What kind of food do you want to learn?
＼(^o^)！！The donation amount target has been achieved！！(^o^)／
As of November 22, the total amount of donations from everyone was 943,736 yen.
Thankfully, the goal has been achieved! !! ☆☆
※ The target for this year’s donation is 900,000 yen for stable management and
construction of a computer room.
At the stage of the previous issue, the target amount had not been reached yet,
but a few days ago, donations from OCA Thailand members began to be received, and it
was finally achieved! !!
Thanks to everyone’s caring. Thank you very much!
But this is not the end of the donation!
The life of the children will continue next year and next, and we are not sure
what the situation of the new coronavirus will be, so we will continue to accept
donations. Thank you for your continued support.
Donate here! !!
