PHUKET: The food relief and basic supplies drive by the Feeding Friends Patong campaign came to an end today (July 9) after providing more than 20,000 meals to people in Patong left without any form of income to support themselves due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Long-term Phuket expat Wal Brown, owner of Sweet Restaurant in Patong, who launched the campaign with Tony Love Linay of Tong Fa Massage and Spa, told The Phuket News that 520 contribution bags were handed out today, twice the usual daily number.

 

“The bags today also contained twice the standard amount of food staples so that people will have food to last longer,” Wal said.

I don't think these people ever had a means to support themsealves.  Unless swinging in a hammock is a job title.

there is a second wave coming 

 

not from CV-19

 

but from the notion that now some places are open that the new normal is going to feed the masses that have no income

 

it isn't happening - pretty dire from what I have seen

 

next month when immigration tell the die hards to get outta dodge within 3 weeks the short burst of busy for the few will end
