Red Cross Chairwoman Supranee Chatpaisit presented the first of the kits Aug. 19 at Thaang Trong, Taphotharaam and Wat Nongkhla schools in Sriracha, and Wat Maiketgnarm and Paakkhlong Rongnaak schools in Chonburi.
Supranee said the Red Cross is concerned about the large number of poor students in province schools who may not receive the medical care they need. Thus the organization decided to pass out 300 first aid kits in each Chonburi district to help improve children’s health and lower parents expenses.
The Chonburi Red Cross is distributing first aid kits to schools throughout the province to promote better health.
Kits were passed out this week at Wat Pongtamuk School and Wat Khonkheenon schools in Panthong District; Saam Yaek, Khong Pradu and Khlong schools in Koh Chan District; and Nawung and Phoothai schools in Glamun district; Khao Sijun and Khao Baisri schools in Sattahip; Huayaang, Wat Khaophai schools in Bung District; and Pongketu, Bokwagthong and Bungtaku schools in Bo Thong District.
On Sept. 8, more kits will be handed out at Wat Nerntamaak, Plaeng Kathin, Wat Plaengkathin, Wat Khao Sirirom and Thraimoon schools in Phanasnikhom District.
The campaign wraps up Sept. 12 at Nong Pradu and Wat Chalermlaab schools in Nong Yai.
