Best Western Hotels & Resorts recently embarked on an important social mission, aimed at improving the lives of local children in eastern Thailand’s Chanthaburi province. A team of volunteers from Best Western’s regional head office in Bangkok, led by Niramon Makornpruttipong, senior regional director of administration and procurement in Asia at Best Western recently travelled for more than five hours to visit two schools in remote rural areas of Chanthaburi.
Having previously gathered donations from the group’s associates and partners across Asia, the team delivered these much-needed supplies, including food, toys, consumer goods and sports equipment, to Ban Khlong Daeng School and Ban Bo Cha Om School.
Each school was also given a financial donation to help support it in the future. Best Western’s volunteers were warmly welcomed at both schools and spent a fun-filled day playing games and chatting to the students and teachers.
“We undertook another rewarding social mission in Thailand, as part of our commitment to help underprivileged communities and improve the lives of children in rural regions,” said Makornpruttipong. This important initiative forms part of the global Best Western For A Better World programme, which supports numerous charities around the world.
