Pattaya has approved the spending of 96,000 baht to bring better vision to 200 Pattaya residents.
The Social Welfare Department received approval for its annual “Relief Supplies for the Disabled” project Aug. 25. Residents of each of Pattaya’s 42 communities, including 50 Pattaya students, will receive the spectacles during an event on September 18.
While named a program to help the disabled, students traditionally also have received glasses and other aid at the annual event. All recipients had to preregister for the handout, with each community limited to a set number of recipients.
Residents have their eyes tested for free spectacles from the “Relief Supplies for the Disabled 2014” project.
