Journey to Warm Heart
Jambo comes from the Lisu Village of La Wu.
La Wu is a small village on the Thai-Myanmar border known for violence and its location on a drug-trafficking route. In 2010 the Thai military requested Warm Heart take in seven children from La Wu.
Jambo was not among these children, but at age 12 his older sister On was selected to be the “House Mother” responsible for caring for them!
After seeing the care and education their older child was receiving, Jambo’s parents asked if Jambo could live at Warm Heart too.
Now Jambo’s older brother Nok Geo is also here, living at the Warm Heart Annex.
Since arriving at the Children’s Home Jambo has become a leader among the younger boys.
If volunteers are trying to pull together an activity, Jambo is always the first to join as the others will surely follow.
Jambo is very active – he loves to play soccer and frisbee.
In school his favorite classes are math and Thai.
Jambo hopes to become a soldier when he grows up.
