After a year of zero foreign tourism, the Thai island of Phuket is now at a critical juncture. There are hundreds of thousands of people, previously employed or sustained from the tourist industry, in urgent need of help. And it isn’t coming from the government.

Sean Stenning from 5 Star Marine, his family and employees, are now at the forefront of a major program to keep the hope alive for thousands of families waiting out the restrictions and border closures that have destroyed their livelihood and chance to feed their families.

The Thaiger sincerely thanks all the people working with Shaun and the One Phuket project.
