Klong Toey, Bangkok, Thailand
Lish is passionate about serving God and loves hanging out with people, especially kids. Her heart is for the poor, forgotten and abused. She longs to see love and justice define oppressed neighbourhoods. To see this become a reality Lish joined the UNOH Bangkok team in 2011. She now calls the Klong Toey slum, of some 100,000 people, home.
The Klong Toey slum has many neighbourhoods woven together to make it almost a world of its own. In amongst this world, Lish lives in the Loch 3 neighbourhood. She is involved with running the Loch 3 kids club, a youth leadership development program, teaching and assisting the Kindergarten classes at the Community Centre, helping neighbours access appropriate health care, inviting and supporting discipleship, supporting a local house church, as well as offering friendship and practical support to neighbours
Lish, along with other UNOH workers, longs to see her neighbourhood become like a village centred on Christ.

TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS
UNOH has the capacity to provide tax-deductibility for most donations - either under our own name for work in Australia, or through Global Mission Partners for work in developing countries. We are happy to provide tax-deductibility wherever we can. However, where donations are made without the requirement for tax-deductibility, UNOH has more flexibility in the use these donations. For example, we cannot use donations that have been given tax-deductibility, for activities that might be interpreted as "evangelism", and overseas, not all work in poverty relief is considered eligible for tax-deductibility, especially where we might be assisting individuals rather than doing community development.
As our workers in Australia are considered religious workers, we are not able to issue a tax deductible receipt for donations which are for payment of living expenses of Australian workers.
If you do not normally claim such donations as tax deductions when you do your income tax return, or if you do not earn enough the have to pay tax, then nominating NO for tax-deductibility is a good choice for UNOH and no cost to you. Moreover, you might simply choose to forego tax-deductibility in order to provide greater flexibility for UNOH in spending your donation.NZ Donations
For those in NZ who want to donate to UNOH in NZ dollars, if you donate through UNOH Australia, you will incur a fee for foreign exchange and will not be able to claim a tax receipt because the donation will go to Australia (not NZ). If you would like to donate direct to UNOH NZ, please click here.
