ABOUT ME:

My name is Than Oo.

I have education to the 12th standard and studied Physics. I write and speak English. My parents are teachers and I was once a sailor. I have no family in Thailand and no visits from family.

Nowadays I am just trying the best for my future and to support my countrymen's futures too because in this place we have no support. The only way I can survive is to cook and clean for the foreigners in my cell. There are 17 foreigners in my room; one English, Russian, two Germans, one Malaysian and one from Africa. Even they do not have much but they try to help me because I am a hard worker. I am also working in the toy factory in the prison and this helps me to keep my mind focused on becoming a better person.

I sincerely hope that you might find some time to write to me please. I am doing my best to be respectful and good. I am in genuine need of people to help me a little in whatever way they can. I am hoping to submit an application for a King's Pardon this year but at the moment I do not have the money for a lawyer.

Please... I need your support!

I am very sorry that my life has turned out this way and I am working hard to make life better.
VISITING DAYS: If you are coming to Thailand and want to visit me please write to me in advance so I can arrange it. Or you can come to the prison and ask the guards to help you visit me.

Visiting days are only on Tuesday and Thursday between 9:30am and 11:30am and in the afternoon between 1:30pm and 2:30pm.
LETTER WRITING: I really would love to get letters and I will do my very best to reply. The cost of stamps is a luxury to people like me but sometimes I am able to get help from the other foreigners if I work hard. So please if you have time, please write to me.

Please write to me if you have free time.
