What is Baan Santisuk?
Baan Santisuk (Home of Peace and Happiness) is a Christian orphanage located in Phang Nga, South Thailand. Baan Santisuk is a "family style" children's home which means each of our four homes function like a family with children raised by live in Thai houseparents. Each of our children grow up with a sense of belonging to a loving and caring family. Founded shortly after the great Asian Tsunami of December 2004, and as a result of reaching out to the many children at risk during that time, Baan Santisuk rescues children who have lost one or both parents or who have been abused or abandoned. The vision of Baan Santisuk is not just about rescuing children, but importantly is also about providing a safe and loving home.
A Greater Purpose
Baan Santisuk is dedicated to ministering to every aspect of a child's life. So as well as physical care we provide spiritual care to each of our children. It is Baan Santisuk's goal to raise these children up in a Christian environment and share the good news of Jesus Christ with each of them. As they are growing up physically, Baan Santisuk seeks to grow these children up spiritually as well so that someday they might reach their own people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the daily sharing of Christian principles as well as Bible study and mission outreach, the children grow up with a sense of God's calling on their life. When they reach adulthood they are equipped to answer that call. Baan Santisuk endeavors to raise these children up to be the next generation of Christian witnesses in Thailand.
A Growing Ministry
Baan Santisuk is located on two acres of land along the coast of Phang Nga province. Situated in the midst of a Muslim area, in one of the least evangelized areas of the world, As well as running the orphanage, Baan Santisuk is also reaching out with the love of Jesus to the local community through various community development projects and through sponsoring children from low income families by providing money for school tuition, supplies, and uniforms. It is Baan Santisuk's goal to shine the light of Jesus through many creative expressions of God's love and compassion.
