The “Shut Up and Ride” motorcyclist gang in Chiang Mai is being praised for feeding homeless people every Friday night.

The leader of the project, Patchara Mayerku, says the group leader was carrying out the activity over five weeks and has inspired groups in other provinces to follow suit.

Patchara has posted photos and stories of the charity activities on his Facebook page which have already been widely shared.

He says the group was formed to ride out every evening to enjoy sunset views of Chiang Mai. Then they started gathering and donating gifts to poor hill-tribe children but they found it was inconvenient to ride that far.

The group eventually decided to hand out food, water and medicine to homeless people in central Chiang Mai, Patchara said.

Motorcyclists from elsewhere had now contacted the group to join in the activities but Patchara is recommending they help the homeless in their provinces instead.

Missing 14 year old girl now under government care | The Thaiger

by Kornkamol Aksorndej – The Nation Weekend

A 14 year old girl, reported missing for more than two weeks and later found with an older man in a Chiang Mai apartment, is now under government care.

Pol Maj General Jirabhop Bhuridej of the Crime Suppression Division, says, “We won’t give details about the case. The minor must be protected.”

The girl was found on Thursday with a 52 year old man, who has been confirmed as the father of one of the girl’s friends.

The man, identified only as Ronnachit, is now facing a charge of taking a child younger than 15 years old from her parents.

The girl didn’t contacted her family since December 27, concerning her parents. They feared she might have been abducted and filed a complaint with police in Bangkok last week and sought help from various outlets, including social media.

When police eventually located the girl, she was with ‘Ronnachit’, who said he was going on a sightseeing trip with the girl.

The girl is now under the care of the Social Development and Human Security Ministry.
