Friends Of Thai Daughters Visitors In Wellington

Gayson and Jun with Woodstock.

Visitors from Friends of Thai Daughters were in Wellington area recently to experience the community and help promote the organization, which is changing lives half a world away. Joanne Weiner of Palm Beach International Academy, who sponsors one young woman, and Kimberly Van Kampen, who sponsors another, hosted them for two weeks in Wellington. For the last 15 years, the organization has taken in dozens of young women, often as young as nine years old, saving them from that country’s rampant sex-trafficking operations. Friends of Thai Daughters changes their lives by helping transform them into thriving, confident women. The organization is working to build sponsors for each of the girls in the Palm Beach area.
