    Teenagers in Pattaya hand out a thousand free meals to the needy and homeless during

    A group of local teenagers, many of who are part of Pattaya area motorbike clubs, helped the needy in Soi Kor Pai yesterday (June 15th).


    A thousand sets of meals, dried food, eggs, and bottles of water were handed out to the needy in Pattaya in the afternoon.


    Many people in Pattaya are unemployed after many businesses have been closed due to Covid-19 restrictions and measures. The Covid -19 pandemic has also affected the sales at local markets and the community in Soi Korpai. Even many people who have jobs have been affected by the loss of revenue due to the lack of domestic and foreign tourism and that many former customers have lost their jobs.

    Pattaya City Law Enforcement officers assisted in handing out free meals to the needy with hygienic measurements such as temperature checks and hand sanitizer.

    The group of teenagers, who didnít want to be named individually, told The Pattaya News many people are suffering in Pattaya with no food to eat and that the homeless situation is getting worse the longer Covid-19 restrictions continue to keep closed the tourism and entertainment industry, which is the main economic driver of Pattaya.


    The group, many of who are part of local motorbike clubs, wanted to show that the youth and teens of Pattaya also have many good people who want to help their community and that not everyone who loved motorbikes and racing were bad people. They also wanted to stress that even though they were members of varied clubs in the area they all came together to support their home of Pattaya and those most in need.

    Good news story. Very impressive indeed.

    The only hope for mankind imo is if todays youth take the lead in may fields, including politics. People like myself, an established baby boomer have generally fucked things up royally.

    Hooray for the good deeds of todays youth.

    To be fair, GJ, in NZ and all western and many non-western countries the same is done irrespective of the government's quality - charity work for the less fortunate is innate to many.

    Actually, I think citizen action is just as important as governmental.

    What do you mean by 'actually'?

    Was there anybody who suggested you thought otherwise?
