We visited this charity after looking round the Wat near by and we were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the workers and atmosphere of good will. This foundation provides a place for mentally handicapped people to join together through weaving as well as musics and art. They are truly talented weavers and whilst you are there you are allowed to... More

Hard to get this song out of our heads, after another visit to the Healing Family Foundation. We were fortunate enough to be able to join in with the weaving, as well as the singing. You are my sunshine, how appropriate a song for this feel good establishment. Participating in the weaving is incredibly therapeutic, purchasing one of the many... More

When in Chiang mai please go here and support the work of this centre. As most places in the world UK included there are not enough centres around to provide meaningful employment for those with special needs after school. This wonderful little place was set up by one of the artists fathers. The people there are all very friendly and... More

I decided to come here after reading about it on trip advisor. It took us for-ever to find (bringing three children along for the walk) but I am really glad we persisted. We were greeted with open arms, hearts and the widest smiles I've seen. The kids were given a quick demo on how to use the loom and then... More

As a group from Melbourne we were so warmly welcomed by a foundation senior. His foresight and inspiration were a credit to the whole meaning of this enterprise. Everyone had the biggest smile and loved dancing with and for us, as well as watching their weaving expertise. It was fun but also a serious business giving those who worked there... More

As a group we had a wonderful experience. The proud father who started the foundation, spoke about the centre, we watched a small presentation, while being shown their weaving. Dancing followed, along with huge smiles, we then made some beautifully designed purchases. It's so important to see people having a purpose in life. It's just what we all need. Fantastic... More

Spotted this place totally by accident and was pleasantly surprised by lovely designs (tshirts, postcards, etc). Stop by, say hello to people who are working inside, weaving and stitching - they will be very happy to see you and gladly show their trade. And buy a few things to help a great cause - The Healing Family Foundation for people... More

We feel so fortunate to have stopped in the Healing Hand Foundation. We met all the friendly people who work there. The Foundation employs people with intellectual disabilities. They weave cloth that is made into handbags, cute cards, adorable t-shirts and other cute souvenirs. Everyone there was super sweet and friendly, we didn't want to leave. It definitely was a...

After reading about the Healing Family Foundation on tripadvisor, we thought that would be a nice place to visit but wasn't too sure where it was. After finding out it was right by our hotel (Sala Lanna) we went and visited. We were welcomed with big smiles, hugs and even dancing! Everyone showed us what they were working on (creating)...
