The Pavena Foundation for Children and Women has received a request for help regarding one 13-year-old boy addicted to Yaba.
The urgent request was sent by the aunt who takes care of the derailed boy. The aunt feels out of control after the boy threatened to kill everyone in the household.
The father is in prison for life and the mother ran away. Rai, the boy’s aunt, contacted the foundation through its official Facebook page. Rai stated that she has been taking care of the child since he was 3 and that he used to be very good at school.
Rai revealed that the father had been sentenced to life imprisonment and the mother had left with the northern sun.
Rai takes care of nine people in the household. The kid has always been a good boy. She sent him to school, but when he started in 6th grade, the boy skipped school and started hanging out with the wrong group of friends. The family always has to search and drag home.
He has been using Yaba since he was 11 years old and has been using the drugs for over 2 years now, he is out for days and when he comes home he sleeps 3 days in a row. Slowly the boy develops into a tyrant in the house, so two days ago he grabbed a kitchen knife and shouted: “Whoever comes into the house, I’ll stab them all.”
Rai doesn’t know what to do anymore and decided to enlist the help of the Pavena foundation. Pavena Hongsakul contacted Police Colonel Chetpan Wichadit of the Kuraburi Police Force in Phang Nga Province to help treat the boy.
