At TLSDF, we are revising some of our planned activities from different projects to address the needs of the most deprived and marginalized, non-Thai citizens who live and learn in Thailand. The revised activities not only to help them to protect themselves from COVID-19, but also for some of them, we aim to help them to survive from jobs lost due lockdown and shelter in place situation. Some reponse efforts:
TLSDF and its community-driven child protection networks are ready to distribute these supplies and learning kits to all under budgeting households under our program impact areas in Upper Northern Thailand.
