The Wheelchairs And Friendship Center of Asia donated more than 300,000 baht in scholarships and equipment to the Redemptorist School for Persons with Disabilities.
Deputy Mayor Poramet Ngampichet opened the Oct. 23 ceremony with top school and center officials and entertainment from the Klong Sabadchai Show.
WAFCAT launched its Education Promotion Fund in 2003 and this year staged its first “empowerment camp” for disabled students at the Father Ray Foundation school.
As part of the educational camp, the organization also presented the Redemptorist school with 10 wheelchairs, a special wheelchair for basketball competition, and 300,000 baht in scholarships.
The stipends will help students with expenses including transportation, tuition, dormitory rent, learning equipment, and mobility aids and computers.
