Happy Food is a charitable initiative set up to provide food and basic necessities for people living on Koh Phangan due to the current COVID-19 situation. Thankfully, we currently do not know of people who are ill on the island, yet the economic impact of the virus on border lockdowns and tourism will be felt for many months as many have been left unemployed and struggling to support themselves.
This amazing project is being organized by Khun Sontaya Saeyo, a former monk from Chaloklum in collaboration with other Thai community leaders, funded by donation with transparency oversight by foreign residents with business experience. The oversight team is led by Khun Kittisak Norheim, a former captain in the UN peacekeeping forces.
Happy Food is working alongside other initiatives on the island to provide food, to ensure that people living anywhere on the island will be fed. All of the involved are volunteering and each baht spent is recorded, ensuring 100% of your donations go to those most in need.
If you are on the island also and have the time, please fill out our Volunteer form here, and the Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch with you or join the Happy Food Koh Phangan group, as well as liking and following the Facebook page.
If you want to donate, you can do so through the fundraising page.
You can also add a donation when ordering food through Make It or Mamma Mia.
