Summary

4 monthly deliveries of essential basic food that was urgently needed to support 10 families in 5 villages in Northern Thailand.

Background

Following on from the initial support from Philanthropy Connections Foundation to provide emergency food support for the families of BPL students during COVID-19 pandemic, some families were still in dire need of help.

Our partner, Ban Pha Lai, identified ten families where the parents previously supported themselves with employment in the local elephant camp and factories but whose work has not resumed.

While the families have tried to grow some food at home, the drought has hit even this small supplement, and nothing grows. Therefore, there is zero income for these ten families.

Goals and Results

Each food package is expected to last a family one month and comprises

  • 30 kgs of rice
  • 20 cans of fish
  • 30 eggs
  • 4 bottles of cooking oil
  • 30 packs of instant noodles

BPL distributed the food packages to these 5 villages

  • Pha Lai Village: 2 families of 10 people
  • Huay Go Village: 2 families of 10 people
  • Pang Dang Nok Village: 2 families of 8 people
  • Pang Dang Nok Village: 2 families of 7 people
  • Huay Pong Village: 2 families of 15 people

We help them, they help others - with your support villagers rally to help those in quarantine.

10 people in a remote village in Northern Thailand had to go into quarantine due to COVID-19 restrictions. Not a problem you may think, but when you have no income, and may even be on your own, how do you survive?

Using the funds from our General Donation Pool we supported with basic foodstuffs such as rice, eggs and cooking oil for the initial number of 10 people for one month. That number grew to 13 but the villagers clubbed together to find food for the additional 3 and collected vegetables to add to the basic food supplies for all.

We donated foodstuff for a month to ensure there was enough to cover the 2 weeks after leaving quarantine to look for work.

A small case in point is the closure of schools here in Thailand forcing students online. When you already struggle to pay the small amounts needed to cover your kid's education, what are your chances of affording smartphones, laptops and a good internet connection? And for students, if your parents never completed formal education, how are they to help you?

For Ban Pha Lai village community this resulted in all of the children failing their school year so Kru Oil, a former teacher at the community school, set up evening classes on her own but quickly found herself swamped by the number of students joining.

19.000 THB (500 Euro) paid for the stipend for 3 teachers for 3,5 months to teach 3 grades of 48 children EVERY NIGHT for 2 hours.

Not letting this generation fall further behind, ensuring that they have equal opportunities, is a huge impact for very little money.

(Psst it is your donations to our General Fund that help us cover these small but essential projects).
