Journey to Warm Heart
Salan arrived at Warm Heart with a sense of urgency in 2010.
Hoping to break the circle of poverty and crime, the Thai Military asked Warm Heart to take in eight children from La Wu, a small village on the Thai-Myanmar border known for violence and its location on a drug-trafficking route.
Salan has one older sister and one younger brother that remain in La Wu.
Though Salan misses his family, three dogs and five pigs he left behind, he loves having friends, playing computer games, and watching cartoons at Warm Heart.
He is always involved in the after school pick-up soccer game.
In school, there isn’t a subject he doesn’t like. He loves math, Thai, music, computers, and social studies.
He has so many interests he doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up, but we know it will be something great!
