Twenty children from the Child Protection and Development Center set out to do what Pattaya city workers aren’t: clean up Pratamnak Road.
CPDC Director Radchada Chomjinda led the kids from the Human Help Network Thailand shelter along a stretch behind the police box on the Pattaya City sign hill, picking up garbage, plastic bags, bottles, cans, cigarettes and other items city sanitation workers have ignored.
Children from the Child Protection and Development Center dig deep into the brush to pick up litter.
Assisted by two local residents, the kids took pleasure in doing something good for society and the environment. They got plenty of applause from passersby.
Locals provided soft drinks for the kids, who set out at 7 a.m. with gloves and garbage bags to clean up the hill.
It’s a community effort to rid the area of thoughtless litter.
The children feel good about doing something good for society and the environment.
The area before the cleanup was truly a mess.
