The rainy season in Thailand is known to be from mid-May to October each year, but this year the flooding came very early in the months of March to the southern provinces including the tourist island of Kok Samui. At least 730,000 rai of agricultural lands have been submerged in water, and areas that experienced flash floods included the Nakhon Si Thammarat province, with about 1,000 people in four villages who were completely cut off from rescuers.

Since commencing the "Blanket them With Love" Project, the Foundation has been closely following the news on the Flooding situation in Thailand.

The Foundation was able to contact a small village school in Nakhon Si Thammarat that was under about 1 metre of water, and suffered massive destruction to their educational equipment. An urgent call for donation of clothings, blankets, school books, stationery, other educational materials and even some daily neccessities were made, collected and packed.

When the floods subsided and repair works started, nearly 50 boxes of love gifts were sent to the needy school.

It would seem that the country will have no respite from the tropical storms and floods, as the National Disaster Warning Centre on Friday (Sep 9) issued a warning for people in the Northeast and East to prepare for widespread scattered rain with heavy falls in some areas and the danger of floods and landslides from today to Sept 12.People living near hillsides and waterways in Nakhon Phanom, Mukdahan, Roi-Et, Yasothorn, Surin, Si Sa Ket, Amnatcharoen, Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Nayok, Prachinburi, Chanthaburi and Trat were warned to prepare for heavy rain, flash flooding and landslides, the centre warned.

We thank all Donors for your kind donation, and your heart of love. We in the Foundation would willingly be your hands and feet, to bring your heart (of Love) to those in need.  Any suggestions and feedbacks are most welcomed. Cheerio till the next update!!
