“The ruam nam jai activity is one of the many activities organized for Father Ray’s ninth-year commemoration, a time when we all reminisce his goodness and kindness in having dedicated his entire life in helping the disabled to achieve opportunities, get an education, work and not be a liability of the society,” Rattanachai said.

“All of you are considered to have carried on the hard work of Father Ray to stability, particularly, the former disciples treating lunch today,” he added. “It is much more inspiring to see Father Ray’s children returning to express their loyalties and love to the man and the school.”
