Chi Chi Win
Chi Chi Win lives just outside the border town of Mae Sot in a small rural community. Her house does not have electricity or water and food is scarce. Her dad works in Bangkok most of the time and he sends money home as often as he can. Meantime, Chi Chi Win, her mum and baby brother are looked after by others within the community.
It has not been easy for the family since they have escaped from the poverty that they endured in Burma - work is not easy to come by and Chi Chi Win cries a lot, especially at night, meaning that they have found it difficult to settle into their new home.
But Stepping Stones, and our partners, Charis, are doing what they can to ensure that Chi Chi Win and her family get the help they need, both through the provision of regular therapy and food parcels.
