Just bumping this quiz, which starts at 7pm tonight. Over 16,000 Baht's worth of prizes - should be a great night.

Win or lose, it's all in a great cause.

From hi-so Hua Hin to jungle poverty

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general ... le-poverty

Malaria. A worm infestation. A serious burn to a child’s leg, caused by contact with a motorcycle exhaust pipe, that had been treated with toothpaste.

These were some of the cases treated in a remote village on the Thai-Myanmar border by the private charity Jungle Aid.
The nonreligious nonprofit, based in the beach resort city of Hua Hin, operates free medical clinics, offers educational services, delivers used clothing and mosquito nets, and improves sanitation facilities in villages populated by ethnic Karen people.

More than 100,000 of them live in poor villages or camps in the mountains that straddle Thailand and Myanmar, often without access to government services and a reliable source of income.
May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil know`s you`re dead!
