“All members of the association believe in the importance of good health for these unfortunate children and giving them an opportunity to care for their own health,” Praichit said. “The number of children is quite high, therefore, to take them for health checks or hospital services is quite difficult, not to mention the expense for the foundation. Therefore, we decided to provide a medical checkup for children since we want to care for children’s health to prevent infectious disease and reduce expenses for the various foundations in Pattaya and Banglamung.”
