Members of the Rotary Club of Royal Hin joined the Rotary Club of Hua Hin in a joint project on 23rd-24th August 2018.  The Thoracic Society of Thailand, under Royal Patronage came to the region with two X-Ray vehicles, one at Nongplub, the other at Hua Hin Hin General Hospital No 3 on Soi 89, and the initiative was aimed at treating Tuberculosis in Hua Hin area.  Over the two days about 500 local residents attended and received an x-ray to establish if any lung disease was present.  Any found were taken to Bangkok Hospital in Hua Hin and treated at no cost to themselves.

Members from both Rotary Clubs in Hua Hin attended Hospital No 3 on both days to support this important event for the local community.  They supported medical personnel and attendees by supplying, preparing and serving drinks and meals of minced pork, Thai food, fried eggs, omelettes and rice.  The rice came pre-packaged and ready to serve and the eggs and omelettes cooked on site by Rotarians.

The event also of course raised awareness of Rotary International within the community, and doing its bit to combat TB.
