The Phuket Sunshine village is a residential community constructed for less fortunate children in Phuket province. It is fully owned & directed by the Phuket Sunshine Village Foundation, a local non-governmental organization that was set up in 2005, following the Tsunami disaster.
Started as an initiative from the Lions Club Phuket Andaman Sea who rapidly joined forces with Childwatch Phuket to bring the project to life. The Foundation received the support of thousands of donors from around the globe and was subsequently able to buy its own land in Koh Sirae, an area that was particularly hit by the disaster.
Thanks to the large support of the French Red Cross, a small village made of a main building and 6 semi-detached houses was then build, and officially opened on the 29th of June 2007. It has been the home of over hundred children ever since.
