Several local organisations have rallied to help a homeless Japanese man living on Pattaya beach after being left destitute by the Covid-19 crisis. It’s understood that Pattaya Tourist Police found the visibly upset man on the beach with his luggage.

After a representative from the Pattaya Japanese Association was called to translate, police learned that the man had been stranded in Pattaya since the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus and had run out of money. The Pattaya News reports that the Pattaya Japanese Association paid for the man to stay in a local hotel and provided him with food, before organising his transport to the Japanese Embassy in Bangkok.

It’s understood he is now in the care of the embassy, where officials are arranging for him to return to his family in Japan.
