Let me begin by wishing all our readers a VERY HAPPY and PRODUCTIVE NEW YEAR!
Our club begins the year with a great deal of optimism; 2019 was a great year of service for us in our community and 2020 appears headed toward even greater accomplishments as we continue to focus our service efforts on Child Safety, Health, and Education in Northern Thailand!
Where we are at the end of 2019
CMIRC ended 2019 with record membership, closing the year with twenty-eight members! We currently have six active service projects focused on children: Mae Tao Clinic/Child Development Center/Child Protection Project in Mae Sot, Children’s Water Safety and Drowning Prevention Program in Chiang Mai and Phrao, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) B.K. Kee Patient House in Chiang Mai, Children’s Winter Clothing and School Supply Program serving remote villages all over Northern Thailand, English Language Cultural Exchange Program at BEAM Education Foundation in Chiang Mai, and our new Child and Maternal Health Screening Program operating in Chiang Mai Province. Our Children’s Vision Screening Project in the Chiang Mai Municipal Schools is still not ready to be restarted, but perhaps a year called 20/20 will be a good omen for a vision program restart!
