Thailand: Heifer brings a better future
In 1993, Asu's mother died while visiting family in Thailand. Asu crossed from Burma for the funeral, met Yuri and settled in Klon Mai, Thailand. There was little work and little food. "For my labor, I could only earn 25 bhat a day," said Asu. That's less than a dollar. To make it through the dry season, the family was forced to forage for food in the jungle. "Sometimes, it wasn't enough." Now, thanks to Heifer, the Lahuna family has enough food. "Since we became project members, I can see that our health has improved," said Asu. "I think it's not only because of more food, but, because we are more secure, our mental health is better also."
