Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, an estimated 7 million people have lost their job. Low-income workers are hit the hardest making it exceedingly difficult for them to access basic life necessities.
In neighborhoods and communities around Bangkok, including families and children, face hunger every day. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of people in Bangkok were already struggling to find their next meal on a daily basis, and that number is now rising at an exponential rate.
Friso Poldervaart, Johannes Bergstrom, Patrich Andersson, and Bunyapat Phochailerd, the entrepreneurs behind Dinner in the Sky Thailand luxury experience, have joined forces to start a charity enterprise they named “Dinner from the Sky” in reference to their previous venture.
The four then launched a fundraising campaign on Weeboon.com to be able to buy and donate food and essential supplies to slum communities in Bangkok. Backed by hundreds of donors, they raised over 480,000 baht in a just a matter of days.
Several days a week, the four are still doing donations alongside volunteers while providing updates and photos of the charity progress on their Facebook page.
