Elderly Hawker Couple Shows Appreciation By Donating Over ฿1 Million To Hospitals In Need

Owners of a humble duck noodle shop in Chonburi – 80-year-old Mrs Yenjai Wongpaiboonsri and 83-year-old Mr Prachuap Wongpaiboonsri – donated over ฿1 Million to hospitals to combat COVID-19. The couple donated to two hospitals in Chonburi province – ฿500,000 to Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital and ฿650,000 to Lamchabang Hospital.

Donations Will Be Used To Buy COVID-19 Testing Devices And Ventilators


In an interview with the Daily News, the couple said that this donation comes in the appreciation of the kindness the medical staff showed Mr Prachuap, when they treated him on a previous injury.
