Chaiyot told the gathering that this dinner treat was not only to help the unfortunate children in society, but also for officers of the same unit to work together, unite, respect one another and realize the importance of charity.

The officers also donated toys, sports equipment and cash.

Veera said 35 of the 150 orphans housed at the orphanage suffer from ailments ranging from paralysis to autism. Daily expenses run about 80,000 baht, which comes entirely from donations. He thanked Immigration for their help.
