The Flood Emergency
The kids near Mae Sot are amongst the poorest anywhere. Some live in orphanages where there’s barely enough money to feed them. Those with parents live in slums and shanty towns. Their parents work long hours in factories to eke out an existence.
Whole shanty towns have been washed away. Orphanages and schools have been flooded. And food supplies have been washed out.
Rainy season rice crops have been destroyed, water sources contaminated, livestock lost. A massive community effort has seen them through these early weeks.
Now, we need your help to ensure that these children can eat in the coming months.
