We visit Banglamung and Soi 9 prisons three times per week, giving food and water to all the inmates on each visit. Each month we feed over 1500 inmates. Many of these are illegal immigrants from neighbouring countries.
Often, Cambodians, Burmese and Laotians are hired by construction companies in Thailand because they will work for very little pay.
Unfortunately not all employers are honest; when it comes time to pay the hired workers, the employers will turn them into the police for being in the country without a work permit. They are arrested and deported back to their countries with only what they are wearing and they don’t receive any of the money that they have worked so hard to earn.
We often see children in the prisons as they are incarcerated along with their parents. We supply them with milk, medication, diapers and special treats. Donated clothing is also given to these people as well as assistance with minor medical needs. Once a year we clean and paint the prisons and recently we fixed the main sliding door in the Banglamung prison.
