A Banglamung man is seeking public assistance to cover the costs of raising his disabled daughter alone after her mother left them.
Boonlert Thongloi, 37, is the sole guardian for 13-year-old Wanmarin, who developed a brain infection as an infant and today is mentally retarded and unable to walk or feed herself. Boonlert must bathe the girl and feed her with a bottle.
He said the child’s mother abandoned them a while back, unable to take the stress of caring for her offspring. Since then, neighbors have pitched in, looking out for Wanmarin, but he has had to quit his job to take care of her. Now the family has no income.
The distressed father is seeking handouts from the public. Anyone wanting to donate can contact him at 094-654-6763.
