Dararak lives in Thailand. She is 15 years old.
Dararak’s parents work as farmers and live in a village where there is no school. Dararak lives in a children’s home to have the chance to go to school.
In her letter she writes:
I went to a rice field with my father and my mother. We took care of our cows and buffalos. My mom grew crops and I watered the plants and fed food to the cows, buffalos, and fishes. After that I went back home.
Dear Dararak, thanks a lot – ขอบคุณ – for your letter and the lovely picture you drew! I can imagine that you like to be at the rice field with your Dad and your Mom and that it’s good to take care of your cows and buffalos. I hope that you often have the chance to spend time with your parents, to water the plants and to feed the animals. Lots of love, Karina
And also a big thank you to Thai Care e.V. and to Anne Brouer for sending Dararak’s letter to me and translating it into English!
