Bangkok--19 Mar--CBRE

As part of CBRE Thailand’s 25th anniversary programme, the company sponsored and constructed a clean water system for Baan Huay Mai Sang, a remote village in Mae Hong Sorn province. CBRE known for marketing Thailand’s most luxurious projects took this opportunity to give back to one of Thailand’s poorest communities.

Led by the Chairman, Mr. David Simister, a group of 10 CBRE Thailand volunteers were selected from across all business lines to construct a supply and distribution system with a filter tank, 2 water storage silos and 12 latrines. Clean water systems provide significant ongoing health benefits for rural communities and statistically reduce infant mortality by 50%. Working with the Karen Hilltribes Trust who designs, supervises, and monitors these projects, CBRE Thailand volunteers also brought stationary and clothes to children in the village.

“I believe our volunteers who lived with the villagers for the duration of the project have gained through experience as much as the villagers and we hope to maintain a long-term relationship with Baan Huay Mai Sang,” said Mr. Simister.

The Karen Hilltribes Trust staff, CBRE and the villagers all worked side by side together in the construction of the water system.

The Karen Hilltribes Trust is a charity dedicated to working with the Karen people of Northern Thailand to help them build a better future for themselves. The Karen Hilltribes Trust is keen to work with other organizations interesting in providing water systems to other rural villages.
