Journey to Warm Heart
Jangun is the youngest of four siblings at Warm Heart, all the children of Khun Wan, manager of Warm Heart’s coffee demonstration farm in Lau Wu. (Her older sister Fang just set off for boarding school after two years at Warm Heart and her two older brothers live at the Warm Heart Annex.
Her father manages Warm Heart’s coffee nursery in the 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.
Knowing his children were in danger in La Wu, in 2012 Jangun’s father asked that she, her older sister Fang, and her older brother Poon be given spots at the Children’s Home.
Since arriving at Warm Heart, Jangun has excelled in school, particularly learning English. She is among the best English speakers and loves chatting with the volunteers.
She says the volunteers are her favorite part of living at the Children’s Home.
Jangun loves swimming, playing with her friends, and reading.
She hopes someday to speak multiple languages.
She looks up to Nit, one of Warm Heart’s college students, and someday will attend university like Nit.
