IN BANGRAK – Jan 2016

As can be seen from the photograph, all internal and external rendering has now been completed along with the majority of the internal electrical wiring. The next stage will be for the ceilings to be finished and then the windows and doors to be fitted. If there is anyone out there who could assist with the Landscaping at a later stage it will be much appreciated.

Once again on behalf of The Samui Special Needs Foundation a huge “Thank you” to everyone  for your past help, good luck and good health for 2016 and a wish for your continued support.
