Viengping Children’s Home was established in 1986 as a baby care unit attached to the Chiang Mai Boys’ Home, and is under the auspices of the Department of Public Welfare. The home was extended in 1988 to care for all orphaned children in the Northern region before being changed in 1997 to cater to babies and children up to the age of six years, and girls aged seven to 18 years.
The home also cares for children who are HIV-positive from birth and children orphaned as a result of the deaths of AIDS-infected parents. Viengping was the first orphanage in Thailand to take in children with HIV and initially accepted children from across the country. Other homes have followed its lead, and Viengping now cares for infected children from the 17 Northern provinces.
