Assignments At The Border

LEAD Story 380

THAILAND – On the western border of Thailand, the pandemic has prevented students from crossing the border to receive medical care, vaccination, and lessons at La Salle Sangkhlaburi and Bamboo School.

Our teachers organized a special mission to bring the mobile classroom, school milk, and a small amount of money from the government to the hands of students and parents at the border. The teachers met with the families at the military security checkpoint called “Bann Bor Yi-Pun” (a historical Japanese army camp since WWII) and sugarcane plantations site at the Three Pagodas Pass in Myanmar.

The job was successfully done with the support from the military, who took care of the teachers’ safety while working in the area. (Text & Photos: Br. Danai Kingkan FSC)
