The Camillian missionaries came to Thailand in the early 1950’s to provide poor people with medical treatment. With the same spirit of “caring for the sick as a mother cares for her sick child” the Camillian missionaries are still a presence in Thailand and are still dedicated to caring and serving the sick.
In late 1995, the Camillian Social Centre was established in the Province of Rayong by Father Giovanni Contarin, an Italian priest. The Center was built to provide shelter and care to homeless, indigent, and rejected people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). Special emphasis was placed on women and children, as they were the most vulnerable members of the society.
The Camillian Social Center is a charitable institution and is operated on behalf of the St. Camillus Foundation of Thailand. It is based in the district of Huae Pong and supports and manages seven (7) projects in the Southeast of Thailand. The Center is involved in Palliative Care, Child Care, prevention education, supporting a network of PLWHA, supervising a self-sustaining rehabilitation community, providing scholarships for affected orphaned children and a center for HIV positive orphaned teenagers. All the projects comply with the latest HIV/AIDS strategy outlined by the World Health Organization. The projects are part of an integrated approach that links prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support to people living with HIV/AIDS
The Camillian Social Center in Rayong is confronting AIDS in the 21st century through prevention, treatment and care. We believe that prevention, treatment and care go together to reduce the potential for the transmission of the virus. The Thai government recognizes the Camillian Social Center in Rayong (CSC) as a leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The CSC cooperates with the Ministry of Social Work and the hospitals operating in the South Eastern region of Thailand.
The Camillian Social Center (CSC) Rayong started s activities in 1994 and is one of the first centers opened in Asia to accommodate and help sick orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS.
Today the CSC Rayong is a wonderful example of integration and of activities to fight the problem of HIV/AIDS with 8 projects scattered in the south-east region of Thailand where about 7.000.000 people are living and 150.000 of them have HIV/AIDS.
