AMCHAM Thailand Foundation with Aetna Health Insurance Together Donate 109 sets of Computers to Schools in Nonthaburi
On December 14 at the Nonthaburi Education Area District Office 2, the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand Foundation (ATF) along with member company Aetna Health Insurance donated 109 sets of computers to 30 schools in Nonthaburi.
Damian J Delaney, Managing Director, Aetna Health Insurance; Sarawan Dever, Deputy Director, AMCHAM Thailand; and Kunthaphatt Nutapotipan, Director of Marketing and Product Development, Aetna Health Insurance; presented the computers to Dr. Orawan Saengsuwan, Director and Dr. Dujdao Tobangpa, Deputy Director, Nonthaburi Primary Educational Service Area Office 2; to distribute these computers to schools in the area. The schools were identified by Nonthaburi Primary Educational Service Area Office 2. Dr. Orawan said “The schools were grateful for the donation since they do not have the budget to purchase the required computers.” The event was also attended by teachers and students from recipient schools.
Sarawan Dever, Deputy Director, AMCHAM Thailand; said that “AMCHAM member companies continue to invest in sustainable development of Thailand, and education is a top priority for these companies.” They provide funding for improving the quality of education, requisite skills training for students and teachers, and provide access to infrastructure to give these students an opportunity to fulfil their potential and better their lives. Many of ATF’s students have been employed by AMCHAM’s member companies. Since 1982 AMCHAM has supported almost 900 primary schools throughout Thailand under OBEC. In addition, ATF has provided more than 3,000 university scholarships since 1976.
As an established global healthcare insurer in Thailand, we strive to enhance the healthcare services we provide and serve as valuable partners to members on their healthcare journeys,” said Damian Delaney, Managing Director of Aetna Health Insurance (Thailand) Plc. “However, beyond serving our members, we also have a social responsibility towards the communities in which we operate. This donation benefits both the environment, as well as students and teachers who have had to transition into online learning and teaching due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing regulations.”
In 2004, AMCHAM formally registered the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand Foundation (ATF) to carry out its charitable activities. The ATF is recognized by the Ministry of Finance as a Public Charitable Organization (number 632) and donations are deductible in Thailand.
