On August 5th, 2019 at 1.45 pm Her Royal Highness Princess Bajarakitiyabha Narendira Debyavati followed up on the implementation of the Kamlamgjai Project at Nakhon Si Thammarat Central Prison. The Minister of Justice, Mr. Somsak Thepsutin, the Board of Directors of the Ministry of Justice and the Head of the Prison in Nakhon Si Thammarat had the honour of welcoming HRH on this opportunity. HRH pressed the button to uncover and reveal the sign of the "Hlaou Ruam Jai" building, along with visiting the inside facilities of it. Afterwards, HRH moved to the front of the building where she planted one "Yellow Star"-Tree. This was followed by a visit to the female part of the prison, where HRH entered the Mother-Child-Room and observed a demonstration of educational training. Additionally, some of the female inmates had the opportunity to talk about their problems and needs with HRH. Then, entering the male part of the prison HRH Princess Bajarakitiyabha paid a visit to the jail medical services, where she surveyed the location and visited the sick inmates. She also presented some useful utensils to the sick prisoners. Before HRH left the place, she settled herself on a chair and gifted souvenirs to all the inmates by handing them over to the representatives. HRH Princess Bajarakitiyabha then attended a performance presented by the inmates and enjoyed a concert by local musicians.
The visit was at the right time to remember her last visit, where she established the Kamlamgjai Project on May 30th, 2010 and introduced the "Creating Kamlamgjai for the Town of Khon" Project.
