Vision and Mission
How it started
Soon after the first officially reported Aids case in Thailand in 1984, the increase in HIV/Aids cases and new infections grew in an alarming rate. Government, NGOs, with or without external assistance, made concerted efforts to curb the epidemic and to provide care to the infected persons and their affected families. The British organization ‘Christian Outreach’ was one of them. It responded with a care project. The initial work focused on home based family care for the infected and affected family members including relatives and communities, supporting them to care for the sick and for the orphans, widows and others left behind by demised relatives as a result of HIV/Aids. In 2013 Natasja and Jan-Peter Kelder to over the leadership of Siam-Care Foundation.
In 1996 ‘Christian Outreach’ was handed over to Thai nationals and continued under the name ‘Siam-Care’. The Foundation was first registered in the Netherlands, but as of June 2005 Siam-Care is a Thai Foundation, registered under the Ministry of Interior (Kor.Thor 1446). Siam-Care Foundation has official status as NGO working on HIV/Aids . In 2011 it also acquired official status as human rights and human trafficking issues foundation.
What do we try to achieve?
Our vision is to fight for equal rights, opportunities, and treatment for children and families affected by poverty and/or HIV/Aids, until Thailand is HIV-free.
How do we realize our goals?
Siam-Care helps children at risk and their families, to develop psychosocially, physically, financially, and spiritually until they can take care of themselves (again).
