SANG FOUNDATION FUNDRAISING TO PROVIDE FOOD RELIEF FOR THE UNEMPLOYED HUA HIN
The Sang Foundation has launched a fundraising campaign to help people severely affected by Covid 19 in Hua Hin.
Since April 2020, the Foundation has delivered food packages, sponsored students to return to school, plus provided medicines for disabled patients. It has been collaborating with the local supermarket and SOS Food Rescue team to deliver and distribute the meals. In total, sang foundation has donated 40,000+ families. The organization is persisting to support those in need.
The third COVID wave hit the business heavily. The Sang foundation is raising THB 900,000 for its food program. In Hua Hin and Cha-Am, many people who work in tourism lost their jobs and urgently need support to feed their families. Recipients of the meals are former housekeepers, hotel staff, and caddies who are no longer receiving regular income.
Mutsumi Adachi, the founder of Sang Foundation, related, “The 3rd wave of COVID has devastated the once lively tourist area. Our goal is to alleviate hunger. With the vaccine rollout, business will slowly reopen, and we hope that they can return to work and be self-sufficient again soon.”
“I have been following Sang Foundation and their activities to distribute food to the needy since COVID hit Thailand. The work that Mutsumi and volunteers are doing in Hua Hin and Cha-Am is very much appreciated. For this area to rebound quickly, it will depend on a little generosity of everyone. I urge everyone to help by donating and share the fundraising info on social media,” said Maythavee Burapasing, the former Miss Supranational Thailand.
Mutsumi shares additional information on how the organisation will utilise the donations:
• The budget is 30 baht a meal and reaching the fundraiser goal means the foundation will be able to produce 30,000 meals plus drinks.
• The transportation, petrol, and miscellaneous combined is 10,000 baht per delivery. The volunteers provide 3 times a week and the budget required is 30,000 baht per week.
• THB 900,000 will support the food program for 30 weeks, which will sustain the community supported until October 2021, at which time the government is planning to open to the tourists.
