US group around Mrs. Cindy McCain visits the ASEAN Education Center

Upon arrival Mrs. McCain was greeted by HHN Foundation Thailand director Radchada Chomjinda and welcomed by our center’s children, who were lining the way up into the building, waving Thai and American flags as a sign of mutual friendship.
Our visitors were presented a short but tremendously cute dancing and singing performance by our children, who, besides having to stay longer at the center than usual that day, didn’t fail to touch the hearts of our guests with their charm. “Seeing you singing and dancing and having such a good time is really the highlight of my trip”, Mrs. McCain told the children as she was clearly touched by the affectionate welcome.
Following this, our guests had a chance to learn more about the center and our children, their life at the construction site camps and the way we support them with care and education. We also presented our MTU Mobile Training Unit, which regularly visits camps and impoverished communities to reach children that don’t attend our daycare program at the ASEAN Education Center.
The visit of Madame McCain, who was on a private trip to Asia, had been arranged by our partner A21, an internationally active NGO engaged in the fight against slavery and human trafficking.  We were especially happy to welcome Madame McCain here at our center as she and her group were the first American representatives to officially visit the new facility. The United States government, embassy and US-based NGOs have been among our most loyal and generous supporters in countless ways and since the earliest days of our foundation and the visit of Madame McCain reflects these strong ties.
Our thanks go to Mrs. McCain and her fellow company for their kind visit and interest in our work and also to A21 for their kind referral and support.
