A Prachuap Khiri Khan woman who cannot walk after gaining about 200 kilograms of weight asked for help to lose weight on Monday.
Urai Noowan, 59, a resident of Tambon Pak Praekk in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Bang Saphan Noi district, said she could not afford going to a hospital for treatment of her obesity.
She lives with her husband, Kamol Somjit, 52, and her grandson, Nattapong Somjit, 11.
Her weight prevents her from walking and 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.
He said his not heard from his son for the two years since he left the grandson in his care.
