Ambassador and Mrs. Davies traveled to nearby Khlong Toey to visit two charitable foundations that have been serving the city’s poorest children, elderly, handicapped, and other vulnerable communities for decades. During their visit to the Duang Prateep Foundation, they met with the children as well as with a highly trained volunteer team of firefighters and a group of senior citizens who receive health and social services through the foundation. At the Mercy Centre, students performed in honor of their visit prior to touring the facilities which serves as a shelter for street kids, an orphanage, a hospice, a home for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS, a 400-pupil kindergarten, and a community meeting place.
