APRIL 2012 

This month is the period of Songkran, the Thai New Year, so we thought it was good to do something extra for our sick and elderly people. Songkran is traditionally a time to visit and pay respect to elders, be it family friends or neighbors, and monks.

The first days of the month were again used to do the necessary buying of supplies and to pack them neatly for distribution.

On 11 April all sick and disabled in Tambon Khayai and vicinity were visited by Pia, the sub-districts doctor and her predecessor, who stills gives a helping hand in the village although retired. The pictures of this event you find here below on the page.

On 13 April we participated at the festivity at Wat Ton Satu for the traditional blessings where fragrant water was poured over the Buddha image, into the hands of the monks and the elderly people of Tambon Khayai.

On 20 April Pia participated in a day-out for the elderly people of Bang Pahan district. With 320 people in six buses they went to Kanchanaburi. Pia took care for the touring car of Tambon Khayai. She provided Thai sticky rice with salty pork and tiger balm during the trip.

On 29 April Pia organized on the occasion of Songkran a festivity at Wat Ton Satu for the elderly. About 200 people participated at the event.  All were invited for a portion of Thai noodles, soft drinks and some activities. 130 food supplies were afterwards distributed to the elderly. Pictures follow later.

On the same day we received from Ms Daeng Rellstab clothing and shoes for the poor provided by Ms Lizzy Michael and her friends. We thank Lizzy and her donors for the kind attention and their always great support for our activities.

We will now reduce our activities the coming months until the start of the flooding period in September this year.

The balance for this month you find here under.
