Chaiyathep said the latest donations for little “Nong Game” show the government’s continuing commitment to the boy, one of two Sattahip toddlers suffering from the water-on-the-brain syndrome.

Nathakorn is said to be improving after doctors at Chonburi Hospital drilled a hole in his head an installed a shunt to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid into his bladder. The toddler has become more responsive, his eyes more alert and cramping has decreased, Pradit said.
