ATFX Helps a Thai Children’s Home Thrive Despite COVID-19

The ATFX staff in Thailand teamed up with IBs when visiting the children’s home and was part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.

ATFX visited the Wat Don Chan Organization located in Chiang Mai and donated to the children’s home run by the organization. Our team in Thailand identified the children’s home as being in great need due to dwindling donations amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The charitable organisation has suffered a significant drop in donations due to the coronavirus pandemic and is struggling to fund its operations. The precarious financial position the foundation faces puts over 700 children at risk and is why the ATFX Thai team felt they needed to help, hence the donation.

The Wat Don Chan Organization serves children who have been orphaned as a result of the HIV/AIDS scourge and have nowhere else to go. Some of the children at the home are there because their parents are in prison. Most come from the Hill Tribe areas around Chiang Mai, and the home is their last resort.

The ATFX staff in Thailand teamed up with IBs when visiting the children’s home and was part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme. The team has also made other donations to Thai hospitals and fire departments involved in fighting wildfires in parts of Thailand. 

We’re committed to helping the communities in which we operate and leaving them better than we found them. Our goal is to create equal opportunities for people from all walks of life. We would like to urge other businesses and individuals to step in and help the Wat Don Chan Organization. We are currently working to implement a sustainable community plan for the organization given their lack of resources.  

ATFX launched a global youth support programme in 2018 that aims to provide support and assistance to youth from underprivileged backgrounds so they can realise their full potential. We support and care for the children, and aim to equip them with life skills so they can face life’s challenges with a positive attitude.

The programme is currently operational in Thailand, Malaysia, UK and more. There are also plans to reach more countries and help more vulnerable youth.
