She told The Pattaya News that they are encouraging medical staffers who are working hard during the pandemic. Kanjana says they are fighting together to win and save the area.

  1. Complete respect to the lady and her staff,doing something meaningful at a local level.
    Lot better than dispatching a government paid for aircraft to a fairly near by country that has many resources and ultra wealthy citizens in it.

  2. That’s what Humanity should be about. But people mostly frustrated with themself always want a scapegoat to blame for their misery. This is an example for all of us to follow. My highest repect for this initiative.
