“Business is better than ever!”

Ken Hulme - 700 Club International Managing Director

Chiang Mai, Thailand

A short time before Covid-19 hit Thailand, Ploy lost her job. As a single mom she didn’t know how she would provide for her six-year-old daughter.

That was the first time CBN’s Orphan’s Promise stepped in to help. We Ploy equipment and supplies to start a business selling food in front of her house.

“The business changed our lives!” declared Ploy. “I made more than $20 a day, enough for rent, food, and my daughter’s school fees!"

Then the pandemic hit and Ploy was forced to shut down her business.

“The government said all businesses had to shut down,” she recalled. “People could not leave their homes. I couldn’t sell any food. We were all alone. There was no one to ask for help. I felt like I was trapped in the dark and I couldn’t find a way out.”

That’s when Orphan’s Promise returned to Ploy’s community. This time we brought food packs filled with rice, eggs, noodles, fish, and milk. We also gave them hand cleaner and face masks.

“My daughter said, ‘Look, Mom, they’ve come to help us! We’ve got food!’ I thought, ‘We’re saved!’ As soon as I could, I cooked a meal for us. I was so happy!”

After the government eased the shutdowns, Orphan’s Promise also provided capital for her to buy food and other supplies to restart her business.
 
“Business is better than ever and I’m saving part of my income again,” she said happily “I’m also able to share food with my neighbors. You helped us and brought us joy and now, we share that joy with others. Thank you!”
