Pattaya officials set up a stand on South Pattaya Beach to keep records of homeless people in the area and promised to improve their living conditions and integrate them back into society.
The operation took place in front of Mike Shopping Mall yesterday, June 30th, under the direction of Pattaya Deputy Mayor Wuthisak Rermkitjakarn and Director of the Homeless Protection Center Teeraporn Srichand.
According to Teeraporn, the population of homeless people in Pattaya was essentially rising during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic when many employees were forced out of their jobs and became homeless, subsequently losing connections with all state agencies.
As a result, yesterday’s mission was to help the homeless people at least reconnect with state agencies to receive basic welfare such as having a proper ID, a shelter, a job, and Covid-19 protective equipment.
“We want to improve these people’s living conditions by providing them with basic state welfare and help them integrate back into society as much as possible” Teeraporn stated.
According to the officials, they would run a similar operation every second and fourth Thursday of the month.
