One of the great dynamics when it comes to charity organizations in Pattaya is the fact that they work together in an effort to aid those who really need assistance.

A Dee Jay at City Hall radio named Saisamorn Pithak (Yui) was interviewing a member of the Thai Farang Initiative (TFi) and mentioned off-air that her grandmother was in need of a wheelchair.

A month later the TFi member was chatting to Margaret Grainger from the Hand to Hand Foundation and the subject of wheelchairs came up. Margie mentioned that she had two spare wheelchairs that had been given to her after the death of some local people and Margie said she would be delighted to pass it on to someone who needs it.

A few days later Yui went down to the Hand to Hand center at Duck Square in South Pattaya whereby she was introduced to Margie and the wheelchair was handed over to her.

The wheelchair is now en-route to Khon Kaen where Yui’s 94-year-old grandmother will get the full use of it.

Margie pointed out that they can make use of literally anything, from old bikes and clothes, etc. If you would like to help and find out more about the work that Margie and her team do at Hand to Hand, please go online to: www. handtohandpattaya.com
