Manchester United footballing legend Bryan Robson paid a visit to our Peuan Peuan Thailand program activities in Bangkok earlier this month, writes Vuthaya Charoenpol, our country program director for Thailand. Robson, along with Man Utd Foundation Chief Executive John Shiels, was on a visit to UNICEF supported initiatives in the country and saw at first hand the work that our program does with vulnerable children and young people in Bangkok.
They visited the Pakkred Reception Home (Ban Phumvet) where our program works with boys and young men, both Thai and foreign, who have been rescued from the streets, and spent time talking to Friends-International staff and beneficiaries about the program.
As you can see from these photos (images courtesy UNICEF), the visitors were extremely interested in the work of Friends-International, and very appreciative of the positive impact it has upon the lives and futures of these young people. You can find out more about the Peuan Peuan program here.
