Wiboonrat Chanchoo, landmine survivor, Sakaeo province
I have known JRS since 1999. Pi Ah (Siriphen Limsirikul) encouraged me to be a representative of Thai landmine survivors and participate in the Meeting of State Parties in Geneva. After returning home I became a leader for people with disabilities (PWDs). 

JRS supports scholarships for children of landmine survivors. JRS also helps to build the capacity of the PWD group by providing support for writing proposals, establishing networks with concerned agencies willing to support the provision of prosthetic legs, wheelchairs and livelihood opportunities. JRS provides psychological and spiritual support for us and has encouraged me to be a leader of PWDs. JRS supports me to advocate at both national and international levels. I always share the information from the meeting I attend to the PWDs in my area. I hope JRS will continue to do good things like this forever.
