COVID 19 RELIEF CARE PACKAGES
It is important to us not to lose focus during this time of crisis and continue to help those vulnerable populations most in need in our Thailand and Guatemala communities. Many in Isan and Chajul regions live in extreme poverty. They live hand to mouth daily and are faced with starvation while struggling for survival and higher suseptability to diseases like dengue and now covid due to living conditions. YOU can help us give care packages for just $40!
Each care package includes basic survival and hygiene essentials for a family:
- clean water
- cooking oil
- non perishable food
toothpaste and toothbrushes
- antibacterial soap
- laundry powder
- disinfectant cleaner
Not everyone has a secure home to retreat to. Many people we assist live with extended family in homes that lack proper doors, windows, sometimes even walls. The goal of these packages is to keep those who are most susceptible in the community to disease, to starvation, and to breakdowns in mental health remain as safe as possible. Each care package contains food as well as hygiene essentials to not only keep families fed but also to maintain a sense of dignity for themselves as they face job loss and the task of seeking new employment.
One care package costs just $40 to make.
We cannot do this without your help. Every dollar helps bring critical aid and relief to those who need it the most. Please donate today.
TRAVEL ADVISORY THAILAND
February 8, 2021
Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, Mundo Exchange has decided to temporarily suspend our volunteer program in Thailand.
We will not be accepting any in-person volunteers for the time being. At the moment Thailand has partially closed its borders to tourists, with anyone who is able to make it in is subject to a 14 day quarantine and pre-approved visa. We will be keeping a careful eye on the news about the borders and the virus. Even though the borders are beginning to re-open, Thailand is experiencing it’s second wave of the virus outbreak. We have chosen to err on the side of caution both for our international community and local, especially since many of our volunteers end up in schools. We will let you know as soon as our volunteer program resumes. In the meantime, we ARE in need of vritual volunteers!
Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe!
We need your help to make a difference. Here’s some ways to get involved.

We consistently have a variety of ongoing community development projects, which are only accomplished with your help! Give to a specific project or country. Or just let us decide where it’s most needed!

Adopt an Elder
Elders in Thailand live in poverty and struggle daily. Many of them live in broken down homes, alone with no support systems, and often begging for food. All elders deserve to be treated with respoect and live the end of their lives with dignity. Adopt an elder today and your monthly donation can help make that happen.
We are always accepting volunteers in Thailand, and would love to have you share in the experience of changing lives. Learn more about our volunteer program and join us as a volunteer.
