Accompanied by Pattaya police officers, the group distributed large-size Body Guard-brand condoms at pubs and bars along the street favored by Pattaya expats.
Rotarians picked up the slack of Pattaya City Hall, which this year canceled its traditional World AIDS Day parade, the highlight of which is always the distribution of condoms.
The World Health Organization has observed Dec. 1 as World AIDS Day since 1988 to raise awareness of the dangers of AIDS and HIV.
