Support Lao Children


Working to eradicate poverty for all children in Northern Lao.

Andrew Brown first moved to Laos in 2007 to set up a hotel, the Lotus Villa. In a visit to a nearby state orphanage he was deeply moved to see children living in extremely poor conditions and with few prospects of breaking the poverty cycle. Upon graduation most children were destined to return to their villages to engage in subsistence farming.

Andrew placed a small information plaque in the reception of the hotel and began to raise funds to support a basic food programme of bread and milk for the children. Over time and with the help of generous donors, he set up Support Lao Children to holistically improve the lives of the children in three orphanages in Northern Lao – in Luang Prabang, Suan Luang and Numbuk.


The organisation provides:

  1. nutritious meals of meat, fish and eggs – the children’s only source of protein
  2. water filtration systems – to provide clean drinking water for the children
  3. medical and dental programmes – weekly visits to the orphanages
  4. scholarships  to enable as many graduates as possible from the orphanages to go to college and escape the cycle of poverty






The cost of changing these children’s lives is amazingly some 6% of what it would cost in the UK. Help us improve more lives in 2016 by giving today – via a secure BT Donate portal.
