Ranong centre begins
After five years of working out of three rented centres scattered around the southern Thai town of Ranong, the Marist Mission will soon move into their own purpose built ‘Marist Education and Community Centre’. MMR Director,Fr Kevin Medilo, reports:
‘The Centre will serve as a school for over 150 poor Burmese migrant children and hundreds of adult migrant workers as well as a centre for HIV/AIDS outreach and Online University study.
‘As construction proceeds, fundraising continues as we work to raise the remainder of the total construction cost. Many thanks for our generous donors and benefactors who make our dream a reality.’
The Marist Mission at Ranong was established with the help of the Marist Mission Centre. Australian Marist donors continue to support the development.
