With the continuing popularity and success of the Honda LPGA Thailand tournaments the organizers look to give back to the local communities.

These negative and positive pressure masks were carefully designed and manufactured by the Honda Engineering team to help healthcare workers breathe comfortably when in contact with patients while protecting them from the COVID-19 virus.
Other fundraising efforts by the Honda LPGA Thailand include the annual charity auction, where proceeds are donated to the Siriraj Foundation in Bangkok.
