Together we are changing lives!
Right now, we are doing our best to provide some financial support to Ken, a 51 year old Thai lady, in the lead up to her Kidney transplant. She continues dialysis and medical consultations in the lead up to her surgery.
Ken had hoped to have surgery before the end of 2020. However due to an incompatibility with her planned donor, things are going to take a lot longer.
SUPPORTING BABY GAO
Community Yogi Sandrine first met baby Gao when she was just a few days old in December 2019. Sandrine could see that the family needed essential supplies for a new born baby, and approached us to provide ongoing support to the family.
The Free Yoga Community will supports baby Gao’s family by purchasing nappies, baby formula and other supplies to help the little girl and her family.
Over the past couple of months we were able to provide a cot and some second hand clothes donated by expats living on Samui, as well as some much needed rice, drinking water and other
The Free Yoga Community Samui provides Epilepsy medication and ongoing medical support as required to Kiew, a 26yo young Thai man. Kiew lives with his mother, who is currently out of work (due to COVID).
Kiew’s medicine, ‘Dilantin’, costs 550 THB per month. Without this medicine he was having multiple seizures each day, and was unable to participate in normal activities.
In the past the Free Yoga Community Samui has paid for Kiew’s hospital, doctor and dental expenses (including CT scan and appointments with the specialist)
YOGA FOR THE KIDS
These kids are in good hands!
Kruu Kom and Kruu Nam, local yoga teachers, will visit the Magical Learning Centre every week to do some yoga and stretching with the kids.
This activity is supported by the Free Yoga Community. We will provide a small payment to Thai yoga teachers Kom and Nam for their time.
COVID has affected the number of visitors coming to the island- which in turn has reduced the income of full time yoga teachers living on Samui. Every little bit helps.
BUILDING UP A GOOD APPETITE
The children from the Magical Learning Centre on Samui are invited to swim once a week at Sea Dance resort in Choeng Mon. This is a wonderful morning out for the kids and includes a tasty lunch in the Sea Dance beachside restaurant afterwards.
The Free Yoga Community Samui will be sponsoring the kids lunch at Sea Dance once per month. Our first sponsored lunch will be on 25th November 2020, and we’ll be sure to share some photos afterwards.
