JAN-PETER AND NATASJA KELDER
Jan-Peter and Natasja Kelder and their two sons moved to Thailand in the beginning of 2013. Jan-Peter, with a background in communication, and Natasja, with a background in social work, both felt the calling to serve the needy and to spread the gospel from a young age. During their first visit to Thailand in 2006 their hearts were deeply touched by the many HIV-orphans living in Thailand and the little love that they receive. After finishing their studies and gaining some work experience, God showed the Kelders in 2012 that it was time to move to Thailand.
They now serve as CEO and project manager at Siam-Care, a foundation that reaches out to about 300 HIV-infected families. Among other things Siam-Care provides scholarships to HIV-orphans, spreads the gospel among infected prisoners and teaches about the risks of unsafe sex. Jan-Peter mainly focuses on project management and fundraising. Natasja spends her days overseeing the finances, the wellbeing of our staff and Siam-Care’s homecare program. It is their dream to connect all 300 families to local churches and together with the churches help to improve the quality of life for the families financially, emotionally and spiritually.
