Aswin Kwanmuang, Governor of Bangkok, said that the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has been concerned about Bangkok residents and would like to relieve the burden of people suffering from the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Therefore, the BMA has distributed relief supply kits to people who lived in 50 districts of Bangkok, especially the unaided communities, which included rental houses, and house with no registration number so that the BMA’s assistance can thoroughly cover those who are impacted by the situation.
The BMA packed each relief supply kit with consumer goods derived from various agencies, which consisted of rice, instant noodle, canned fish, vegetable oil, fish sauce, seasoning sauce, sugar, soap, detergent, drinking water and necessary items for everyday life. The BMA has distributed 100,149 relief supply kits in total to people from 18th April 2020 to 8th June 2020.
