Kjell Bergqvist and his family have been an important part of Happy Child and the children’s home from the start.
He and his family have privately donated large sums of money. Kjell has also helped the children’s home and Happy Child by participating in many of our events, and not least in terms of getting information about the children’s home seen and heard in every possible, and many seemingly impossible, contexts.
Every time he and his family visit Thailand they come and say hello to the children at the home, which means that he has great insight into the children’s home and he knows the children and the staff. We are extremely grateful that we have been given a place in Kjell's big, warm heart.
Kjelles Taveresa was founded by actor Kjell Bergqvist and artist Emil Grönholm.
Emil Grönholm paints portraits of famous Swedes who then auctioned on Facebook.
The idea was brought to life when Emil repainted the walls at Kjelle’s - in other words, when two kind souls met. Emil who loves to paint, Kjelle who has lots of great contacts, and both with a passion for helping others.
It started with two portraits of Kjelle himself and then it took off.

Susanne Karlfeldt was a volunteer at Barnhem in 2015 and made as much impression on the children and the staff as they did on her. Her four months at Barnhem led to her being a part of the family, even after leaving.
We let Susanne tell us more about the book herself:
"In the fall of 2015, I was volunteering at Barnhem for four months. These four months do not get out of the body because they are one of the most amazing I've experienced. Now I want to share my wonderful time with the children and the people of Muang Mai, while continuing to help Barnhem. I do so by selling my diaries from my time at the Barnhem. It's a personal story that I hope can inspire and entertain. Who knows, you might be inspired to do the same. "
The book costs SEK 170 - SEK 70 goes to cover the printing costs and the remaining SEK 100 goes on to the children. As of 31 December 2018 the book has raised
