ZOE: Year-End Update 2016
ZOE International rescues and cares for orphans and trafficked children, primarily in Thailand. Our support is providing preventative healthcare (nutrition, medical, and dental care) for the 75 long-term children in their care.
In 2016, TFish support enabled ZOE children to receive essential preventative healthcare, including flu vaccines, vitamins, and de-worming medicine.
Vitamins: We provided one complete multi-vitamin per child per day for one year.
The ZOE kitchen prepares over 450 meals per day for their children, staff, and volunteers. Over the years they have made great strides in improving the nutritional level for our children. Improvements include having fresh fruit at every dinner meal and a box of milk for each child with the morning meal. Although the amount of food is plentiful, they believe that there are certain minerals and vitamins missing from the children’s diet. For example, vitamin C and iron are lacking due to lower citrus and protein consumption. Having a full complement of necessary vitamins and minerals is essential during the critical developmental years of children and teens.
We are pleased to announce a new partnership with ZOE, a Christian organization that strives to reach every person with the love of God and rescue every child from human trafficking. Through their comprehensive prevention, intervention, and restoration programs, they’re able to transform each child from her past and give her an opportunity for a better future.
With generous support, ZOE began construction on three multipurpose buildings, which were completed in 2010. These buildings have dormitories for every age, vocational training centers, staff offices, and a kitchen with a dining room. ZOE continues to make improvements to the lives of the children they rescue from human trafficking and will build additional safe houses and housing as God provides. Since 2010, ZOE has provided comprehensive aftercare for more than 115 rescued children in Thailand.
ZOE International Foundation, Thailand became official in 2007. This status enables the anti-human trafficking organization to purchase land and build facilities as a protected foundation and safeguard for its partners. Through the years, ZOE has made solid relationships with government leaders who have endorsed the ZOE leadership and the work they are accomplishing in the nation of Thailand.
ZOE Children's Homes in Thailand currently cares for 75 children on a long-term basis. These are children who are orphans or have been rescued from human trafficking and have no other place to go. ZOE's primary goal is to unite children with loving family who are wiling and able to care for them. However, in some cases, the children simply cannot return to family members. This may be because the family is complicit in the trafficking of the child or that there are no family members.
