Ellen and Sjaak from Maastricht


Over the past few years Ellen and Sjaak have been escaping the European winters in Maastricht and flying to sunny Chiang Mai for a couple of months. They had previously sponsored a young boy, Sittichai, through the Rejoice Scholarship programme.  This year they asked if it would be possible to travel with the Rejoice Outreach team and visit Sittichai so that they could give him a present for his 9th birthday which fell on 11th January 2016.

 MessiThe picture shows Sittichai with his mum and Ellen.  He insisted in modelling his new football shirt which he received for his birthday.

Later, Ellen and Sjaak visited the children of migrant workers at the day-care centre near Chiang Dao, after which they had lunch at their favourite spot, 'Chiang Dao Nest', before returning to Chiang Mai.
