The Banglamung Red Cross delivered diapers, food and other necessities to a Pattaya woman caring for her infant grandson, who was disabled by an attack from a nanny last year.
Imjai Buranacharoenkit and other Red Cross officials delivered the milk, small mattress and some cash to Rachinda Ruscell March 4.
She has been caring for year-old Thanakrit Maneesai since his mother abandoned him following the debilitating abuse in November at a Pattaya-area daycare center.
According to a medical report at the time, the child was beaten to the body and head, burned with cigarettes and cut.
The child developed critical brain swelling that has left him both mentally and physically disabled. He consumes only a liquid diet, suffers frequent fevers and is in need of further surgery to reduce cranial pressure.
Rachinda has done what she can to care for the child, but has had to quit her job and is now four months behind on rent. Neighbors have contributed to care of the child, but it is not enough.
Anyone wanting to donate large-size diapers, Blendera-MF dietary supplement, S-26 Progress milk formula 3 or any other supplies or cash can do so by calling Rachinda at 089-438-280 or donating at Ban Euarthorn Naklua, Building 23, Room No. 104/21.
