Bring Healthy Smiles to Children

Dental hygiene education is critical in preventing serious, long term and life threatening complications that come from poor oral hygiene such as high blood pressure, bone loss, diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. Mundo Exchange teams up with local schools in rural Issan, Thailand that coordinate with the government to provide not only dental care, but also educate the children on how to properly brush and take care of their teeth. With your donations these children and their teachers are also able to walk out the door not only with clean and healthy smiles, but also a new toothbrush, dental hygiene supplies, and the knowledge of how to use them!

Sponsor Education Through CEMIK

CEMIK (translated into English as Center of Education for Maya Ixil Kids) is a small school tucked away in the high mountainous town of Chajul, Guatemala. This school is funded solely by Mundo Exchange and donors like you. The funds provide education for Maya children in both Spanish and local Ixil languages, learning how to read and write and learning about their rich Maya heritage and indigenous rights. This free of charge school exists for children of families who are too poor to afford the $25/year cost of public school. Become a proud supporter with us!

Build A Home

Many homes in rural areas are built haphazardly and with scrap materials rather than a solid foundation. Homes like these offer little to no protection from the elements and intruders, and families live in a high stress environment of fear and discomfort. Mundo Exchange works with local governments to assist these families and either build a new home or renovate their current one to make it safer.

Provide Support to Those Suffering From HIV/AIDS

Over 450,000 people are reportedly living with HIV in Thailand, putting the country at one of the highest prevalence rates in Asia and the Pacific. Those individuals living with HIV/AIDS are highly stigmatized and discriminated against. often outcast from their families and communities, and their children often not allowed in schools. Mundo Exchange works with the local hospital to provide emotional support, food, clothing, transportation, and takes steps to ensure those living with HIV are not ostracized.

Elders

Despite Thailand’s collective mentality and value of familial support, many elders in Issan Thailand have no one to take care of them. Whether due to feelings of resentment or grown children having to seek work in far away areas such as Bangkok to support the family, many elders are left to fend for themselves in their old age. We visit these elders and bring food, blankets and other vital supplies, help make their homes safe and accessible, and, importantly, provide companionship and listen and learn about their past. Just one bag of rice will feed 2 people for a month and costs only $10. Spread care and compassion with us!

Support a Student

Many kids have only one uniform, worn daily; it gets dirty, torn, & stained and many students feel shame. Only $50 will give a child a new uniform school  shoes, & a greater sense of self pride.
