Pattaya Redemptorist School for the Blind

Workers from one of Thailand largest chain of pizza restaurants recently arrived at the School for the Blind, with a huge pile of pizza boxes.

The smell of pizza soon wafted through the school and the students came rushing out of classrooms and made their way to the dining room. After fighting past each other to find their seats, the pizza boxes were passed out, one to each table and the students helped themselves.

As in most school canteens, as soon as the children started eating there was silence, except for one word coming from each table, ‘Aroy, aroy’, the Thai word for delicious.
