Underprivileged ethnic Karen people in a village on the Myanmar border received welfare cards on Tuesday under the government’s Thai Niyom Yangyuen (Sustainable Thainess) scheme.

They were among 26 residents of Ban Ta Fang in Mae Hong Son’s Mae Sariang district given the cards by district chief Thanakrit Chanthajamrassilpa. 

Most recipients were disabled or elderly and house-bound, such as husband and wife Uthu Samajitlert and Kerathu Samajitlert.
