Australian Embassy Direct Aid Program for COVID-19 Relief Activities

The pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to all, but the disadvantaged and marginalised have been hit the hardest. On #WorldHumanitarianDay, Australia honours all local responders and humanitarian workers who help people in Thailand and around the world.

The Australian Embassy in Thailand is pleased to announce grants for COVID-19 relief activities under the Direct Aid Program to:
1. Bangkok Community Help Foundation – to supply care packages to vulnerable people in Khlong Toei
2. The Mirror Foundation, Chiang Rai – to provide COVID-related assistance for local communities and migrant workers
3. Baan Dek Foundation – to provide care packages to quarantined construction camp workers in Bangkok and Chiang Mai
4. Service Worker IN Group Foundation (SWING) – to assist sex workers and vulnerable groups in Bangkok and Pattaya with food and medical supplies
5. Scholars of Sustenance Foundation, Phuket – to support delivery of donated food to vulnerable communities
6. ACTED Thailand – to distribute COVID-prevention kits and train camp facilitators in camps on the Thailand-Myanmar border

#Australia is proud to collaborate with our partners in providing much-needed humanitarian assistance to vulnerable communities in Thailand. We believe in the adage, “no one is safe until everyone is safe” as we look forward to a brighter post-pandemic future.
