Coronavirus covid-19 kills in different ways.
We are fortunate on Koh Samui that the number of infected people is very low (7 according to current statistics) and so far no deaths. So we are very fortunate.
However, what a number of us do not realise is the devastation this is causing. Thousands of Thais and Burmese, who live on Samui now have no means of support.
This is the reality right now here - these locals, are your massage ladies, hotel workers, restaurant workers, chefs, cleaners, bar man, gardeners, taxi drivers - they have lost their job and as we all know in Thailand, most of them will come here to work and send money home to their parents/children/family.
Last week Sisters on Samui started handing out food packages containing rice and basic shopping items. The first day we saw so many people shy to say they were hungry and can't feed themselves.
No Job, No money, No food!
This is where you can help.
We need donations to buy essentials, RICE, NOODLES, FISH SAUCE, EGGS, COOKING OIL and even such essential items as BABY FOOD, NAPPIES, SANITARY ITEMS
If you can help in any way please donate to our GoGetFunding page
Please note that we are only at the start of this problem with nothing happening until May at the earliest. So PLEASE, PLEASE help now and if possible on a regular basis so we can fight this problem together and be proud that when the time came we stepped up to help.
