A great cause for Sangkhlaburi
Baan Unrak has also expanded to provide some medical care, install solar panels and build wells for remote villages. Volunteers are accepted for a wide range of long-term positions, although it is possible to do short-term service if there is a specific need.
You can also contribute without volunteering simply by enjoying an excellent meal at Baan Unrak restaurant and bakery, and perhaps picking up a hand-made article of clothing from the shop. For more information, visit www.baanunrak.org.
