Pinay teacher in Thailand shares how parents, teachers, friends offer help
When Taal Volcano showed its strength and power on January 12, OFWs in Thailand were quick to send whatever help they can give. Some donated N95 masks, others gave cash.
One of the many who showed compassion is Ms. Melody Trance, a very good friend. Ms. Trance posted on Facebook how she, in her own little way, helped the distress Filipinos in Batangas.
“My own little way of helping the evacuees of Taal Vocano eruption,” her post started. “Now, there are 36 families who are staying in the covered court of Brgy. Santiago in General Trias Cavite. I asked donations from my Thai parents, teachers and friends. They positively replied to my request and happy to give their” tambon” or donations,” she said.
Ms. Trance continued, saying: “This afternoon, relief goods were sent and received by the evacuees. Seniors and children received a small amount for their medical needs. It’s true that help and love for others don’t require blood connections.”
The Filipino teacher in Thailand also thanked the Thai nationals and the school where she works. “Happy and blessed to promote International Camaraderie. Thank you so much Kanungnuch Thamsongsana Noi Sunee Nunu Ohana Pranom Boonrod Jiranan Haewtrakulpanya Tchai Tdate Kusol Suwannarat Kannarat Srivichai and to my Sureelux School Family for your help and support,” she said.
May you be blessed a thousand times, Deeday!
