Thai Red Cross

‘Daily Necessities for Fighting COVID – 19’ assembles large packages of basic food and hygiene essentials for the poor and vulnerable under home quarantine (THB 639.25 each). The Thai Red Cross reminds everyone that blood donations are still desperately needed. In fact, the current 50% decline in blood donations has affected more than 10,0000 blood diseases patients who need transfusions.

roy rak

Supports women from the Klong Toey community – Bangkok’s largest slum, just from buying their beautiful jewellery. This benefit of job security has a trickle-down effect to families and to many others aspects of life.

Elephant Nature Park

It’s not only the people of Thailand who need your support, it’s also the animals held in captivity who run the risk of starving to death through no fault of their own. Elephants in particular are hard hit at the moment because the cost of feeding an elephant is huge and most elephant reserves rely on tourist dollars to foot the food bill.

Feed For Farm

Farmers all over Thailand are unable to move their stock because of the lack of labour, the decreasing demand, and the absence this year of buyers (or middlemen) who normally get the produce from the farm to the table. To help alleviate this critical oversupply, this help connect farmers across the Kingdom with buyers – that means YOU – and the range of products available includes grapes, cantaloupe, cashew nuts, longan fruit, and more.

Proper Sendoff

Reportedly, some temples have turned away Covid-19 bodies for fear of possible infection. Wat Sao Thong Hin in Bang Yai district of Nonthaburi does the opposite. The Buddhist temple announced, earlier this month, that they willingly accepted those who died of Covid-19 and bodies of people with no relatives and cremate them for free. The Siam Nonthaburi Foundation takes care of transportation of the deceased for free, as well. They promise a proper sendoff for Covid-19 victims, which includes a blessing ceremony, cremation and ash collection. You can help out by donating money to buy oil. The temple estimates that one body requires 80 liters of oil and asks for donations through their bank account, which has been opened specifically for this cause.
