Warm lunch boxes to 200 children at Daegu

  On March 9, A-PAD Korea arrived at Daegu, the most confirmed city in Korea.

 We planned a project suitable for the size of the funding and proceeded quickly. COVID-19 virus doesn't wait for us. We should run faster than COVID-19.

  A project was planned to deliver a proper meal of lunch boxes to 200 children at 13 local children's center in Suseong-gu, Daegu.

 Almost local restaurants were closed because of COVID-19. We selected a few local restaurants near children's center to boost the local economy.

 Thanks to the support, warm lunch boxes were delivered to the Daugu children's center.

 Usually, children at the local children's center ate lunch at school and dinner at the children's center. Due to COVID-19, the beginning of school has been delayed and meal resolution has become difficult. Government provide 5,000 KRW(5$) coupon to children everyday. The restaurant was alomost closed. There were only a few items to eat(kimbap, ramen, etc). 5$ is not enough to have a proper meal.

 Helping Daegu children project is necessary. Currently, only 200 children we can cover. There are more than 5,000 children waiting for help.

 Daegu region's economy is disastrous. Families at the children's center have a greater impact. Conversations with family are disappearing. A small lunch box connects the conversation. We all know the power of a warm meal

 Please support us. We are doing our best to help Daegu.

 Thank you.

Give Thai people the right to breathe clean air

Warmly Supporters

In recent years, air quality in northern Thailand has deteriorated.

The dry season lasts for several months, and it is said that the old saying is that the dry season is good for traveling

There are several reaseons.

Rapid economic growth has led to an exponential increase in vehicles, factories and power plants. Not only northern Thailand, but also neighboring countries had simultaneous economic growth, and mountains and plains repeated and the open terrain played a part in worsening air quality.

There is also tourism. The center of Chiang Mai, "Old Town," "Nim Man Hae-min" and "Around Ping-river," have long been occupied by foreigners. Many people agree that they lose their own color. The northern part of Thailand is all about national airlines, low-cost airlines... It has become a place for countless travelers. The environmental pollution brought on by this trip is not adequately offset.

Outdoor incineration is the biggest cause. It is also different to analyze the causes of the outdoor incineration. Outdoor incinerationwas mostly chosen by the poor or the minorities who had nothing else to do but outdoor incineration. Recently, it has frequently developed to burn vast land and mountains to operate farms such as corn, sweet potatoes and mushrooms, which are seen in Amazon.

Recently, there are people who are working on making fundamental alternatives to outdoor incineration.

This is to promote sustainable development of the region so that even the poor and the minorities will not have to use pesticides or return to the fire war as soon as they are blocked by farming, farming that can be fancied by humans and nature, and secondary processing based on villages, tertiary services, and community-based tourism.

More than 22 million travelers visit Thailand only on trips a year. Our trip also contributed a lot to their gloomy skies. we should also try to solve the countless dusts that our travel flies. People who have traveled to Thailand, who love Thailand, should be more careful in solving this problem than ever before.
