The Delegation, guided and advised by Mrs. Jariyaporn Boonthawee, dedicated an afternoon to meet and offer daily life necessities to seven needy households in Luang Po Khao Community.
Mrs. Jariyaporn, who volunteers as Village Director, was assisted by Miss Supawadee Niyomthong and other members of « Doing Good for Homeland » Charity Club (to whom belongs the Vice Delegate too), who had invited the Venerable Abbot Yan Trailok, Deputy Spiritual Chief of Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya Province, to welcome His Excellency Antonio Benedetto Spada.
The second part of the program was devoted to visit a bedridden woman, then the group proceeded to bring donations to two more families living in Ayutthaya Railroad slum.
The historic city of Ayutthaya, ancient capital of Siam, grew from the 14th to the 18th centuries to be one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan urban areas and a center of global diplomacy and commerce. Ayutthaya is now a popular tourist destination for its World Heritage monumental archaeological ruins and temples celebrated for their splendour, but not many sightseers have ever heard of these disadvantaged neighbourhoods. Special thanks to Mister Adrian Borg Cardona and Mister Surasak Satho for many useful suggestions.
