As part of her efforts to help improve living standards of villagers throughout the country, Her Royal Highness Srinagarindra the Princess Mother, mother of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, often traveled by helicopter in northern Thailand to remote hill tribes communities,bringing medical supplies, food, and clothing. The villagers immediately became enamored with this small, elderly lady with a kindly face and a smile for everyone, who always came with doctors, a dentist, and nurses to look after their well-being. They soon came to call her Mae Fah Luang, or "Mother from the Sky". "Mae Fah Luang" is a compound noun, three Thai words,but is not formed in the Thai language of any dialect. It is, in fact, derived from the language of the heart, to describe her arrivals by helicopter to visit and aid the less fortunate.
