H.R.H. Princess Madeleine visits DEPDC

On April 11th, 2008 DEPDC had the honour of hosting Princess Madeleine of Sweden. The Princess was interested in seeing the projects that World Childhood Foundation has funded. She was also interested in interacting with the children and seeing the daily activities of DEPDC. Her Royal Highness Queen Silvia of Sweden has been a long time supporter of World Childhood foundation, who are generous donors to DEPDC.

The Princess came to visit the DEPDC centre in Mae Sai, Thailand where the youth leaders of the Mekong Youth Net (MYN) students performed local traditional dances. The students were also able to show the Princess the weaving, art and other activities that they had been a part of.

After visiting MaeSai, the Princess was escorted to the Mekong Regional Indigenous Child Rights Home (MRICRH) in  Chiang Khong where she was able to interact with the children there and share a meal with Alinda Suya and Sompop Jantraka, the director and founder of DEPDC.

We were honoured to have Princess Madeline come to visit both the Mae Sai and the Chiang Khong centre. It was a special day for both the children and the staff.
