Sattahip officials brought government services and medical care to local neighborhoods with its latest “mobile services unit” effort.
The March 22 event was the first of the periodic outreach effort of the year, with Sattahip District Chief Chaichan Iamcharoen accompanied by his wife and Sattahip Red Cross head Nittaya, as well as Bang Saray Sheriff Shin Kaewsank and medical staff from Sattahip Km. 10 Hospital.
Free blood pressure checks were just some of the free services on offer during the day.
Doctors offered free checkups and administered dosages to those on medication. Meanwhile, bureaucrats offered information on jobs, taxes, agriculture and livestock breeding. Free haircuts were offered and locally made items were up for sale.
Chaichan said that with difficult economic times and Thailand’s recovery from last year’s flooding, residents have seen higher prices and lower spending power. The mobile services unit was a way to help people economically and offer them the convenience of not having to go to district offices to take care of business. About 200 people took advantage of the outreach effort.
