On February 28th, Dr. Amput, an ISGF member, and a team of doctors from Chulalongkorn Hospital examined ear/nose/throat of over 500 children at Pakkred Home. Some of these children are disabled, either physically or mentally and do not get a chance to have their ears/nose/throat checked up on a regular basis. ISGF members and volunteers joined the event to help facilitate the work. A full story will be published in the next issue of our Newsletter.
Our second-hand goods sale went very well this year. The charity event raised over Bt120,000 for ISGF, a record amount!
We will hold our second hand goods sale at the Labour Ministry on August 31, 2012 to raise fund for ISGF. This is an annual event, but this past year due to the flood and unexpected events, we have postponed the sale several times. If you have unused goods that you would like to donate or be a volunteer to help price or sell the goods, please contact us at 02-258-5332.

The International Support Group Foundation (ISGF) is a non-profit, welfare group of International and Thai volunteers helping underprivileged people in Thailand to support themselves. For more than 23 years ISGF has played a major part in the lives of a many disadvantaged people in Thailand. Our main role is to raise and distribute funds to support education and we also develop new and existing projects such as our Wheelchair Project, Dental Project or Community Service Project to further our aim. We work in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and other organizations.
We continue to achieve our aims because of our members and sponsors, both past and present; men and women who come from different backgrounds, are of varying ages and have many differing interests; people whose enthusiasm and commitment to our group have ensured its continued success.
