PHUKET:-- A man who has been severely affected by the COVID-19 fallout took to social media in desperation last week offering to sell one of his eyes.

 

Mr Taweep Mee Phan, 57, from Chalong posted on his Facebook account last Friday (Jan 15) that he was willing to sell his left eye to raise much needed funds to support his family.

 

Mr Taweep was a bus driver for a Chinese tour company for 15 years before losing his job last February when tourists numbers visiting the island dried up.

He has already been offered help and has secured full time employment (according to the extremely short article).

Desperate times drives people to desperate measures... I'm sure as a driver he can find some employment if he continues to look around.

Terrible, imagine how many people are in this desperate situation not only in Thailand but all over the world. The really disgusting situation is governments that are talking about projects that make absolute nonsense in the midst of this disaster.......I'd better shut up as i'll be hung drawn and quartered and banned off TVF for ever......   Imagine the suicide rate in Thailand at the moment ? and this is just getting going ........  Round of golf anyone, or is space travel more of an interest to you ?
