Appco Group support helps save the lives of children in Lao orphanage

In an update from Support Lao Children, the orphanage’s founder highlights how Cobra Group’s ongoing support has helped provide vital care for orphaned children.

Support Lao Children founder Andrew Brown has stressed the importance of the funds provided by employees of Appco Group and other Cobra Group companies, as part of the organisation’s CSR programme.

He describes how recent funding helped save the life of a seriously ill young boy and allowed a young girl to have much-needed surgery.

“We had to send one girl to Thailand for a knee reconstruction and she is now recovering well,” Andrew says. “We also had a boy hospitalised for six weeks due to a bone infection and he would likely have died if he hadn’t been taken to hospital.”

As well as medical help, Cobra Group’s support contributes to a nutrition programme for the youngest children at the orphanage.
