BIS Phuket calls for boats, life vests to help Bangkok flood victims

PHUKET: British International School Phuket (BIS) is appealing for donations of boats and life vests to help those affected by the floods in Bangkok.

“Due to the flooding problems in Bangkok, Rangsit University has formed a group of rescue team to help the Rangsit and Muang Eak communities and they are desperately in need of additional supplies as the water level has now worsened there,” said an email sent out to parents of students at the school yesterday.

The email called for donations of life vests and small to medium-sized motorized boats to seat four to eight people or regular boats, as the boats currently being used by the Rangsit rescue team were “just not enough”.

“BIS and Rangsit University would be eternally grateful if anyone would be willing to loan or donate a small boat or life vests to this worthy cause and help those whose circumstances are unimaginable.
