The YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center and Pattaya Issan Association brought motors and pestles to the Redemptorist Vocational School to cook up a som tam lunch to help the school commemorate the ninth anniversary of its founder’s death.
YWCA Chairwoman Praichit Jetpai and Issan Association acting president Jinjutha Phothisa led the pots-and-pans procession with staff from the Pattaya Public Health office to the Pattaya school Aug. 22. They whipped up sticky rice, spicy papaya salad, and fried chicken and pork for the hungry students.
YWCA and Issan Association members are hard at work in the kitchen, stirring up a lunch for the Redemptorist Vocational School.
The three organizations also brought a bounty of daily necessities, from soap and shampoo, to rice, blankets and drinking water, to Father Ray Foundation employees.
The event was one in a series organized by the Father Ray Foundation to mark the Aug. 16, 2003 death of Father Raymond Brennan. His Redemptorist schools and shelters care and educate hundreds of disabled people and orphans.
