The Camillian Social Center in Rayong is focused on HIV/AIDS in the community and the provision of assistance and care of HIV infected people, AIDS patients, and support for the families and children of deceased AIDS patients.
The Center also offers training in safe-sex education and HIV/AIDS prevention and it's mission is the care of those infected and prevention of the further spread of the disease. In January 2021 the Center entered its 25th year of delivering critical care for HIV/AIDS patients in the Rayong area.

The donated items, including clothing, bags, shoes, toys and books in good condition formed part of the sale items for the Camillian World AIDS Day Fair held at Khok Nong Na during 26-27 November 2021. The proceeds from this event will go towards the provision of utilities for children and patients.
