PHUKET HAS BEEN GOOD TO US FOUNDATION SET UP FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE TSUNAMI in KAMALA, NEED OUR SUPPORT





The Tsunami, in Phuket on the 26th December 2004, destroyed a lot of this beautiful Island off Thailand. Most of the area of Kamala was damaged leaving many children homeless and without parents.  I was at the Amanpuri and still have memories of this terrible natural disaster.  Of course I was lucky enough to be at this amazingly rich hotel that is built high up on rocks, I was lucky enough to be in my room safe.  The rest in poorer areas suffered huge losses.  They have re built their school and have all the children living here who suffered, and have no families that can look after them.  They require teachers and help still,  and are grateful to anybody who can help them out.  The children are recovering under the watchful eye of Tina Hall,  Director of Operations, who runs The Coconut Club and the English Language section.  Tina has given up her life to help these children.  I understood why, forget the rich and  the powerful, this is much more meaningful, helping these children who were so full of life and laughter is indeed a magical experience. If anybody wishes to teach please get in touch with her www.phukethasbeengoodtous.org.
I shall continue to help this ancient peaceful culture get back on its feet again in any way I can.
