Last weekend, members and friends of the Thai Austrian Society came together in Chiang Mai for a "Stammtisch". On that occasion, the donation of THB 159.000 was handed over to the founder of Baan Doi, Ms. Barbara Meisl. Thanks to the donations made at the Heuriger and the Christmas brunch last year, we could raise this amount of money which will support the child care center near Chiang Rai.
