Mae Gone orphange, Northern Thailand

CH URC supports the Suk Jai children’s home in the village of Mai Gone,

near the city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. 

 The Rev Abel Sairattanyu and his wife run 6~7 Christian churches, and the orphanage, in the Golden Triangle border area with Myanmar (Burma) infamous for opium production.  The diffuse mountainous area is the stronghold of six culturally distinct peoples – the Karen, Hmong, Mien, Lahu, Akha and Lisu – struggling to maintain the integrity of their beliefs and way of life whilst shunned by both Burma and the western orientated government in Thailand.
