The Sawang Rojthummasathan Foundation donated rice and dried food to 3,999 Sattahip-area residents as part of the organization’s annual ceremony to make merit for those who died without family members to bury them.

Mayor Narong Bunbancherdsri led the Aug. 16 “Thingkrajad” ceremony, which draws its origins from China. Doing good deeds for the underprivileged and making merit for souls with no living relatives clears one’s karma, he said.
