Located in the remote mountainous area of northern Thailand in Chiang Rai, Ban Hin Taek (滿星疊) was formerly infamous for its drug production. Uniquely situated at the intersection of a number of national borders, Ban Hin Taek has a rich cultural and historical background created by the diverse mix of multi-racial ethnic groups in the area. Additionally, Chinese schools were established in the area to provide Chinese education to the children and later generations of soldiers who settled in the region following the Chinese Civil War. 

Sun Zhen-ting (孫振庭) from Kaohsiung in Taiwan, went somewhat astray in his youth and was addicted to drugs for more than 10 years. By chance, he found himself in Ban Hin Taek’s drug addiction treatment center, where he finally succeeded in kicking his drug habit and then earnestly applied himself to complete a course of study in theology. In November 2014, a Ban Hin Taek landowner invited Sun Zhen-ting to establish Star Child House orphanage. At the beginning, the orphanage had only two children resident, but as of September 2016, it was already providing shelter to twenty-three children.

When Sun Zhen-ting took over the orphanage’s running it was very crudely equipped, and the roof, walls, toilets, kitchen, bedrooms, and chapel were all in a state of disrepair; even the orphanage courtyard was just a patch of uneven clay soil. With no resources or funding, Sun Zhen-ting has been actively publicizing the needs and predicament of the orphanage far and wide to hopefully secure finance and assistance.

台灣囝仔泰北重生 感同身受守護星星之家

「滿星疊」位於泰北清萊府的偏遠山區,曾是毒梟王國所在地,鄰近多國交界的地理位置,也造就多元種族的人文歷史背景,當年國共內戰時留下來的軍人後代子孫在此定居,因此當地設有中文學校,提供中文教育。

來自台灣高雄的孫振庭,年輕時誤入歧途,受毒品捆綁10餘年,因緣際會下,他來到滿星疊的戒毒村戒毒,總算順利戒毒成功,之後努力完成神學課程。2014年11月,原滿星疊育幼院的地主邀請孫振庭,於原址成立滿星疊星星之家育幼院。成立初期只有2位院童,到2016年9月已收養達23位。

剛接手育幼院時,軟硬體設備簡陋,屋頂、牆壁、廁所、廚房、臥房、禮拜堂均年久失修,院子甚至是凹凸不平的黃土地,孫院長在完全沒有任何資源,沒有任何經費的情況下,他開始去找資源與協助,分享給更多人知道育幼院的困境與需求。
