Scooters Bar on Soi 6 announced yesterday afternoon that they handed over a cheque to the Baan Kruja home in Pattaya, a centre that assists abused children and helps stop human trafficking, for 980,535 baht.
This was the amount they had custody of and was raised during a charity and appeal drive by many kind individuals both in person at the Scooters bar and donations from members of Pattaya based Facebook groups. Baan Kruja and their director, Mr. Pisorn Noja, has personally been thanking every single individual who helped make the children’s lives better and donated towards the cause on Facebook groups and in person.
The Baan Kruja organization, like many others in Pattaya, recently put out a public call to all local media to ask for more support during the current Covid-19 crisis as they had a reduced number of donations then usual because of the virus. Scooters Bar Soi 6 had been handling the funds from the Orphans Appeal donation drive for the center in conjunction with members of a local Facebook group and had been allocating funds on a monthly basis previously.
However, yesterday they made the decision to hand over the entire amount of funds in full to assist the Baan Kruja in this difficult time. We covered this call from the director of Baan Kruja for support, as did many other local Thai and English language media, below:

Scooters Bar Pattaya gave a huge thank you to all of the kindhearted people who bought t-shirts and donated to the Orphans Appeal. All remaining funds that were collected during the appeal have been transferred directly to Baan Kruja’s official bank account. The process was overseen by an independent Thai lawyer, the bar added.
Despite the Covid-19 Coronavirus and the current economic situation in Pattaya, people like those on Facebook who kindly donated to the campaign continue to make a difference in people’s lives and help during this very difficult situation for the Pattaya area.
