Home > Uncategorized > In the spotlight: Gun! IN NEED OF SPONSOR

Gun is one of the boys that is still in need of a sponsor. Every time he asks us if we’ve found him a sponsor yet.
He’s one of the older children who needs a sponsor the most. Remember you don’t have to sponsor a child by yourself. Maybe it’s a nice family project where everyone pinches in, or maybe you can discuss with you boss to sponsor a child with the office.


Date of Birth: 6 September 2004

Gun is a playful boy he loves to tease his “brothers and sisters” but always in a good way. He is funny and loves to play games. He works hard for school and is always there for his “brothers and sisters”.

Dreams, wishes and favorites:
“I would like to be a professional electronic guitar player because I would like to see people singing and dancing. My favorite food is Khao soi (northern style noodle dish) no matter if it’s chicken or pork, I love it! In my free time I like practicing with my guitar so I can play lots of songs. I wish I could have spare strings for my guitar to change them when they are broken”.

Why Sponsor a Child?
You might want to know what happens with your sponsorship funding when you sponsor a child and what the benefits are for you and the child. We will explain to you how sponsorship works and how you can get involved.

Choose a Child to Sponsor
The first step in becoming a sponsor is choosing a child you want to help. If you found a child you feel connected to you can fill in our form or for more information about the specific child send us an e-mail.

Contribute to a Child’s Future
Sponsoring a child costs only $35 USD / €31 euro per month — less than the price of a cup of coffee each day.
Although $35 USD / €31 euro per month may not seem like a lot of money, it’s amazing what a difference this sum can make in a child’s life. As a sponsor, you’ll help your child with their basic needs as in health care, nutritious food, access to education, clean water and if there is enough the possibility to participate in extra classes or hobbies (Dance class, music instruments, English classes etc.).

Make a Personal Connection
We believe that the most rewarding aspect of child sponsorship is to be personally in touch with them. If you choose to write, you’ll receive regular letters from your sponsored child, telling you about daily life, school and friends. Over time, you can develop a strong bond with the child you sponsor, enabling you to see how your generosity is making a difference.

Visit the Child You Sponsor

Maybe letters are simply not enough. If you want to meet the child you sponsor, you can discuss the possibility of visiting him or her personally. Stichting Weeshuis Thailand can help you coordinate a visit with your sponsored child, which can be a life-changing experience. Rather than relying on letters to see how your support is making a difference, you can see it firsthand.
To make a difference in the life of a child, please consider Sponsoring a Child. Your support and commitment will ensure we can continue to provide essential help to these orphans, and offer hope to children growing up without their family.
