In the confined months of COVID-19, nearly 21,000 children face food insecurity. 

Their families lost their jobs and income. For them, hunger may be more frightening than the virus. 

Meanwhile, their communities are not equipped to provide basic health care supplies to protect them against a major pandemic. 

Your support is urgently needed.

How the coronavirus impacts small school children

Small schools have limited resources to offer preventive supplies to children, personnel and their community. Although the government provides support, it is not sufficient for responding to the pressing crisis. Many schools remain in need of support before reopening in July 2020.

Students from the most vulnerable backgrounds are malnourished during prolonged school closures. Their families, who shoulder heavier financial hardships due to unemployment and lockdowns, are unable to put enough food and essential nutrition on the table.

What ActionAid Thailand is doing

ActionAid Thailand has been working with small schools to ensure that every child, regardless of their background, is able to access quality education. But the COVID-19 pandemic has posed an unprecedented global and national health emergency. We urgently need your support and appeal for 6.5 million baht to support the COVID-19 relief response.

Essential supplies: We are distributing preventive supplies e.g. liquid soap, hand sanitisers, cloth masks, cleaning supplies to 80 small schools to help them meet health standards and be able to conduct classes when the new term begins.

Food security: We are setting up community kitchens at 80 small schools to provide 20,761 children and their family members with nutritious meals.

With your support, ActionAid Thailand will be able to immediately help the most vulnerable children in 80 communities who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please donate to us today until 30 June 2020. As soon as your support is received, we will begin sending food packages to those most in need and ensure the schools have essential health supplies ready.
