A Lifelong Dedication in Helping Others

It’s never been a question of “What can we do?” but “When can we start?”
Over 34 years of marriage, Evelind Schecter and Michael Shafer have made a commitment beyond their wedding vows always to helping others in need.

While still in the United States, whether it was providing a loving home or emotional and financial safety to children and families from around the world or America, Michael and Evelind have never turned their backs to helping others in need.

So it was to no surprise to friends and family when Michael and Evelind sold their possessions, left their prestigious careers in New Jersey and moved to Phrao, Thailand to start Warm Heart to help others in need.
Michael and Evelind saw the potential to bring their love of community and professional backgrounds to establish an organization that could truly make a difference in the lives of many.

They knew they had to be in the heart of it all to build trust and relationships with the local rural community. 6 years and 60+ children (and many pets and a farm) later, Michael and Evelind have made Phrao their home.

The shining example of what can be accomplished has drawn many volunteers who help run the extensive programs.

Michael and Evelind have worked hard at establishing strong relationships with local partnerships who contribute time and materials for special projects.

Warm Heart’s Sponsor a Child program helps cover the costs of the many children that are living in the Children’s Homes, and donations, both small and large, help keep Warm Heart moving forward.

Warm Heart works collectively to make positive impacts on all those whom it touches. Helping others is their primary objective.
