Hundreds of people severely affected by the global pandemic received a hearty meal from Pattaya’s Norwegian community on Thursday.



Father Annstein Lothe, pastor of the Norwegian Church Abroad, Sjomannskirken, on Thappraya Road Soi 5, rounded up the help of Norwegian and Thai volunteers to present 300 sets of rice, dried food, canned fish, drinking water, and waffles to the recently unemployed and low income earners.

A parade of grateful and hungry motorcycle taxi riders, company employees, construction workers, and others lined up to first pass through a screening process where their hands were washed in sanitary gel. They were also spaced apart to make sure during the entire process social distancing was maintained.
