The Pattaya Orphanage Trust launched its new website today at: www.pattayaorphanage.co.uk . The site will connect supporters in the UK and around the world with the work of the Trust and the beneficiaries of their support; orphaned, disabled and street children in Pattaya, Thailand. Weekly updates with news from the Orphanage and the other projects, including real stories of some of the children helped by the Trust, ensure that visitors are kept informed. A host of other features are available including; film clips, songs from the children and an online version of 'go-ball', a game played by partially sighted children at the Orphanage. Visitors to the site are invited to sign up to a free monthly enewsletter and there is a facility to make secure online donations. Volunteers, who play a vital role in the Orphanage's work in Thailand, are encouraged to complete an online enquiry from which is accessed directly by the volunteer manager in Thailand. Andrew Scadding, Chief Executive of the Pattaya Orphanage Trust, said: "Designed to reach a wide audience, the site combines appealing design elements using the Trust's striking identity, with easily accessible information. We will be continually updating and adapting the site so existing and future supporters can get more involved and help us with our work." The Pattaya Orphanage in Thailand provides a loving home and education to orphaned and neglected children and disabled young people. The Orphanage gives 700 children and young people each year an education, a home and the chance to lead an independent life. Associated projects include the School for Deaf Children, The School for Blind Children, The Street Kids Project, The Drop In Centre, The Vocational School and the Job Placement agency.
