The boy was hit by a car four years ago and suffered trauma to his head. His father, Chamnan Duangchan, has admitted to forcing him live in a cage while he is at work, claiming the boy is difficult to control and prone to running away.
Krabi officials visited the house on Tuesday to check the boy’s condition and collect information about his medication to assist the family.
The Red Cross and Social Development and Human Security initially gave the family Bt3,000 and rice and dried food.
Paisan Srithep, Klongtom district chief, said the Red Cross had contacted a neurological specialist to check the boy’s condition while he had spoken with the village chief to provide assistance for the education of the boy’s older brother.
Meanwhile, Chamnan said he was very appreciative of the assistance.
“I would like to thank everyone that has helped us and thank for publishing the story about my son, because it brought us a lot of help. There has been about Bt400,000 in donations transferred to us, which I will use for his medication.
“I still have hope to cure him and get him back,” he said.
