Carly and Tresne head to Thailand to Volunteer at Home and Life Orphanage 1 hour north of Phuket, Phang nga.

There are 26 children that live at the orphanage. Each with their own story and amazing personality. We spent a lot of time playing with the kids, teaching them English, doing craft Christmas cards for them to sell to tourists to fund the orphanage.

Every week they bake banana bread, bread and muffins to sell at the markets every Sunday to help support the children with their school fees, fuel costs and food.

It was such a heart wrenching experience for the both of us, we grew so close to the kids and workers it was extremely hard to leave. Although you would think the children would be a little down from their unfortunate situations, they are the happiest, well mannered and loving kids going!

We will be heading back again soon, hopefully sooner than later!
