Mirror Foundation gives homeless people a new chance at life

In a bid to help homeless people earn some money, the Mirror Foundation on Tuesday (July 14) led them on a cleaning spree around the Victory Monument.



Naming the group of homeless people “Jang Wan Kha”, words that in Thai are normally associated with death and murder, the foundation said it wanted to give the words a positive spin.



It said the aim of the project is to ensure homeless people are given support and an opportunity to work, so they have something to live for.



Those interested in supporting the project can contact Mirror Foundation through its official Facebook page.

Air Force's 'skyrice' helps people hit by Covid-19

The Royal Thai Air Force has installed an automatic rice-dispensing machine to hand out free rice to people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Air force chief Manat Wongwat on Thursday inspected the ATM-like rice dispenser, known as ‘’skyrice’’ at the second floor of Khum Kao Building at Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital.

AM Torphol Orkhaoyoi, director of the RTAF’s Armament Directorate, had studied ris-dispensing methods in Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam and later cooperated with Siwarak Siwamoksatham of the National Science and Technology Department and SK Scale Co to jointly develop an automatic rice dispenser and named it Skyrice, with a Gripen fighter logo.

To get rice, one has to bring a bowl or bag and holds it in front of the sensor-equipped machine. A smart camera, triggered by the sensor, will then take a picture of the person, who is instructed to stamp on a pedal below. The machine will then dispense 1kg of rice into the bowl. The skyrice could hold 100kg of rice donated by the private sector.

ACM Manat said the RTAF floated the idea to help people hit by the coronavirus outbreak.

The RTAF is considering what people needed and would use its knowledge and technology to further help them.

Re: Jang Wan Kha - helping the needy
« Reply #2 on: July 17, 2020, 05:48:58 PM »
like the first article in this thread the way to help those less fortunate, and a better way to help the poor and needy people, is to give them a hand up rather than a hand out. some hungry, some nowhere to live, not a place to call home. they need moral support and given respect makes them aware that someone really does care about them. the governments handout are great if they go to the needy and not just the greedy :-[

Almost 7 million vulnerable people to get Bt3,000 relief payments



People in vulnerable groups who have been affected by the Covid-19 crisis will receive Bt3,000 handouts on Monday.
Wilawan Phayanoi, deputy director-general of the Comptroller General's Department, said today (July 17) that the department will deposit the payments into the accounts of registered vulnerable people on July 20 as part of the government’s crisis-relief policy. About 6.78 million people are thought to be eligible for the payments.

“The Cabinet ordered the Social Development and Human Security Ministry to provide the payments … for children under the newborn infant subsidy scheme, those receiving elderly allowances, and disabled people who have registered with the ministry,” said Wilawan.

“The ministry agreed to offer payments of Bt1,000 per month per person retroactively from May to July, to be made in a single payment on July 20.

“To be eligible for the handout, candidates must have received no money from other government Covid-19 relief schemes, which include the Finance Ministry’s 'Rao Mai Thing Gun' [We leave no one behind] campaign, the Agriculture Ministry’s handouts for farmers, and Social Security payments,” she said.

“The money will be deposited directly into accounts where recipients usually receive their allowances,” added Wilawan.

“For those who usually receive money in cash from a local agency, the department will transfer the handout to those agencies to distribute to recipients.”

good luck to this genuine guy



the story of the hardships that come to surface due to the coronavirus times are just to many to mention. this story is interesting, where a guy loses his job, walks from one side of pattaya to the other, looking for work, with just 5 baht in his wallet enough to buy some water. A report on Saturday (July 18) said that Sarawut Wongtee, a jobless man aged 22 in Pattaya City, had received Bt89,281 from people who were moved by his story on social media. The man has now posted on his Facebook, asking people to stop transferring money to him, as the amount he had received was more than adequate for his needs. what a guy, admits he has enough to survive.


A tale of a man who lost his job due to Covid-19
The Covid-19 crisis has affected people in multiple ways. One jobless man was fortunate enough to be uplifted by the generosity of compatriots, although he previously looked for work every day as a struggle for survival.

When the story of the hardships of a jobless man from Si Sa Ket province went viral, Thai people poured close to Bt90,000 into his account.

A report on Saturday (July 18) said that Sarawut Wongtee, a jobless man aged 22 in Pattaya City, had received Bt89,281 from people who were moved by his story on social media. The man has now posted on his Facebook, asking people to stop transferring money to him, as the amount he had received was more than adequate for his needs.

The man revealed that from the donations he had received, he had given Bt10,000 to a local restaurant so that poor people would be able to order food.

He said he also had transferred Bt9,000 to a children-related foundation, and had got work in a factory located in Rayong province.

Previously, the same man was among those hit hard in Pattaya, in Chonburi province as economic activity has slackened in the area.

Sarawut said he had walked from south to north Pattaya, looking for a job but in vain. He had only Bt5 in his wallet, which he spent to buy water.

The man said that he used to work at a pub before Covid-19 spread in the country. When the pub was closed under the government’s order, he decided to provide mats to rent out on beaches. However, the lockdown led to Pattaya and its nearby beaches being closed to the public. Sarawut said he had to sell his phone to be able to provide for his wife and child.

He lives in vacant bars and continues his search for a job every day, knocking on every possible door. Sometimes he gets Bt50-60 from cleaning dishes but that was not enough. "I sometimes need to beg for food, and feel ashamed doing that," he said.

Garland-seller’s son offers lesson in humility



The photograph of a new graduate crouching at his father’s feet in respect went viral recently.



Instagram user Pharuehas22 said in his post that he was lucky to have been born to a garland seller.

“We should never be ashamed of our parents’ career. I believe everyone can achieve what they dream of,” he said, adding that students who are tired of studying should think about the people working hard to send them to school in the first place.

His post has been widely shared, and people have posted comments praising and congratulating him.

Social media certainly worked wonders for six buffalos, also it drew out the kind hearted thais, those compasionate kind hearted people that contribute to society in more than one way. just goes to show that behind the bad news we hear of everyday, there is some good.

Social media works wonders for six buffalos 



Six buffalos were saved from the knife after they were spotted walking down Bangkok’s Soi Onnut on Wednesday (July 22) and their photos went viral on the net after they were published on the JS100 website.

The buffalos had escaped an abattoir in Srinakarin Soi 32, and though they were captured again, Thai netizens launched a petition to save the animals.

Suan Pan Isarapab farm in Ratchaburi province raised Bt300,000 to purchase them from the slaughterhouse and they were released on Thursday.

One of the donors who helped save their lives was a nun who donated Bt10,000 from her meagre savings.

Re: Jang Wan Kha - free holidays to Covid-19 heroes
« Reply #6 on: July 24, 2020, 10:43:13 AM »
I'm all for that free holidays to Covid-19 heroes. the medical staff nurses and all who worked on the front line, caring people serving as an award for doctors, nurses and other medical staff who have worked hard looking after Covid-19 patients and of course at the same time creating some business for those in the tourism sector.

TAT offers free holidays to Covid-19 heroes



The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a “Holiday for Heroes” project to pay back medical personnel for their work on Covid-19 frontline.

The project is comprised of gift schemes, free trips and many special privileges, which will not just provide opportunities to tourism operators, but will also serve as an award for doctors, nurses and other medical staff who have worked hard looking after Covid-19 patients.

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said the project aims to show gratitude and provide medical personnel in both public and private sectors a chance to take a break after having worked hard over the past several months.

The project is divided into four programmes: Free transportation and hotel for 5,000 personnel picked randomly from people who have registered on the website; discounts and vouchers for various items; special gifts that the public can send to their “heroes”; and free gifts from business operators who want to sponsor these heroes. The scheme lasts until the end of August.

Re: Jang Wan Kha - God bless you

in this day and age this realy shouldn't happen as an Online campaign to help old disabled woman struggling on her own
living in a derelict house and begs passers-by for food. Her case first came to light when a neighbour posted a comment saying the old woman had been left to struggle on her own despite being disabled, seems she didn't want to lose her dignity as Government officials responded by saying they had visited the woman several times, but she refused their help, so all they could do was occasionally give her food and water.

God bless you, and i hope if you have any family they read this article. nationthailand.com
