Pattaya Sports Club help Women’s Shelter

Another Great Charity Story from Pattaya Sports Club

There are many problems in the world concerning the handicapped and underprivileged, and Thailand is no exception. But one area of concern, domestic violence in all its forms, is, possibly, avoidable. According to statistics, some 19000 plus women and children were abused in some way by their husband/partner/family in 2007 and this figure has increased alarmingly since then. but that only includes those cases that were reported. Another statistic showed that about 60% of women living outside the major cities were abused either sexually, physically or mentally and this has also led to significant health problems. Thailand is not alone with this problem for it extends to every country in the world.

So what is the solution. There are centres available to ladies who feel they are unable to continue suffering in this way in many areas but, as you can gather, insufficient numbers.

The YWCA have now set up a centre in Pattaya to help combat, in a small way, this problem and that is to accommodate females between the ages of 7 to 25 years and the main objectives are:

1. To be a primary help centre for victims of sexual , mental and physical abuse.
2. To be a temporary shelter for those suffering from the above.

The YWCA will work closely with the Police, City Hall and experts from institutions who have experience in these matters. The ladies will stay anything from 1 day to 3 months but at the end of that period, if their problems have not been resolved, will be moved to a more permanent shelter in Bangkok.

Pattaya Sports Club are always happy to help the underprivileged and this centre is no exception. As you can imagine, there is a substantial cost in setting up a facility of this nature and PSC were only too happy to help the YWCA to continue the relationship we have developed over the years.

There is a full time staff member and YWCA have acquired the help of others to teach the ladies massage, hair dressing, cooking and computers with a view to them acquiring a position to help with their future.

To launch this initiative, a press conference was held at City Hall and was attended by the Mayor, Ittiphol Khunplome, many police officials and representatives of YWCA and Pattaya Sports Club.

So there is light at the end of the tunnel for just a few ladies, but there is still much to be done.
