We have continued to distribute food and supplies to families in Northern Thailand who have been negatively effected by losing jobs due to Covid. One of our recent distributions was to a construction worker camp in Chiang Mai where 60 families were on strict lockdown and not allowed to work. We also distributed to migrant worker camps in two other locations, providing 45 and 15 sets respectively. Most recently this month we created specific food packages for 130 people in the Hot area of Chiang Mai. This was an area where most things were closed for 6 months and is just now slowly opening up. The community was very thankful for the food assistance.

Even though Thailand has been facing it's worst Covid wave of sickness since the beginning of the pandemic, we have still had the opportunity to go out and help our tribal brothers and sisters in a safe manner. I say brothers and sisters because even if we are not related by blood, we are still family and take care of one another. We recently went to Doi Saket District to deliver about 40 food packages for the elderly, the poor, and bedridden. We spent time with each person or family to encourage them through this difficult time. In years past, many families would be able to survive by living off the land, but in this day and age, many families depend on jobs outside their village for some or all of their income for food. We heard of one family in this situation deep in the jungle. The husband had to be far away for work and the mother was at home taking care of their 4 children. We had to hike 2 kilometers through the jungle to reach her but she was so grateful for the food and supplies. We also recently visited Ban Pang Daeng School to provide lunch and gave school supplies, toothbrushes and toothpaste kits to 120 students. Thank you for helping us meet real needs of these families during the Covid pandemic.

The "Feed 1,200 Thai Families Covid Relief Program" distributed enough food and essential items to 550 families to ease the financial pressure they are facing. The food helped to sustain them for at least a month as many search for new employment or are able to go back to their previous employment as Covid restrictions are reduced. This will not solve all of their problems but we are trying to bridge the gap during what is hopefully a brief period of unemployment due to the pandemic. We distributed 550 food packages with love and care to some villages in Yangmuen (Hilltribe people in 4 villages) , Borkhew and Maecham (Hilltribe people with no electricity in 2 villages), Doisaket and Thawangtan (helping eglected people in the city area). As we share with these families it will give them hope and help them overcome the obstacles they are facing at this time.

In the last few months we have distributed over 500 food packages to needy people in many remote mountainous regions in Northern Thailand. Most of them were villages of hilltribe people in Chiangdao, ChomThong, and Samoeng areas. Not only did we bring food but we also visited the homes of the elderly, sick, and disabled people to bring love, care, and hope during this time of need during the pandemic. Even though there were many needs to be met, it was a life saving and life changing process for both our team and the people we visited. We used this experience as an opportunity for 20 young adults to gain experience serving others. As future leaders in their communities, we wanted to give them an opportunity to learn how to love, encourage, and support other people in their region. We were able to safely do this by following the COVID precautions given to us by the Thai government. The people we served were full of joy and we saw many tears of gratefulness from the tangible love and care we brought to them.
