There are some amazing people helping out their local Thai communities to get through this Covid mess in Thailand; foreigners rolling up their sleeves to help communities hard hit by the Thai government’s restrictions and border closures.

Without much in the way of concrete day-to-day assistance from the Thai Government, free daily food, care packs and supplies are being acquired and distributed by volunteers. We salute you all! The situation is happening all over Thailand by many groups working in different ways, many of them foreigners.

Here’s a story of two men whose businesses in Bangkok have been profoundly affected by the Covid situation. But for a year now they’ve put their hands in their own pockets, as well as developing a sophisticated network of volunteers and supplies, to give the Klong Toey ‘slum’ community hope for the future. Now, with a Covid cluster surging through this high density housing area, the situation has become dire.

But Friso and Greg are still packing food and heading to the Klong Toey community everyday.
