About Childfriend

A Swedish foundation with a heart for children in Southeast Asia 

Om Childfriend

ChildFriend is a non-religious and non-political fundraising foundation. Based on the UN:s Convention on the Rights of the Child and on Christian values our purpose is to raise funds to rescue children at risk in South East Asia. The foundation has also admitted the activities previously managed by BaanChivitMai-Sweden, which was responsible for raising funds for an orphanage in Thailand.

Through Childfriend we have new opportunities to reach more vulnerable children in other parts of Southeast Asia. Thanks to the previous 30 years of running BaanChivitMai-Sweden we have a good foundation to expand our resources and expertise. Over the years we’ve been able to save hundreds of children and youths.

Our vision is to expand our work beyond the borders of Thailand. All over Southeast Asia there are children trapped in the sex industry, slavery and various humiliations and they desperately need us to act.
