Donation for Rohingya migrants reaches 2 million baht

 

(22/01/13) Thai people have continued to provide support for Myanmar’s Rohingya migrants in Songkla (สงขลา) province as the total cash donation has reached 2 million baht and counting.

According to reports, residents from Songkla and southernmost provinces could be seen streaming into a local immigration office with their hands strapped with bags of food and clothes for approximately 200 migrants who are currently being housed there causing the storage room to run out of space.

The influx of assistance has prompted authorities to issue a request to visitors to kindly bring food which can be kept outside for an extended period of time or brand new garments to help reduce the officials’ workload in cleaning used items.

Donation for the Rohingya Fund can be transferred to the Songkla Islamic Council’s bank account number of 934-1-48557-6 of the Islamic Bank of Thailand’s Haiyai (หาดใหญ่) District branch.
