Parts of Thailand have been inundated by floods for over two months now. Recent storm systems only brought more rain to the country, and the weather forcast predicted more rain is on the way. As the country bolstered its flood defenses, Tzu Chi volunteers arrived in Pakjan Township of Ayutthaya Province to help those in need.

Hot meals for Thai flood victims

For the last two months, Thailand has been in the grips of massive flooding. During the crisis, volunteers from Tzu Chi have become a familiar sight for many local people. In Banplab Township, of Bang Pa In County, in Ayutthaya Province, volunteers gave flood victims hot meals, twice a day. They distributed 22,622 vegetarian meals in a week. As the programme comes to a close, Tzu Chi will be launching a mid-term disaster relief plan. Volunteers also gave blankets, medical kits, and food as a token of their appreciation to 240 local people, who helped out during the hot meal distribution.
