Home for Hope: Program for mother and babies
Located in Topland, near the by-pass road in Phuket Town
The infant mortality rate among poor migrant girls and women is extremely high in Phuket. They give birth in local construction camps in unsanitary conditions without any medical assistance. The center in Phuket Town accommodates poor girls and women, giving them a safe and clean environment throughout their pregnancy, delivery and sees them through to post natal care. Periodically, up to 15 girls stay at any one time.
Overall Objective:To provide safe, clean accommodation and medical assistance for migrant women and girls living in the local camps throughout their pregnancy, delivery, and seeing them through to post natal care to therefore reduce the high infant mortality rate among migrant workers in Phuket.
