Very impressed with Sawang Boriboon Foundation in South Pattaya, Thailand
I will be travelling to Thailand in the later part of this year.
The main purpose of visiting Thailand is to pray Phra Phrom at Erawan Shrine in Bangkok, and to make “coffin donation”.
This means the money will pay for the purchase of coffins so that the poor and unclaimed bodies can have a dignified final rite.
After reading about the work of Sawang Boriboon Foundation in South Pattaya, Thailand, I have decided to direct my donation to this organization.
Sawang Boriboon Foundation in South Pattaya started as a self-help organization to help the Chinese community.
It expands to serve the people in Pattaya, such as emergency medical service. It has a number of ambulances and medics who respond to all sorts of emergencies.
The medics are volunteers but they are well-trained.
A few years ago when the Thailand suffered from a devastating flood, Sawang Boriboon Foundation raised funds to help the victims.
It has a school that started with 100 students, and has since expanded to more than 2000 students. The main purpose is to teach traditional Chinese and Thai values. The school offers pre-school to Mattayom 3 (lower secondary) education in English, Chinese, and Thai languages.
All these work are supported by volunteers and funding from the public.
After reading about the great work of Sawang Boriboon Foundation, I am deeply impressed with it.
