Located in Chiang Mai, the B. K. Kee Patient House is part of the BCMF Foundation. It’s often described as a much smaller-scale version of the Ronald McDonald House program, which shares a common goal to keep children and families together when facing a health crisis that involves medical services unavailable near their homes. The brainchild of BCMF founder Kanchana Thornton, the house serves as a hostel-type residence for up to 24 patients and caregivers while they wait for and recover from treatment in a nearby hospital. Most of the patients and families are poor migrants who live along the Thailand-Myanmar border.
