A wheelchair-bound Pattaya man donated a wheelchair of his own to Nongprue Subdistrict to give to a resident in need.
Boonsong Putkratok, 62, presented the wheelchair to Nongprue Deputy Mayor Niyom Theingthum and Social Welfare chief Pattama Chanchiew at the municipal office Sept. 16.
While Boonsong cannot walk, he said he already has a good chair. The one he donated was given to him by a woman whose elderly husband died. He wanted to give it to the local government to pass on to another disabled resident.
It’s not the first time Boonsong has donated a wheelchair. He has become a steady source of donations for the Social Welfare Department.
