Earlier this week I visited Ban Koh Lone School on the small island of Koh Lone, just off the coast of Phuket. The island was devastated by the 2004 tsunami. I went along with 2 colleagues to carry out some preliminary checks before we go back in a few weeks en masse to redecorate the library and the 2 classrooms still in use.
It’s been over 10 years since the tsunami hit and I would hate to see what is left of this place left to rot and ruin. I’m really looking forward to helping out this small community – a little bit of help can make a big difference here.
Here’s my Snapchat Story from the day to give you a feel of the condition of the school and this island. Apologies for the poor camera quality, I will be taking proper kit with me when we go back to do the volunteer work in a few weeks.
