Mrs. Jiraporn said joining hands together for charity was very meaningful and rewarding for those who had succeeded in this world for making a compassionate society as it promotes the feelings of brotherhood, sympathy and harmony among humanity. This event will further foster the bonds of friendship between the people of two countries, adding even a small amount of money will help them provide a better living condition to those unfortunate children.
