Thailand submerged in water

Thailand submerged in water

We continue to receive information and photos on the dramatic situation in Thailand were floods have continued for a week.

Because of the flooding the number of victims has risen to 500 deaths, as the officials of Yingluck Shinawatra report, while the water is already encroaching on the immediate northern frontier of Bangkok and directly threatens the center of the capital where there are 12 million inhabitants. According to official statistics there have been a number of 506 victims, many of whom were drowned or electrocuted by electrical currents in 25 provinces, in a disaster that has involved 3.1 million people. The water is still present in the southern neighborhoods of Lad Phrao and Chatuchak, about ten km from the financial and commercial heart of Bangkok. The western outskirts remain stricken by wide flooding, and it is the same with the southern suburbs, while the water has begun to recede from the central province that has been under water since the end of September.

During the first days of the flooding out Sister in Sampran have helped and accepted those who were in need, receiving and distributing staples and basic support needs. Now their house has also been invaded by the waters. Here hospitality had been given to some blind girls who frequent a professional formation course for masseuse, and there is also a group home. The girls have been sent to Banpong, to another community. The water continues to rise. All the FMA along with their collaborators are working to drain it from the lower levels of their houses. The situation, however, is still an emergency. Even other communities in other regions have been invaded by water. Our Sisters are worried especially about the community of Ban Than Phraphon where the level of flood waters has risen notably.
