  • Description

    THIRTY KILOMETRE FROM THE THAILAND'S CAPITAL OF BANGKOK, IN THE TOWN OF HONBURI, THAI GOVERNMENT IS RUNNING A REFORMATORY...A LARGE MODERN BUILDING WITH WELL TRAINED STAFF.

    TO THIS REFORMATORY WITH 452 CHILDREN, MOSTLY PICKED UP FROM STREETS BY POLICE AND DELINQUENTS AND THOSE COMMITTED BY JUVENILE COURTS, A MESSAGE OF GOOD WILL WAS RECENTLY SENT ACROSS THE OCEANS BY AMERICAN JUNIOR RED CROSS.

    IT WAS A GREAT DAY FOR THE CHILDREN IN REFORMATORY WHO ARE BEING TRAINED TO BECOME GOOD CITIZENS OF THAILAND, AND TAUGHT TRADES TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES.

    AFTER AN ENJOYABLE BATH IN THE REFORMATORY POND, THE BOYS GATHERED IN THE MAIN HALL TO RECEIVE THE PRESENTS FROM AMERICAN JUNIOR RED CROSS. THE GIFTS AND GREETINGS WERE DISTRIBUTED BY THE THAI JUNIOR RED CROSS, AND SATRI PRACHAKORN SCHOOL GIRLS.

    TO HANDICAPPED CHILDREN WHO HAVE KNOWN SO LITTLE OF KINDNESS WHITE THEY WERE ON ROADSIDES, IT WAS ANOTHER PROOF THAT THEY TOO HAVE FRIENDS NOT ONLY IN THE REFORMATORY BUT IN FAR AWAY
