Governor Leads Volunteer Effort to Enhance Hua Hin Hospital Landscape on Ananda Mahidol Day


On June 9, 2023, Mr. Sathien Charoerean, Governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, took charge of the event “Volunteer Spirit to Improve the Landscape of Hua Hin Hospital” in commemoration of the passing of His Majesty King Ananda Mahidol Phra Atthamaramathibodin. The ceremony was held in front of Hua Hin Hospital on Petchkasem Road and witnessed the active participation of various individuals, including Mr. Phon Krit Phuangvalaisin, Hua Hin District Chief, Ms. Pailin Kongpan, Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin, tourist police, border patrol, doctors, nurses, and dedicated volunteers. Together, they united their efforts to enhance the hospital’s surroundings and create a more pleasant environment.

His Majesty King Ananda Mahidol Phra Atthamaramathibodin, also known as Rama 8 of the Chakri Dynasty, was born on September 20, 1925, in Heidelberg, Germany. He was the eldest son of King Mahathaladhibesra Adulyadej Vikrom Phra Boromrajchanok and Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Boromarajonani. His family lineage includes distinguished figures such as Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, Princess Galyani Vadhana Krom Luang Narathiwat Ratchanakarin, and His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej Maha Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great Borommanatbophit, who ascended to the throne on March 2, 1946, and made remarkable contributions throughout his reign.

During his reign, His Majesty demonstrated a strong commitment to education and closely observed the operations of the National Library. He visited various educational institutions, including Chulalongkorn University and Debsirin School, where he himself had received education during his youth. His presence at graduation ceremonies, such as the inaugural ceremony of his reign held at Chulalongkorn University Auditorium, and the conferment of degrees at the Royal Medical College Auditorium, Siriraj Hospital, University of Medicine, emphasized his dedication to nurturing a skilled medical workforce to serve the people. These initiatives paved the way for the establishment of the esteemed Faculty of Medicine at Chulalongkorn University.

On June 5, 1946, His Highness sowed rice at the demonstration plot of Kasetsart University, marking a significant moment in his final engagements. Tragically, His Majesty King Ananda Mahidol passed away on June 9, 1946, leaving behind a remarkable legacy of contributions to the medical and educational sectors. In gratitude for his immense benevolence and impactful endeavors, June 9th is now observed as “Ananda Mahidol Day,” a day dedicated to honoring his noble deeds and the enduring legacy he left behind, which has shaped the country’s security and the well-being of the Thai people.
