Japanese and Thai children exchanged a bit of culture over lunch and football as a Bangkok company paid a visit to the Pattaya Orphanage.
About 35 Japanese youths participated in the outing organized by Omita Co. The company provided lunch for the orphans while the kids exchanged stories with the 40 Thai orphans and challenged them to a game of football.
Omita manager, Masafumi Honda said the experience will be a memorable one for the Japanese youths, many who have nearly completed their program in Thailand and are headed home. Further visits are planned next year to Hua Hin and Khao Yai. In the past, youngsters planted vegetables and swam in Kanchanaburi.
Masafumi Honda, manager of Omita Co., Ltd., along with the Japanese children, Anupab, a teacher in the administration department, and students at the orphanage salute a fun day.
