Pattaya City Hall is distributing free meals to the city’s poor and unemployed every day until the end of the month.
Deputy mayors Banlue Kullavanijaya and Manote Nongyai led city workers in the first handout of 1,000 boxed meals at 4 p.m. April 20.
The donations are being funded by city hall, the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation and private charities that want to aid those thrown out of work by the lockdown of Pattaya undertaken to control the spread of Covid-19.
Meal distribution begins each day at 4 p.m. with city hall putting up barriers to control crowds and insisting that people put a meter between themselves and others to prevent any virus spread.
Pattaya City invites people to donate rice, fresh foods, and cooking materials to make foods to give to people in troubles from COVID-19 pandemic at Sawangboriboonthammasatan Foundation Naklua.
