The Khao Lak Community Appeal was launched in January 2005 in memory of six British friends who died in the tragic events of the Tsunami on Boxing Day 26th December 2004. They were staying in Khao Lak, the most devastated area in Thailand. The charity is also in recognition of the fantastic people of Khao Lak, who did so much to help survivors, having lost virtually everything themselves.
The Aim of The Khao Lak Community Appeal is to give back to the community in Khao Lak through improvements to Health Care and Education in this region of Thailand.
The Appeal Success
The response to the Appeal was fantastic. Thanks to the generosity and efforts of so many people we were able to raise over £1million. To those who did and gave so much, whatever size your contribution, we say a big thank you.
We still need your help!
The Khao Lak Community Appeal continues to fundraise for ongoing projects. Please see the New Projects page for what we’re currently up to, and take a look at the Events page for any up coming activities you might want to get involved in.
The khao lak community appeal is now researching into new project ideas for next year. The local government are helping us to distribute a questionnaire over the next couple of weeks; this should provide some insight into what the community think is lacking or what they feel needs improving. From there we can address the charities future plans and targets for our next project.
