NAKHON SI THAMMARAT, 4th March 2017 (NNT) – A group of businessmen from Malaysia has donated a sum of money to the victims of the devastating floods that swept through southern Thailand in January.

Nakhon Si Thammarat Governor Sakon Chantharak this week greeted a group of businesspersons from Malaysia’s Kelantan state, who presented him with 300,000 baht to be spent on renovating and fixing houses that were damaged by the floods.

Accompanying the governor, the group visited affected residents in the capital district and inspected progress in the construction of a home in Tha Ruea municipal sub-district.

In the meantime, five houses are being built in Ron Phibun and Thung Song districts. According to the latest report, the construction is around 60-80% complete. Once finished, the new homes will be given to five families who were left homeless in the aftermath of the January floods.
