The YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center donated 500 kilograms of rice to the Father Ray Foundation for its S.O.S. Rice campaign.
Father Ray Vice President Rev. Michael Picharn Jaiseri accepted the rice on Feb. 19, and explained how the foundation cares for about 900 children, requiring six tons of rice per month. The S.O.S. Rice campaign has been organized for 17 years to allow organizations and individuals to help bear that burden.
The latest campaign began Dec. 4 with the installation of donation boxes in various department stores and 7-Elevens in Pattaya and other important destinations. So far, the foundation has collected 10,783 kg of rice, 306 kg of sugar, 604 liters of oil and 1.3 million baht.
While the next campaign won’t begin again until December, the foundation is always happy to accept donations at its Sukhumvit Road offices.
