Donate to help flood victims in Thailand
Earlier this year we ran a campaign raising funds to help victims of floods which devastated our very own Krabi province. Through your donations we were able to provide real help to people affected by the floods and help them get back on their feet.
Now, after more than two months of heavy rain across Thailand, an estimated 8.2 million people are being affected by the worse flooding the country has seen for fifty years. Flooding and mudslides are affecting 60 out of 77 provinces, half of which are completely inundated. Bangkok itself, only 2 metres above sea level, is under threat as heavy rain continues, run-off from flooding in the north pours down country and high tide levels approach. With fears rising that the worst is yet to come, we’re asking for your help again.
In Pathum Thani province, north of Bangkok, Thammasat University is being used as a temporary shelter for people who have lost or been evacuated from their homes. As of 11th October there are 1600 evacuees being housed there, although the maximum capacity of 2000 people is expected to be reached within a day or two as evacuation continues.
Many arriving at the university have lost, or been forced to abandon, all their belongings and are in urgent need of basic essential items, such as bedding, clothing and sanitary products.
We aim to support flood victims and help them to get back on their feet. Through your donations we can provide essential items and give some comfort to people in their time of need, helping maintain some sense of normality as they look to rebuild their lives.
Please donate whatever you can here, whether it’s five pounds, fifty dollars, five hundred euro or five thousand baht, whatever you can spare, every little helps – and spread the word by sharing this blog.
Thank you for your support and watch this space for updates
