Anyway if anyone would like to help him, it would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know and I will pass on your thoughts or money or whatever you can do for him. I will try to get more infomation about him, but I would greatly appreciate it if some people were willing to help him rebuild his life.

Hi - now it is 13 Apr (Thai New Year). No one has responded to this message or offered in help. That is OK. But it would be really good if some-one who had a little bit of spare cash would help this student. If you contact me at email@example.com I can organize a way to get money or help to him. Thanks. Paul
Thai people and Kanjana in particular don't normally consider it polite to trouble other people with their personal problems. I think she must be quite worried about this boy because she is asking for help. Some money for him would be most helpful. Thanks for any help.
Update - 8 May - I haven't received anything at all to help Kanjana's student. Kanjana and I will see what we can do for him when I get home.
Update from Thailand - On Sunday I went to the village that Kanjana teaches at with her. The boy mentioned above was there. He was still visibly upset. The Thai government is building him a new house and he travels often to check on it. Sounds like his family survived but many of the surrounding families did not. Kanjana has already been giving him money and I also gave him 1000 Baht to help with this week's travel costs.
OH - now my friend Dave has sent some money to help. THANKYOU VERY VERY MUCH. Kon Jai Dii Maak Khrap.
