His Majesty The King offers relief to flood victims in North East Thailand

Kohn Kaen-

Privy Councillor Ampon Kittiampon and the Rajaprajanugroh Foundation have delivered nearly 3,500 relief kits to residents of flood-affected Khon Kaen in Thailand’s north-east.

The kits were donations from His Majesty the King.

In separate ceremonies, 1,997 kits were presented to flood victims at a hall in Ban Phai district and 1,497 at Wat Sai Thong in Muang district. His Majesty also had mobile kitchens deployed to feed the people attending the events.

The Privy Councillor handed relief kits to three Ban Phai residents in person along with three affected city residents while inspecting flood zones.

Khon Kaen was hit by heavy rains caused by storm Podul last Friday and Saturday. Three people died. More rain is due in the area this weekend.

Since August 31, 41,283 households of 202,838 residents were reported affected in the province by flooding in seven districts – Noen Sila, Chonnabot, Waeng Noi, Nong Song Hong and Ban Hat as well as Ban Phai and Muang.
