Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited (CP Foods) handed over survival bags to the governor of Khon Kaen to help flood victims in the province as part of its on-going "CPF Food From The Heart Against Floods” project.
The flood-aid efforts were made with the aim to help relieve hardships faced by flood victims, giving them moral support, and ensure they recover.
Khon Kaen governor, Somsak Jangtrakul, received 200 sets of survival bags, consisting of 5 kg of rice, canned food, 1,200 fresh eggs, 1,200 bottles of CP drinking water and other food supplies.
The donated supplies were handed over by CP Foods volunteers led by the company’s vice presidents, Banjong Somsanguan and DVM Kunnawutt Krualoy.
“Khon Kaen was severely flooded,” the Khon Kaen governor said. “In some areas, the flood level was 1-2 metres high, seriously affecting the wellbeing of locals. Some of the villagers' farmland was damaged. Although the situation is improving, there are still some vulnerable areas that need helping hands and access to food and drinking water and other essential supplies. CP Foods’ volunteers came to support those impacted with survival bags and fresh food and drinking water. I would like to thank the company for being by our side in this crisis.”
CP Foods vice president, Banjong Somsanguan, said, “CP Foods, as part of the community, is responsible for helping communities nearby our operations. Therefore, CP Foods initiated the ‘CPF Food From The Heart Against Floods’ project and constantly rallies its volunteers to help people in various provinces, including Phitsanulok, Phetchabun, Nakhon Sawan, Ang Thong, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Saraburi, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum and Khon Kaen.”
“This entails supplying flood victims with fresh food, pork, chicken, eggs, rice, dry foods, CP drinking water and survival bags because we’re really here to help.”
