IN CHIANG RAI
RESCUE TEENS FROM DRUG & HUMAN TRAFFICKING
IU MIEN HIGHLANDER COMMUNITY
Challenges: A Iu Mien highlander community in Chiang Rai province (in the infamous Golden Triangle) suffers heavily from drug abuse, drug trade, and related crimes. Especially children and teens became targets of unscrupulous criminals.
Solution: We establish a Christian congregation with Sunday School and daily after-school supervision in north Thailand's infamous Golden Triangle.
Up to 60 children and teens received daily training and counsel. As of 2020, most of the children and teens in the village are drug-free. As a result, even non-Christian parents send their children to the Avoda evening training.
