Birthday – August 04, 2013
Vincent is a six year old student at the school who has been attending since he was 2 years old. Vincent’s father had a major stroke, and a few minor strokes, and has suffered brain injury. His mother comes from a poor farming family in the south-east of Thailand. Vincent’s mother has to work 7 days a week from 5am to 11pm to support Vincent and his father. Vincent’s father has continued to have seizures and complications from the stroke. His complete condition is unknown as they don’t have the money for brain scans and although the island locals have tried to raise money to help them, they are still paying off many hospital costs that they incurred through two hospital stays. After respite care with Claire and her family, Vincent is now being cared for by his parents again thanks to some wonderful people in the Koh Tao community who are helping to look after his well being. We are thrilled to have him back with his parents and thanks to his sponsors, he is still at school and doing very well! Vincent is now in Year 1! We are very proud of him. Without your support this wouldn’t be possible, so a big THANK YOU to you all!
