Welfare & community projects

Who we support

ANZWG has an established tradition of giving back to the Thai community in which we live. For over 50 years ANZWG has been raising funds to assist a range of organisations working with Thai women and children to promote their health, wellbeing and education. Traditionally, the annual Melbourne Cup Luncheons have been ANZWG's most successful fundraising events.

ANZWG currently provides education support to over 100 students through: 

  • Mercy House in Pranburi

  • Good Shepherd Sisters in Nongkhai

  • Diocesan SAC in the provinces of Ratchaburi province, Kanchanaburi and Phethaburi

  • The Hilltribe Education Project (THEP).


ANZWG actively supports Sister Joan’s Presentation Slum Mission and her legacy of the milk and rice runs operating in the Klong Toey district, and we work closely with Sister Louise at The Good Shepherd Sister’s in Din Daeng and the Fatima Centre.


In the past, ANZWG has supported:

  • Duang Prateep Foundation 

  • Good Shepherd Sisters Din Daeng

  • Don Bosco flood victims support

  • Operation Smile

  • Rainbow House 

  • Haus Bethesda Orphanage

  • Home of the Open Heart 

  • Smiles on Wings.

ANZWG has raised funds to help with major buidling works including building a canteen, dormitories and a sports ground, purchasing sewing machines, painting rooms, distributing food packages during Covid-19, and much more.


Welfare team

The ANZWG welfare team has responsibility for providing informed recommendations for the endorsement of community requests as well as following the progress of projects currently funded by ANZWG. This includes the members travelling to various locations within Thailand to visit the relevant organisations and/or receiving photo documentation of the progress of the projects. The team also arranges visits for ANZWG members to familiarise them with local charities in Thailand.
