The Mother and Baby Home fosters a community of care and support.
“Every value of life is important, and I believe that everyone can support each other in a small or big way,” said Sr Chalaad.
While community attitudes and acceptance of single mothers and children born out of wedlock is changing in Thailand, Sr Chalaad says the support and assistance of the Good Shepherd Sisters and the Mothers and Baby Home is needed now more than ever, with a concerning trend of domestic violence.
The Thai government is doing its best to raise awareness, but many women are suffering and in crisis.
“There are many government programs to support domestic violence but there are still come cases that they can't reach out to,” she said.
"So, they come to us. That's why we still need to help.”
