Deutsche Bank volunteers support past offenders

May 2016 │ Thailand

As part of the Deutsche Bank’s Born to Be programme, Deutsche Bank Bangkok is supporting the children at House of Blessing, operated by the Christian Prison Ministry Foundation (CPMF), a non-profit organisation in Bangkok.

CPMF is a Christian-founded organisation that helps former prisoners, young offenders, and children who were born in prison regardless of their nationality and religion. The foundation takes care by providing children with necessities, such as shelter, food, and education. It also organises training, mentoring and helping the beneficiaries to adjust and re-adapt before stepping back into the society.



The Bangkok branch organized two activities, and donated daily necessities for the children and youth.



One Saturday in late April, 30 volunteers from the Bangkok branch hosted a lunch with the former young prisoners and offenders at the House of Blessing, with the support of CPMF.
The volunteers spent a valuable and meaningful time, singing and playing games with the beneficiaries. After the activities, the children performed song and dance to thank the Bank for the support. Small kindergarten level children also joined the group singing and dancing with the Hmong hill tribe youth.



Supakit, whose musical education Deutsche Bank is sponsoring, also performed a piano solo piece. Happiness and energy were in abundance.



With many of the children’s parents in prison, most of the children spend their time at the Foundation, and few had ever been to a beach. Two weeks after hosting the lunch, 10 Deutsche Bank volunteers organized an excursion for the children, taking them to visit a sheep farm and the Chao Samran beach at Petchburi province before the start of the new school semester. The children particularly enjoyed feeding the sheep. The volunteers also played games with the children at the beach.
