    3 Children live on their own after father went to jail and mother ran away

    3 children have been living alone after the father went to jail and the mother ran away, leaving the 3 to survive on their own. The 3 children are 11, 8, and 7 years old and have been surviving on their own for 1 week. The Sanook News team reported on 30 May 2021 that they received news from Thanad Ruengwong known as Art 38 years old. Art is a volunteer at Poj Tech Tung Foundation in Sing Buri Province. The volunteer stated that 3 children have been found living alone at a home located in the main city of Sing Buri.

    The rescue team received notification and went to the home. The team found Film 11 years old studying in Grade 5, Friend 8 years old studying in grade 2, and First 7 years old studying in grade 1. All the children are studying at the Wat Sangkharachawat Temple School. Art revealed the children have been living totally on their own with no adults for at least a week. The father was recently sent to jail and the mother abandoned all of them. All 3 children informed the rescue team that they all wanted to wait for their mom, but the team knew it was not right to let children survive with no adult care at all.

    Art called some friends who heloed clean the home and brought over a lot of food, water, and money. Friends from the Pikun Thong Temple group also brought a lot of items including clothing, snacks, and more as help for the children. A group called Inburi group also brought beds, mosquito nets, clothing, milk, and more. Officials from the Sing Buri Ministry of Social Development and Human Security went to visit the children. They also contacted the relatives who have promised to take care of all 3 for now. Film the oldest will go to stay with his grandpa who is a monk at a temple near the home. The 2 girls will stay with other relatives.

    responsibility and a sense of duty is of little or no importance to either thais of this class, or to those who operate the social systems put in place by the authorities, supposedly in order to help those who, for whatever reason, have fallen through the net. in thailand, the ego and the self are all important and fxck everyone else.

    a flawed system, imposed upon a flawed people by a flawed government.

    in other words, for many at the bottom of the heap, it remains a third world shithole from which there is no escape.

    There are documented cases all over Africa of similar cases so this is not that uncommon. I am pleased that things worked out well for the children.

    Very unusual though hardly 'staggering'.

    How sad for the kids, but well done to them for managing for a week without any adults around to help them.

    Totally agree, this would never happen in the UK in this day and age.

    Oh, wait a minute!

    My bad.

    Staggering has nothing to do with occurrence, you twit.

    Unusual or not unusual, it's still staggering that a parent would run away and leave 3 young kids alone.

    Verphy Kudi, now 19, pleaded guilty at Lewes Crown Court this morning.

    A court heard that the teenager walked out on 20-month-old Asiah and partied while her baby starved to death in 2019.

    Mental health problems aren't staggering.
