SATTAHIP – August 12, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; A charitable project for autistic children to honor the Queen’s 80th birthday was announced by The Mariners’ Wives Association and Queen Sirikit hospital foundation, Royal Thai navy, patronage of H. M. King, and Queen Sirikit hospital, the Naval Medical Department, Aphakornkiattiwong, Naval base Sattahip, Aqua Unit Patrol Squad, and the Marine corps.

Mrs. Pornjit Hrunrerngrom, chairman of Mariners’ Wives Association presided over the opening ceremony of the project, “Treating Autistic Children by Atmospheric Pressure Oxygen Room (chamber room) and Horses.” Joining the ceremony were committees from mariners’ wives associations from the central and provincial areas, as well as government officers and families.

Vice Admiral Sucheep Changsawake, director general of the Naval Medical Department, and his team came to welcome attendees at Queen Sirikit Hospital, Naval Medical Department, Sattahip Chonburi.

The Vice Admiral said that to honor the queen, the Naval Medical Department cooperated with Mariner Hospital organization and Aqua Unit Patrol squad, Marine Corps, to run the project, and to give the queen merit for inspiring the project, Treating Autistic Children by Atmospheric Pressure Oxygen Room (chamber room).


The project began on August 12, 2010. Since then, there have been 195 children who got treatment at the Underwater and Aviation Medicine division, Aphakornkiattiwong, naval base Sattahip; as well as 99 others at the Underwater and Aviation Medicine division of the Naval Medical department.

There are about 750 registered children waiting in the queue for the next openings. About 80 percent of the children who had passed the project had developed their communication, perception, and social skills while doing their daily routines, which has made their parents very satisfied and attracted more parents to send their children.

The second part of the project, “Horse Treating For Autistic Children” was begun on behalf of Marine Corps’ Wives Club. It was supported by the Mariners Wives Association, because it was related to the project of treating autistic children with the atmospheric pressure oxygen room.

So far, there had been 108 children from ages 2- to 15-years-old participating. In the morning the children would be trained to ride horses for about 30 minutes to an hour. Then they would be later treated in the oxygen room at Aphakornkiattiwong hospital. The treatment period lasts for two months.

The benefit to the children from being trained to control horses was that it helped them concentrate more and they gained self-confidence, which resulted in better physical and mental development.

For the occasion of the holy year that Queen Sirikit will be 80 years old, the Mariners’ Wives Association will continue the projects from August 12, 2012 to August 12, 2013.
