Mercy Pattaya - COVID Update
The Thai government has made the decision to extend the COVID emergency for another month. Many of the community residents we serve are still out of work and are not making any wages. We at Mercy with the tremendous help from many different sources are continuing our food distribution and any other help we can provide. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we are doing our best to not expose ourselves and also protect the residents we are serving.
In an effort to ease the difficulties faced by people standing line for hours in intense heat, MERCY distributed over 200 meals, water and twice as many basic food packages via a pre-arranged numerical system, whereby individuals could receive the help they needed during the cooler time of day. With the help of other caring local volunteers to help speed up the process, the Needy Neighbours Project was a great success. Thank you to everyone who made this possible – together we can really make a difference.
Although some people are now able to return to work, there is still great need in the city. Here you see one of the youngest ‘delivery boys’ in the community taking food for the family.
Today we made 106 bags of Thai food to give to the community, we did this distribution in 30 minutes the people came from everywhere for food I couldn’t believe it. We hadn’t even left the soi and they had eaten & finished what hot food we gave them. Tomorrow we head out again. Pray for protection over us as we reach out to the communities and be the light in this time.
With the help and guidance of the Mercy Centre (Len Len, Jules and Nara) today we prepared 38 family packs of food and supplies and delivered them to the slums on Theppasit road. The families were very happy to receive these packs and to see them smile was priceless!
We will continue to keep visiting and supporting the people living in these poor areas until the donations stop coming.
Thank you for your thoughtful gift to Mercy Pattaya. We’re so grateful to have your support. Please know that with your generous donation, you’re touching the lives of many.
