Governor helps donate to unprivileged

SUNDAY, August 27, 2017

Kusoldharm Phuket Foundation has donated food to 1,500 underprivileged people for the Por Tor Festival.

The foundation, with the help of Phuket’s Governor, arranged a donation ceremony yesterday in front of the foundation building. It started with the worshipping of ancestral spirits, a rice donation for the students’ lunch project and donations for underprivileged people, who received rice and dried food.
“We make this donation every year for students and underprivileged people, both for Phuket locals and people living in the neighbouring provinces,” said Benjawan Tumpanuwat, Kusoldharm Foundation President.
The Por Tor Festival is a local tradition for people to make merit for the spirits and donate food to people in need.
 The main locations for the ceremony in Phuket included the downtown market, Ranong Rd and Por Tor Gong Shrine (aka Bang Niew Shrine) in Sapanhin Park.
