Thailand Temple Where Cancer Patients GatherSeptember 2013
Seeking for Traditional Remedy and Inner Peace
What motivated me to cover Khampramong Temple is that QOL for living with a disease or a disability has become even more important recently when snowballing medical and welfare expenses caused by advancing aging society have become a serious problem not only for an individual but also for a country. Thailand, following Singapore, has established a reputation as a country to offer advanced medical care at relatively low cost, attracting a lot of medical tourists from abroad. There are many luxurious hospitals designed for the well-to-do in the country. On the other hand, general public in Thailand are paying more attention to traditional remedy linked with their religious faith.
