We are a faith-based, non-denominational, not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope to the hopeless in Thailand.
Hope Thailand was envisioned in 2009 (formerly known as S.E.A. (South East Asia) Ministry) by Tutu Bee. A member of the Karen tribe herself, Tutu felt an overwhelming need to provide shelter and care to the displaced Hill Tribe children and refugees along the Thai/Burma border.
Tutu’s vision was, and continues to be, to provide a safe and loving home-like setting for these children. This vision, in cooperation with both missionaries and local church leaders, has resulted in the establishment of 9 homes: Berea Home, Gethsemane Home, Bethel Home, Wang Pa Home, Immanuel Home, Piyawat Home, Numpon Home and the newest homes Peace Children’s Home and Sunshine Home.
Each home, of up to 40 children of various ages, is led by dedicated, Christian house parents. Funding by individuals and churches in North America ensures the children are well cared for both physically and spiritually. The children go to school, receive health and dental care, shelter, clothing, food and a sense of family and belonging within a Christian environment.
In addition to providing a safe place for refugee children, the organization regularly visits the Mae Sot trash dump refugee camp along the Myanmar border (formerly Burma) to provide medicine, clean water and food.
