Life Raft provides life-saving holistic assistance to refugees in Bangkok, Thailand. Our mission is to enable refugees to live with hope and purpose in the midst of all circumstances.
Our refugees have fled persecution in their homelands, but still struggle to survive in Thailand. They are forbidden from working, don’t speak Thai, and are incredibly isolated.
After a month of living in Thailand, entire refugee families are often arrested and crammed into cages at the International Detention Center.
The foundation of our work is our advocacy program, which connects people in Bangkok with refugees. These advocates guide our organization to best meet refugees’ needs. They also send updates on refugees’ needs and statuses to supporters outside of Bangkok.
