Last year we donated the Oxygen concentrator to Kokka Hospital in Lumpang, a city in the northern part of Thailand. This year with the help for coordination from Thoen Downtown Rotary club , District 3360 in Thailand, we were able to join force with 14 Thai Rotary clubs in district 3360 for distribution of 2,100 mosquito nets for people in rural areas of northern Thailand.
