Since March 15, a team led by Olivier Gachoud has been distributing meals on the beach road in front of the Soi 9 police station, this action was originally due to end on April 30th before Covid-19 reappeared in Chonburi and businesses started closing once again.

To date, the situation is still more than worrying, Olivier Gachoud and his team made up of farangs and Thais have decided to continue the distribution of meals with always the same objective, that is to say, a daily meal at 8 am in the morning, still on the beach road.

This action will continue throughout the month of May
