The event was organized by Princess Pa Foundation President Somthawin Yangyoo. She said HRH Princess Soamsawalee, who created the foundation after major floods in 1995, continually works to aid flooding victims.
The Princess Pa Foundation was begun to help close the gap between victims’ needs and support from existing charity organizations. With heavy rain and flash flooding expected in northern Thailand through October, the princess didn’t want to wait until she returned to Thailand to prepare the relief supplies, Somthawin said.
The winners of the transvestite beauty pageant said they were proud to help flood victims, even if it was just a small part of the relief effort.
