Vince and oxanna stivala
Vince and Oxanna are an amazing couple who came to the island for the first time in 2006 from Malta. They wanted to make Koh PhaNgan their holiday home for 6 months of the year. On visiting the clinic the first time, they noticed that PACS' surgery had no air conditioning, making surgeries very difficult in this tropical climate. Vince and Oxanna paid to get air conditioning fitted into our surgery for these difficult times.
They were so impressed with PACS' work, they have provided regular sponsorship and a large donation towards the purchase of PACS' pick up truck.
Another animal lover to our rescue. Ark first came to PACS in 2013 when our washing machine broke down. We had to send all of our washing to be done privately, which cost a lot of money for us. Ark came to the rescue and bought us two brand new washing machines, fitted them and taught us how to use it correctly to ensure its life would be long lived. He also started to donate 10,000 THB per month to help take care of strays.
"Anon" donated a big sum of money to us for the building of our new volunteer accommodation. In 2015 he visited our center, 9 months after completion, and was very happy with what his money paid for. Our new accommodation now houses at least 4 more volunteers, providing two bathrooms with hot water showers, and a kitchen and hammock/hang out space.
Stacey Spielman is a long term supporter of PACS, she first paid for "Elmo's Place", a hang out area for volunteers at our old clinic in Baan Tai. When she heard wind of us building our new accommodation she donated 25,000 THB to help cover costs of the gardening in our volunteer area at our new clinic, which will be completed with hammocks and mango trees.
Meredith Scott is our longest PAC supporter, she donates 5GBP every month without fail. Meredith has successfully paid for 5 Rabies vaccines every month since 2005. That gives us a total number of 503 dogs vaccinated against Rabies. All thanks to Meredith <3 We hope we continue to get her generous donations.
