It is the Thais right to treat us like bad apples if they wish, they are the majority and we are but visible minorities. If you look at how North America treats minorities, they aren't doing too bad.
I guess you have never been to Canada, minorities, visitors, new immigrants, I guess anyone coming to Canada is treated with respect and the law applies equally to them as well. In fact I would say minorities have it better here than the majority of Canadian citizens which I don't agree with but that is the way it is. You are right about the Thais having the right to treat Foreigners the way they feel and that is why Farang must play by their rules and keep a low profile.
We are guests in Thailand but maybe we are unwelcome guests, other than our financial contribution of course.

Really, Canada has its own issues. The government welcomes immigrants and refugess, but the average guy does not agree with this. I was referring more to the greatest country in the world (USA) where non whites seem to be target practice for the police.

You are right, many people in Canada feel the government is too lenient, myself included. As far as the U.S. goes I have not lived there so I can't comment.

Getting back on topic, Wach is out of ICU but in a recovery ward with around 100 others, and his progress is slowing down and he's becoming very depressed. Folks, the donations came to a halt last night and we were hoping to hit the target so Wach can get his bank book and a new boost of encouragement. Please consider answering the call of support.

I think it means if you bring money you are welcome in Thailand.

Mister Bring Baht.No problem.
Yes,if you bring money you are welcome in Thailand.(as in any country)
It was a response I received,by a Thai official back in 1996 to a question I had regarding why I was placed at the front of the queue and the other Farang were waiting for what appeared to be eternity.
I love Thailand.

I think that most countries like that its visitors, immigrants and visa holders can support themselves. :D

Amazing how easily such a great thread on a great effort somehow got input on how American police treat minorities and how Thai Nationals don't want us here. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Congrats to those who have donated and helped in such a worthy cause.

Thanks Lone Star! I hope that we can keep this topic on the "main thing" and save the dribble for another time and place.

A current photo of Wach and his Aunt and cousin is below. The Aunt speaks English, so that's a step forward in understanding the type of care that will be needed in the future. Wach is now in the surgery recovery ward and there is talk of plastic surgery. One eye is stitched shut and he is fed liquid food via an IV as his face and mouth DON'T work and there is pipework for his nose.

Wach is nowhere near the stage of a smile. He will hopefully get there but recovery in order to walk and make his face work again is estimated at about 3 months before a return to school.

The donation campaign will be left open, but the first 50,000 Baht will be released soon. No celebratory photo will be taken until the lad is able to understand, appreciate and share the moment with the ice cream and cake.

All drops into the donation boxes below will be greatly appreciated by the family.

https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding ... ndonations will close 23/7/17

http://www.weeboon.com/en/campaigns/sav ... ry-his-mum will carry on till around that time as well.

wachdonations@lifeofthai.net paypal account is ongoing for now as well.

The Aussie driver is still in jail and we are led to understand by a relevant party that he appears in court sometime next week.

For all of those who have demonstrated your support and encouragement by giving, your donations are genuinely appreciated and I'm sure that Wach's family will be forever grateful!!!!!!!

As one child obviously didn't die might I suggest the misleading topic title is amended.
