Just some of the ladies & children we care for.........
THESE ARE OUR MISSION
In February 2005, Ray & Bonita Emery, traveled to Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand on a buying trip for their import business, and to also visit Roy and Avis Rideout. Ten years earlier, they had helped raise funds in Canada which the Roy & Avis used to open the Agape Baby Home. On their visit to the Agape Home they met a 32 year old woman named Nuu who was almost completely blind from a disease linked to HIV/AIDS. Nuu had been taken in by the Agape Home because she had no job, food or home. She simply had no place to go. The Agape Home, a home for babies and children living with HIV/AIDS, did not have the mandate to take care of Nuu, but could not abandon her. At that time Avis asked us “What do we do with her (Nuu) and countless others like her”? You see, many women are cast out from their villages, families and homes when they contract this deadly virus. They are the castoffs of society,………..adult orphans.
With the knowledge that something had to be done, we stepped forward, and in the late spring of 2005 Nuu Rain Inc. came into being. In August 2005 a rather large 3 bedroom house was rented, and 4 women moved into Baan Nuu Rain.
Since that time, we have had a number of women pass away, but many have left Nuu Rain to restart their lives. Although, because of health issues, many of these women will remain with us, it has always been our goal to be a transition home where we can help these women in their efforts to re-establish their lives.
Nuu Rain operated as a Christian Registered Canadian Charitable Non-profit Foundation with a goal to provide food, clothing, medical, dental and a safe living environment to as many of these women, and in some cases their children. Our greatest joy is when one of these ladies come to the understanding that she is loved and that she is of great worth.
In December 2017, Nuu Rain became part of Seeds of Hope Children's Ministries (please visit their website at: www.seedofhopecm.com) as it was felt that the people group which we serve would greatly benefit from the expertise, knowledge and support that this awesome ministry can provide. Seeds of Hope is also a Registered Canadian Non-profit Foundation. As a side note, Seeds of Hope (originally called Nikki's Seed Foundation) was the group involved with raising the start up funds for the Agape Home, and funded the home for a number of years.
