UNICEF statement on the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej

BANGKOK, 13 October 2016 - It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Beloved by his people, and a tireless champion for development and improving the lives of people in Thailand, His Majesty was also a committed advocate for investment in children as the foundation of the country’s development. UNICEF shares in the grief of the entire kingdom and offers its deepest condolences to the people of Thailand at this difficult time.
