The story of a man’s death at a Thailand orphanage could inspire the world to care for orphaned children.
The Associated Press reports that the story of Chua-Pong Boonchai, a Thai orphanage employee, was just one of many to emerge this week from a Thai court, which ruled last week that he died of asphyxiation during his stint at the orphanage.
Chua-pong, 37, worked for the orphanages for about 10 years.
He was among about 100 employees and volunteers who visited the facility to help with cleaning and housekeeping.
He also visited with children, as well as some who were living in a shelter.
The court also ordered that Chua be compensated for the emotional and psychological distress he endured.
The orphanage had already faced financial and social backlash after the deaths of six children last year, which led to a nationwide shutdown.
