Journey to Warm Heart

Jidapa hails from Hui Kyeng Sang, a village not too far from the Children’s Homes.

Jidapa used to help her mother sell noodles at their Chiang Mai market stand, but her parents were often traveling to other cities for work.

This made attending school difficult for Jidapa and her older brother, NatDanai.

Their mother thought the two would have a better childhood and education if they could live at Warm Heart.


Jidapa is happy to have a best friend, Jangum, at Warm Heart to bond with over the difficulties of their lives before living at the Children’s Home.

In addition to talking, the girls love playing sports and board games together.

Jidapa loves to draw and do anything artistic.

Her favorite thing about being at Warm Heart is playing with Evelind’s cats.

Her best school subject is math and someday Jidapa hopes to be a teacher.
