The Phua Hua Hin Group, led by chairman Mr. Bowornmongkhol Lerk-u-khot, provided flood relief bags carried in 5 pick-up trucks from Hua Hin to the Asia Update Channel in Bangkok. All the bags, consisting of rice, dried food, drinking water and first-aid medicines, will be given to the flood affected people in Pathumthani, Ayuthaya and Ang Thong.
According to Mr. Bowornmongkhol, The Phua Hua Hin Group, having constantly monitored the flood that occurs in Central Thailand, found that many people in the area had difficulty in finding food and shelters. The Group members thus donated some money and collected supplies given by local people in Hua Hin to help the people affected by the current flooding. After handing the entire donation, the
Group members went to the flooded areas, particularly those in Pathumthani, and helped the people there carried their belongings to move out of the area safely.
Although water level was already receded, a large amount of water is not drained out properly, thus impeding people from moving out of the area. So, they still need more necessary supplies, such as food, boats and water. So, local people and foreigners in Hua Hin who would like to donate those things can contact the chairman of the Phua Hua Hin Group directly at tel. 081 994 902.
The District Chief of Hua Hin Mr. Somchai Bamrungsap said the Hua Hin Municipality, the Tourism Business Association of Hua Hin and Cha-Am and the Market Village shopping mall already set up a center to collect donation – whether money or supplies – from local people in Hua Hin in The donation of around 300,000 Baht in cash has been lately given to the Prachuab Khirikhan Governor who will later forward it to the Ministry of Interior for the flood relief throughout the country. The donors on this occasion include Mr. Jira Pongpaiboon, Mr. Athikhun Bootying, Mr. Suwit Rienrungreung, Mr. Krib Rijasathira, Mr. Sura-at Narongrit and Mr. Thawee Kesa-ngarm among others.
Concerned with the current flood ravage in Thailand, the Director of the Suan Dusit Rajabhat University Dr. Suraphol Siriset has asked some of students to call for financial supports and supplies from people who live along on Phetchakasem Road in Hua Hin. Students gained over 500,000 Baht donation which is now given to 20 schools in Nonthaburi, Ayuthaya, Ang Thong, Pichit, Kamphaeng Phet and U-taradit. Moreover, 20 exchange students from China will visit flood affected schools in Central Thailand to provide food and medicines to the people taking shelter there. This activity is going on until November and donation can be made directly at the Suan Dusit Rajabhat University, Hua Hin Campus.
