Crisis Pregnancy Centre Dreams

“For many years I have had the desire to help girls who find themselves with an unwanted pregnancy. In 1993, I had the opportunity during a 3 month Leadership Training School in Tonga, South Pacific, to write a project proposal on developing a Crisis Pregnancy Centre. Now, all these years later, this dream is becoming realised. The Crisis Pregnancy Centre is ready to go, we are just waiting for staff to assist in that specific area – to live with and be available to these girls at risk. Statistics reveal that Thailand is the second highest country in the ASEAN Nations for teenage births in 2015 (Bangkok Post). Geographically, we are very close to two large university campuses. We often hear of young girls in need of help in this area.”
