Welcome

  • Lioncare Project 19 June 2022

    “On June 19th, 2022, the Lion care team, headed by Mark, Prim, Proud and Heidi, represented LHS to present 3 sponsorships to HIV positive students.”

    The first sponsorship was given to Ms. A, who was infected with HIV since she was 2 years old. She is now 26 years old, with only 5 more modules before graduation. LHS has been sponsoring her for a while now, to which she is very grateful for and serving to motivate her in her studies. Her current aspiration is to quickly graduate to be able to find work to support her grandmother and younger siblings. Even when inflicted with HIV, Ms. A is still able to be the sole breadwinner and head of her family. The second sponsorship offered was given to Mr. B. Mr. B is currently 22 years old, whom had only been able to detect his HIV condition when he was 13. At the time, he felt very unjust, thus became full of hate towards everyone. However, with the help and support of his mother and nurses, he was able to over come that mentality. He came to think more positively about life and felt more motivated to study. He is now left with only one more year in Computer Science faculty before graduation. Lastly, the third sponsorship was given to Ms. C, age 15, studying in high school, and is living with her grandmother. She is a very sweet and cheerful child. She has the determination to study, to have discipline, and to live life to the best of her abilities to lessen the burden on her grandmother. The LHS team hopes that this sponsorship will enable these 3 students to pursue their dreams and continue to be a role model for other HIV students.

  • Additional Projects 5 June 2022

    “The LHS worked with Community Development Officers in the Lam Sonthi District of Lopburi province to assist low-income households.”

    These households often survive on disability payments, old-age living allowances, and welfare cards. We found that many of their houses were dilapidated and falling apart. Some homes had to be completely rebuilt, while others just needed to be fixed up, whether that may involve constructing a new bathroom, or providing beds, pillows, and mosquito nets. The funds the officials had were not enough to carry out the project, so the Lionheart Society provided funds from our veggie sales and from those who believed in the cause. This allowed us to improve the quality of life of the people living in the area. Pictures below are the conditions the aforementioned households were found living in.

  • Veggies from the Heart Project November 2021– May 2022

    “The LHS has been growing organic vegetables as part of the ‘Veggies from the Heart’ project for the past 10 years. The proceeds from sales are used to fund our various projects which include”

    Donating scholarships to students who are HIV positive from birth, assisting those with leprosy, and supporting poorly funded schools in the Nakorn Ratchasima province through the Student Lunch Project which aims to provide students with enough food to eat at school along with some excess to bring home. Apart from this, our ‘Teach to Reach’ project involves us educating and helping children in the Hua Rot Jak slum community. Our veggies are sold at many schools, hospitals, and businesses that back our cause. All support would be greatly appreciated.

  • Lioncare Project 31 October 2021

    “The Lionheart Society recently granted “P” - a student who is HIV Positive from birth - a sum of money with which they can complete their fourth year of college. ”

    We have supported P since high school. P had been working as a server at a restaurant for a living, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the restaurant to close down. Due to this, P’s grandmother had to cook curry puffs while P sold them at markets for 1 baht each. It was difficult for them to make a living and harder still for P to pay their college’s tuition fee. Furthermore, P’s college was constantly postponing exams due to the pandemic, making them unable to graduate quickly. The LHS hopes to reduce P’s burden with this grant of money, and we hope that they are able to secure a

  • Additional Projects 9 March 2021

    “During the COVID-19 pandemic, the LHS has supported farmers from various provinces in central Thailand and Isan, including Suphan Buri, Chai Nat, and Ubon Ratchathani. ”

    We helped said farmers achieve more sustainability through means such as growing organic vegetables, as well as farming fish, chicken, frogs, and crickets. These practices alongside rice farming will help to provide the farmers and their families with a reliable source of food, along with economic sustainability during this difficult time.
