Urgent: Two Siblings in Need of a Home

Siblings in need of a home

Case Background

In April, a couple was arrested in northern Thailand for drugs. They were judged and each sentenced to 25 years in prison. This couple had three children but now has two siblings in need of a home.

Their oldest child is a little girl (3 years 9 months) is currently staying with her auntie. The middle child, a little boy (2 years old), is with his grandmother. And tragically, the 9-month-old baby was in the care of his uncle, but died under suspicious circumstances.

Relatives have contacted Child and Family Prison Ministries (CFPM) asking for help.

What You Can Do to Help

Because of the level of care needed for such young kids, CFPM has only been able to take school-age children up to this point. But if funds can be raised to support these two kids, CFPM will partner with Grace Haven Children’s Home (a partner branch of CFPM), who has an available caregiver who can be dedicated to these two siblings in need of a home.

In the care of CFPM and Grace Haven, the children could be safe and get to grow up together in the same home.

Forty dollars per month supports one of these children with food, diapers, clothing, and medical care.

About Child and Family Prison Ministry

Child and Family Prison Ministry (CFPM) is a home in Thailand for children whose parents are in prison either for life or long enough that the children will be adults by the time the parents are released.

The Need

In Thailand, when a mother is arrested and put into prison, a child under 1 year of age will be sent to live with her in prison. Therefore, the child will have no opportunity to live in a normal family. When a child living in a prison under the control of prison officials turns 1 year old, he or she will be separated from their mother. Siblings will be separated and sent to an orphanage, a children’s home, or back to live with relatives. Most of these children are not provided care, some are ill treated, and all are at risk for abuse, human trafficking, or being forced into prostitution.

The Solution

The mission of Child and Family Prison Ministry is to stop the cycle of neglect, abuse, child labor, and forced prostitution. CFPM provides hope for these children. With parents’ consent and permission, the foundation can legally provide care for their children. Every child in the care of CFPM lives in a warm, caring, loving, and safe family with healthy food, a good education, and good health provision.Each CFPM home is limited to hosting a maximum of nine children so that each child can be cared for individually. The foundation also realizes and values the significance of the relationship between the biological mother/father and the child. CFPM tries to maintain that important relationship by providing opportunities for the children to visit their parents in prison as much as possible. In addition, the foundation values keeping siblings together.
