Bangkok Community Help Foundation
27 September 2022
ELC invited Bangkok Community Help Foundation (BCHF) to talk to our Year 3 children about the work that they do each day to help those in need. BCHF is a community initiative founded by Greg Lange and Friso Poldervaart in February 2020 as the pandemic took hold. It initially started out by distributing hot meals to hunger-stricken people living in the Khlong Toei slum areas as well as helping to provide medical essentials and access to healthcare for critical cases during the peak pandemic. With the help of entrepreneurs and a fast-growing network of volunteers that now number over 400, it has developed its reach through its many renovation and construction projects – including building houses for individual families; providing food and other living essentials; helping children with school fees, and more.
As part of their Mathematics unit, our Year 3 children were exploring the value of 1000 baht; BCHF shared (below) how it can be used to really make a difference. Thanks to BCHF for their incredible work!
