Koh Chang Volunteering – Animals and Kids

For the charitably minded, these two very deserving organisations are happy to chat with you about volunteering, whether for just a day, week or longer.

The island authorities also run beach and roadside clean days and divers are always needed for the underwater annual clear-up.

Koh Chang Animal Project

Klong Son – inland

Non-profit animal organisation run since 2002 by Lisa McAlonie which looks after stray and abandoned pets, mostly dogs and cats, but sometimes other animals too. The clinic, located on the way to the waterfall, has a small surgery and lab, with facilities for pre/post operation. Visiting veterinarians are always welcome, with long term stays particularly useful, as are day visits from tourists who would like to help, and all donations.

Cambodian Kids Care

Klong Prao – northern end, opposite Ramayana Resort

Cambodian Kids Care – Koh Chang (CKC) provide free education and a hot meal every school day to the most underprivileged children on the island. These children (mostly of imigrant Cambodian parents) are unable to attend regular Thai schools because of their parents work status. Without CKC, kids as young as 4 years old would spend all day alone in the jungle or at dangerous work places without an education.

Visit their web page at www.ckckohchang.com to volunteer, donate or find out more about this very worthy cause.
