Thanks to a donation of B10,000 from Paul and Heidi Müller of Switzerland, the PCF was able to pay for a slap-up lunch for almost 200 kids at Baan Bang Rong School in the northeast of the island, to celebrate Children’s Day.
Children’s Day, January 9, is celebrated across Thailand with song and dance performances, along with plenty of games with small prizes for the winners. This year it fell on a Saturday, so was celebrated in schools the previous day.
In addition to the Müllers’ donation, the kids also received home-made coconut ice cream, made by Manosit Jangjob and paid for by Riam Niyomkichakarn. The Kusoldharm Foundation donated 250 bottles of water, Thanawut Tohthong donated 200 packs of colour pencils and Millenium Graphic donated 200 sheets of paper for drawing.
The PCF would like to express its gratitude to these people for making Children’s Day special at this school in one of the poorer parts of Phuket.
