Joined by other officials from Srisoonthorn Municipality, Mayor Chalermpol delivered supplies of dates, rice, sugar, tea, coffee, oil, drinking water, and a range of other items.

“This time is considered a good event as the month of Ramadan is considered the most blessed month for Muslims. It’s the month of doing good deeds,” Mr Chalermpol said.

“Giving support to the mosques for the religious practice of Iftar in the month of Ramadan shows sincerity and encourages people to practice their religion and fosters doing good deeds in the most noble month which will bring understanding to bring about sustainable peace,” he added.
