A woman who can’t walk after putting on about 200 kilograms yesterday asked for public help so she can lose weight.

Urai Noowan, 59, a resident of Tambon Pak Praekk in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Bang Saphan Noi district, said she could not afford hospital treatment for her obesity.

She lives with her husband, Kamol Somjit, 52, and her grandson, Nattapong Somjit, 11.

Her weight prevents her from walking, so she exercises by moving around in a sitting position. She requires the support of her husband to take a shower or use the toilet.

Kamol said his wife developed obesity about 10 years ago and he has had to take care of her ever since.

As a result, he said he can’t seek work and is now living on a Bt600 monthly allowance for the elderly.

He said he had not heard from his son for the two years since he left the grandson in his care.
