Parents of disabled children seek lottery tickets quota
Parents of children with disabilities urged for the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) yesterday for help to reserve a quota of lottery tickets for them. They said selling tickets was a way for them to earn money to raise their children after they quit daytime jobs to care for their kids.
The group, led by Krisadaporn Polyiem, submitted the request and a list of names of 62 parents of mentally disabled children via the Complaint Receiving Centre at Government House. They said the Government Lottery Office had turned down their request for a quota on behalf of the children on grounds that the kids were not yet over 20 and could not sell the tickets by themselves.
