PHUKET: The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) office at Patong Municipality today launched a campaign to collect donations of flood relief items from people living in Patong and along Phuket’s west coast.
Donations of any essential items, such as dried canned food, rice, clothes and cash, are welcome, an officer at the DDPM Patong office told the Phuket Gazette today.
Six donation collection points have been set up throughout Patong, at:
- 1) The DDPM building (the fire station) next to the Patong Municipality offices
- 2) in front of the football field opposite Loma Park
- 3) in front of the Patong OTOP Shopping Plaza on Rat U-thit 200 Pi Road
- 4) Mae Ubon Market on Nanai Road
- 5) Banzaan Market
- 6) The police box on Patong Beach at the end of Soi Bangla
Donations will be accepted from 9am until 6pm every day until October 20.
“We have yet to set a date when we will transfer the donated items and money collected to flood victims,” the DDPM officer told the Gazette.
“We may deliver the items ourselves or hand them over to the Provincial Office for them to add to other relief supplies to be distributed,” he added.
