Today, Rung and I, along with our daughter Asia and not forgetting Mum & Dad, had the absolute pleasure and privilege to spend the morning in the company of some very special children, their volunteer carers and Lukas Wyss, founder of Skill Centre Chiang Mai at Nong Phueng, Saraphi.
We arrived just after 9 AM.; Lukas talked us through the history and aims of SCC before a minibus from The Dulabhatorn Foundation pulled in, packed with eight highly excitable Special Needs children with a full range of physical and learning disabilities keen to enjoy their morning.
At SCC, there are five ponies and a horse, either rescued or donated that Lukas has taken considerable time and effort working with so they can provide therapeutical riding and hippotherapy for these Special Needs children through what for them, is fun.
We had only planned on being there a short while; once there, we ended up staying for the morning after Lukas gave us the opportunity to help the children ride and to watch them run through their therapy – what an absolute pleasure.
Thank you, Lukas. You’re doing some amazing work.
