Friday, 21 September 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 38 By  Warunya Thongrod

The Dusit Thani Hotel and Green Leaf Foundation joined forces to renovate restrooms at Jittapawan College.

Executives from the hotel and environmental group joined Buddhist worshippers Sept. 12 at the college for monks to unveil the new facilities.

Thirty-six restrooms, including 23 that were are either air conditioned or facilitate the disabled, were funded by donations from the hotel, employees, guests and Buddhist followers. Dusit General Manager Chatchawan Supachayanont formally presented the new facilities to Sangkharatpongsak Wuthiyano, provost for Jittapawan College.

The hotel also presented the priest with monk robes, rice and other daily necessities.

School officials said the old restrooms were damaged after many years of use and the dharma school lacked the funds to do its own repairs.
