On the picture one can see the hand over of the first diapers to the grandmother of the girl.

July 2012, a special gift

Asia Care Foundation received a gift that was collected in a special way in the summar of 2012. A friend of Bob didn't want to receive presents for her birthday this year. In stead visitors could donate money to the Asia Care Foundation. Bob presented his work for the foundation at this birtday. This day a serious amount of money has been collected, for which we are grateful.

The cookies action of last month, organized by Carola and Dinant, was again a great succes. The foundation is very grateful for the dedication that is given evidence in Holland to help the people in Thailand.


December 13, 2011

Bob wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Bob recently wrote about his health: "My foot is almost completely healed again. I only have to continue treatment of both feet with a cream. The situation of my back did not improve since the last time.”

November 22, 2011

Carola and Dinant visited Bob and the refugees in Thailand last autumn. After their trip, they organized an action for the Asia Care Foundation. The announcement of this action follows:

Dear family,

Dear family, As you know, me and Dinant have been in Thailand for one month during September/October 2011. Although we did a lot of cool things during this wonderful trip and have seen beautiful places, we also have experienced something that was very emotional and dramatic: We have visited the refugees from Burma.

We were taken there by Bob, a friend of Dinant’s family, who has established a foundation for these people to provide food and medication. We were impressed. We have seen a family that consists of a father, mother and three children. The father had stepped on a landmine in Burma: he lost his arm and became completely blind. The eldest daughter is spastic and lies in a hammock in the empty and austere living. How strong is this mother in the midst of so much misery!

For this reason we decided to raise money for the refugees during our holidays. They have much lower levels of wealth than we have – it's so nice in Holland and we enjoy good food and gifts. We’ll bake a lot of cookies and we will sell them for 5 euros per bag on Saturday at Grandma's birthday. All of the money will go to the foundation and will be used to buy food and medication.

On the website:, you can see our entire travel report (in Dutch) with photos including our visit to the refugees. On Saturday we’ll show our book so you can read the travel reports and see the photos. The website of the foundation is:

Please help us to collect a great amount of money!

See you Saturday!
Carola & Dinant.

Bob sent us the following message on November 3rd:

I have a littly nuisance from the fall on July 4th this year. It becomes less and less. Currently I'm more or less housebound. I have a bacterial infection on my right foot. Yesterday I went to the hospital and I have to clean the wound daily and cover it sterile with a dressing. I also had antibiotics and painkillers. If the swelling does not decrease, I'll go back to the doctor for possible adjustment of medication.

Fortunately, I do not need to visit the refugees in Pala - U. I can postpone this until mid-November. I expect that I’ll be able to go there by myself by then and in case of emergency I’ll send Curt in my place, an American missionary.

I have to skip my language lessons now unfortunately.

The current situation of the flood in Thailand: This weekend a lot of water from the north in Bangkok is expected. Currently we have here in Hua Hin many evacuees from the area of Bangkok. We do not have floodings here. However, there are logistical problems related to the massive flooding in Thailand: At Tesco Lotus, the largest supermarket here in Hua Hin, many shelves are empty. Other supermarkets have fewer empty shelves. Drinking water is limited.

I would like to request prayers for a quick healing of my wound. I would also like to ask for prayer for the natural emergency situation in Thailand. Much thanks in advance, Bob

October 26, 2011

Last autumn Carola and Dinant visited Bob. They have recorded their experiences in their report. It can be read at the tab "Travel reports".


We received thanks from a fellow missionary of Bob for the medication that was purchased by the money of the foundation:

Hey Bob,

I've attached the pictures of the medication that was bought. I have the receipts and I'll give them to you on Sunday. This is a great blessing! They said: "Thank you very much"! Blessings in Christ, Curt

September 2011

On July 4, Bob fell from slippery stairs (because of the rain) of his neighbor cases. Mid-September he wrote about this:

"Currently, I have a lot less pain, but it has not been fully disappeared. Especially with some movements of my left hip I get unexpected twinges. The first four weeks I have been pretty limited in my actions. Work related assistance to the refugees are not suffered. Despite many painful moments include motorcycling and even driving on dirt roads and sometimes many holes in asphalt, I could the daily life letting go as best as possible. I have also been limited in household chores in and outside for a few weeks. And still I can not do anything I want."

April 2011

In Thailand, since april, Bob is busy learning to read and write the Thai language and he will be able to speak it as well later on. Bob: "I think it will take at least two year and a half to achieve this. And of course I will help the refugees in the meantime in a practical way."
