Mae Surin Update

In this article from a few days ago we repeated the requests from The Best Friend for help for refugees at the Mae Surin refugee camp with was destroyed by fire leaving many tens of people dead and hundreds more injured. Help is still desperately needed, you can donate cash or blankets, clothing and household items. Contact the The Best Friend Library at 302/2 Nimmanhaemin Road, Soi 13, Chiang Mai or you can donate online.

However, there is some good news today for Chaa Nay Choo, the 14 year old blaze hero currently being treated for burns in Chiang Mai’s Suan Dok hospital. Nestle Thailand and Baxter Healthcare (Thailand) are donating the medications most urgently needed for Chaa Nay Choo which the hospital was otherwise unable to fund. But, his fight is by no means over as he will still require many months of hospital care and donations to support the cost will still be gratefully received.

In other developments, Irrawaddy is reporting that Thai authorities are blocking access to the camp by outsiders. Meanwhile rumours continue about the cause of the blaze.
