With the COVID pandemic, huge numbers of people suffering from the effects of poverty became commonplace in Pattaya and elsewhere.
Emergency ad-hoc handouts of simple food parcels have been generously provided to those who would otherwise starve.
Churches Together understands that although in light of the pandemic poverty and distress has been brought into sharp relief for all to see; in reality, it has always been there. Those living lives of subsistence, those making choices in order to make money to feed their families or educate their children.
We want to create a permanent service that will feed those who are hungry today, end the cycle of poverty for tomorrow and work towards providing long-term solutions to the problems of those who will inevitably live as an underclass long after the immediate effects of the pandemic have passed.
