Vision Nationals partners with The Family Connection Foundation in Thailand to care for pregnant women and single mothers in desperate situations through Home of the Swallow.
The following excerpt is from Home of the Swallow’s webpage.
Home of the Swallow is a Christian organization that was established to help disadvantaged women and children in Thailand, primarily pregnant women and single mothers. Our vision is to reduce the number of children being given up for adoption, being abandoned, sold or otherwise placed in the care of people other than the birth parents.
Fundamental to the work of Home of the Swallow is the belief that true and transforming change can only come through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is our aim to help facilitate this relationship by assisting women and their children that are lacking social, financial and emotional support within the framework of a residential program.
We help the women to gain the independence needed to be able to care for themselves and their child by teaching them parenting skills, vocational skills such as sewing and jewelry making, financial management, cooking skills and general life skills. We also provide counseling, spiritual and emotional support as well as all necessities such as food, housing and medical supplies.
Thus far, Home of the Swallow has helped over 20 women and their children through the residential program and another 20+ families with children through Home of the Swallow’s Nursery, providing affordable safe child care for parents while they are at work.
The women at Home of the Swallow create beautiful jewelry and crafts as a way to generate income. These make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers! For more information, or to make a purchase please email Hos.
