Visiting Ban Rom Sai
If you would like to visit Ban Rom Sai...
Ban Rom Sai has its doors open to the public, in an effort to increase awareness regarding children with HIV in Thailand. We would like visitors to keep in mind that Ban Rom Sai is a home to the children and we only allow visitors on a pre-arranged basis, to limit disruption to the daily routine of the children.
Because of this, we would appreciate your understanding that sometimes it may not be possible to visit the home.
If you would like to visit Ban Rom Sai, please make sure to apply for visitation before you come. It is not possible to visit Ban Rom Sai on a drop-in or ad hoc basis. Please respect this rule.
In some cases, it may not be possible to visit with the children, since they have school or after-school activities or field trips.
Visitors must seek prior permission for taking photos or video at Ban Rom Sai. Some of the children have weakened immune systems and therefore it is easy for them to contract various illnesses. If you fall ill prior to visiting Ban Rom Sai, please respect the health of these children and let us know in advance. We may, in severe cases, have to re-schedule your visit. Please be advised that we may ask you to wear a mask during the visit. Please ask your taxi or tuk tuk driver to wait for you outside of the Ban Rom Sai gate, when you come for your visit.
Do not have them drive into the compound and wait for you there. In the past, we have unfortunately had, some bad experiences with drivers.
Some have "interrogated" the children or staff and made inappropriate comments, hurting their feelings.
Thank you for your cooperation.
