Four hours of rain, mud and flooded dirt roads didn’t stop a bunch of about 20 dedicated teachers and volunteers to deliver milk to 55 children at a remote school in Thungyai Naresuan wildlife sanctuary in Kanchanaburi, Thailand.
Ban Koh Sadoeng School is only about ten kilometers from Ban Kong Mongtha, the parent school, however, a treacherous journey lies ahead especially during the rainy season when the only dirt road to the remote school turns muddy and floods in several areas.
The dangerous part of the trip is the rickety bamboo bridge over a rushing creek, which is wide enough for just one motorcycle to pass at a time. One mistake can send both the motorbike and the rider into the creek, to be swept away by the strong currents.
It appears the hurdles are not enough to discourage the teachers and volunteers who were serious in accomplishing their mission to deliver the milk before it expires.
A teacher said that they have to make three deliveries each month.
The parents thanked the dedicated teachers and volunteers, without whom the children would be without milk, as the school is located in the middle of the jungle, and travel out of the village in Laiwo sub-district is near to impossible during the rainy season.
