Miss Thailand Universe Chanyasorn Sakornchan was among the many Plutaluang residents who reached into their pockets to aid flood victims in Ayutthaya.
Saying she was representing the people of Sattahip, the beauty queen donated a supply of betel, a leaf used both as a stimulant and for medicinal purposes, intended for the elderly people of Sanao District in Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya.

The donation was just one of many made at the Plutaluang Market on Sukhumvit Road. Gov. Chaichan Iamcharoen and area police set up the donations tent to solicit cash, dried food, drinking water, blankets, antibiotics, medicine and other items for residents hit by the worst floods in a decade.
Chaichan said more than 100,000 baht had been collected by Oct. 2.
