Red Cross Chairwoman Busrawadee Ekachai said during the province’s nine-day Songkran celebration, the Matcha shop will give out five motorbikes per day, as well as refrigerators, televisions, washing machines, fans, irons and other appliances. Smaller handouts include rice, oil, sugar and instant noodles.

Cash collected will be used for blood drives, health promotion, disaster relief, bicycles for the poor, and scholarships.
Khomsan said the Matcha shop is both a way to aid the needy in Chonburi and raise vital funds for the Red Cross and its mission.
