How We Help
Bottles4Life works around the clock, learn how.
In addition to our ambulance service in Mae Sot, Bottles 4 Life has also provided 20 meals a day to parents of newborns in the ICU at Mae Sot General hospital. By hiring a chef to provide 2 healthy vegetarian meals per day to parents who have little resources and often sleep on the floors of the hospital grounds, we’re able to provide a little relief and comfort during a distressing time. To date, we’ve provided more than 2320 meals. We further this comfort by holding worship sessions.
We also do community support, especially to the women of Mae Sot, by providing medication and holding health seminars on nutrition, hygiene, and having healthy pregnancies.
Collecting bottles is not only a way for our supporters to donate, but a part of our initiative in the Mae Sot community as well. Plastic waste is a big issue, and by providing recycling bins, we are able to help the environment by reducing waste, and the residents by providing funding collected from recycling the bottles.
This year, we are undertaking two very special projects a school garden project and a sanatorium project to provide healthcare and a healthy lifestyle.
Through the school gardens, which we’ll place across Thailand and Myanmar, we’ll tackle nutrition, agriculture, and sustainability, ensuring that the region’s most vulnerable have access to food in the form of fruits and vegetables. Our pilot project will enable us to scale this movement across other parts of the 10/40 window.
The sanitarium will cater to people recovering from or receiving treatment for chronic illnesses. We’ll aim to provide holistic healthcare services to the aged, while integrating healthy lifestyle modification training, like cooking classes, physical activity sessions, and hydrotherapy. We hope to make an impact on communities by empowering people with the knowledge and skills to make healthier lifestyle choices.
