2. Help Us Get the Word Out Please add your name to our mailing list so that we can update you on the various projects being undertaken for the orphanages, schools and our related charities, and also any special needs that may arise from time to time. Please tell your friends, family, colleagues and associates about us and the issues facing the children of Laos. The more people we are able to make aware, the greater support we can provide. 3. "One for One plus 20,000 kip for the Children" Book Exchange The "One for One plus 20,000 kip for the Children" Book Exchange is open from 10 am to 12 noon and then 2pm to 6pm every day.

Bring good used children's clothing to Ruth in Luang Prabang If you have any used children's clothing and/or shoes - and space in your travel bags - Lao-kids collects these items for donation to the very poor Aka villages in Luang Nam Tha Province. Just bring them to Ruth at the Book Exchange and she will arrange for their distribution to the children. It doesn't matter how old the items are, as long as they are in good condition.
Adult clothing is also welcome as we can always find someone who needs clothes! 5. Sponsor a Monthly Delivery to the Local Orphanage If you want to sponsor a complete monthly delivery to the local orphanage - at a cost of around US$1700 - we will most certainly assist you. We will take you to the suppliers and purchase the goods, then we will go to the orphanage to hand out the goods. Usually this is done by people who have fund-raised before they leave home and have a dedicated purpose for the money they have raised. You need to contact us in advance in order to arrange permission with the orphanage and let the supplier know about the bulk purchase to be made. 6. Knit Baby Bonnets, Tops and / or Socks If you are interested in knitting baby bonnets, tops or socks to be given to new-born babies, please see the knitting patterns in our July and December 2013 Newsletters (accessed from the Newsletters page of this web site). Note that, as there are some issues with mailing items to Laos, please contact us by email to discuss the best way to get the baby items to us.
Thank you very much for your support.
Your donations go directly to support the children
and the work of the orphanages, ethnic schools and our partner charities.
