Nongprue Annual Event.
NONGPRUE ANNUAL GET TOGETHER
Nongprue Municipality covers a much larger geographical area than Pattaya City and is largely residential. As a consequence they have responsibilities for many poor families and particularly families with handicapped children or grownups.
They care very much about these families and strive to make their lives just a little bit easier whenever possible. Every month they invite those that have children that are autistic or have down syndrome to an area along the railway road to participate in Hypo Therapy and to enjoy some time with various games plus some refreshments. The children are well taken care of and it gives the parents an opportunity to relax, visit friends or do some shopping. This is so important for the parents for many of these children need 24/7 care and attention.
Every year they have a get together for about 60 families, sponsors and friends to meet, have some refreshment and to let their hair down in comfortable surroundings.
They have many sponsors for this event which includes, Pattaya Sports Club, Jesters, The Lion Club, Tesco Lotus, Big C, City Hall and others. Food and drink are supllied on the day but the remaining funds are used to provide rice and essential supplies during the year and medical attention when it is needed for many of the children need to see a doctor on a regular basis.
As usual, Nongprue City Hall is well represented by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to welcome everyone. The children have a great time for, following the main event, they receive a small gift, dance to some music before making their way home.
