For more than 50 years, the Ramathibodi Foundation under the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has successfully raised funds to provide medical treatment to underprivileged patients.

The need is as great as ever and this year, Princess Sirindhorn, as chair of the foundation, has graciously bestowed one of her drawings as the design for the foundation’s latest collection of souvenirs, the proceeds of which will go to purchase medical equipment for Chakri Naruebodindra Medical Institute (CNMI), Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital in Samut Prakan.

Punsiree Kunakornpaiboonsiri, managing director of Ramathibodi Foundation, revealed the story behind this special souvenir collection.

“It is of immeasurable royal grace to the Foundation that HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has graciously bestowed her drawing of two red hearts connected, representing the hearts of both givers and receivers to Ramathibodi Foundation to use as a design of this special souvenir collection,” Punsiree said.

The foundation is hoping to raise more money this year by offering companies and organisations the chance to purchase the souvenirs in bulk as corporate gifts for such special occasions as the New Year. 

The special souvenir collection bearing the Princess’s two red hearts with the slogan “Giver’s and Receiver’s hearts connected” features T-shirts, polo shirts, shirts, sweaters, caps, pencil cases, calico bags, polyester bags, pins, books, cushions, blanket pillows, neck pillows, drinking glasses with cover, vacuum flasks, pill cases, and folding umbrellas.

The products are now available for sale at Ramathibodi Foundation’s souvenir shop. Purchase can also be made online at or call (02) 201 2222 for more details.
