Companies and other individuals who have the means to help are stepping up and extending help to Filipinos in Thailand and other people in need during this health crisis.
In Phitsanulok, at least 20 households received food packs from Western Union, which contained rice, noodles, eggs, coffee and fresh chicken meat.
According to Ms. Kathy Gonzales, Western Union responded without hesitation to a request of extending help to Filipinos in Thailand who have been affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Filipinos are our close friends,” said Western Union in a reply. “It is a pleasure to be part of this activity to help our friends in this difficult situation,” the worldwide financial services and communications company added.
Jeffrey Amparo, one of the recipients, expressed gratitude to the food packs from Western Union. “The spirit of camaraderie and compassion is the prevention of human suffering through patience, alertness, courage, and kindness. Thank you, Western Union,” he said.
Other provinces that received aid (total of 100 food packs) from Western Union include Nakhon Ratchasima, Chonburi, Chiang Mai, as well as small groups and individuals in Krabi, Kanchanaburi, Samut Prakan and Chumpon.
