Bridge of Hope Thailand Charity Involvement
In August, 2011, the Bridge of Hope Thailand Charity Founder and President, Tiffany Prachachalerm, went to the Camillian Social Center Rayong to volunteer at the Camillian Social Center Rayong's orphanage and Palliative Care Unit. Inspired by the orphans and patients who fought to survive from the HIV/AIDS disease and the social stigma that comes with it, she decided to started the charity in America. Tiffany returned with a group of medical and premedical students, an HIV specialist, and a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner to aid patients in the Palliative Care Unit. It was the first Integrated Western and Eastern Medicine Program to study the treatment of HIV/AIDS in Thailand. She led a successful team of students, doctors, and professors to the Camillian Social Center for two consecutive years after 2011.
