A Krabi man, Chamnan Duangchan, the father 9 year old Poramet Duangchan, is crying out for help after his son was hit by a car and become so worried that he feels he has to keep his son in a cage while working away from home.
The 9 year old Poramet was hit by a car 5 years ago while going to Pru Dinna School. He was injured in the crash and suffered head trauma as a result of his injuries. Following treatment and medication, he stopped talking and listening.
The father has brought him to several hospitals in Phuket, Trang and Krabi but says his son has never recovered. The boy likes to run away into the jungle or to the dam making his father very worried so he built a 2×2 metre wooden cage to restrain him while he was working away from home. Whenever the neighbors get close to the cage the boy, who usually lays in a hammock inside the cage, rushes to hold the cage bars and growl.
Chamnan says his wife, the mother of his son and his other two children, has left him. He takes care of three children, the oldest, his 20 years old son, left his school to work with him while another is his 15 year old daughter who is still studying. The youngest is Poramet.
“I feel very sad for my son that he has to stay in the cage. We have to feed him from outside the cage and whenever I take him to sleep in the house, he would flee as soon as I fall asleep. I’m very distressed. I just hope that we will find a very talented doctor who can bring my son back as I don’t have money like others. I only work as a worker in rubber and palm plantation,” he said.
If anyone is interested to help this family, please contact Chamnan Duangchan at 08 0073 3469.
