Happy Food is working to provide food to workers affected by the COVID-19 emergency, to ensure that people living anywhere on the island will be fed. We're volunteer-run and and every baht spent is recorded, ensuring 100% of your donations go to those most in need.

Our beautiful island of Koh Phangan is facing a humanitarian crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of many restaurants and hotels around the island. With that, thousands of workers from Myanmar and Laos are stuck with little to no income.
Official support for these workers is limited, as they are not Thai citizens. And, as they are unable to travel back to their homes, they are facing imminent hunger.
We estimate there are up to 3,000 people who have been severely affected and are in need of some form of urgent assistance.
The need is so high, and our resources so stretched, that we're currently focussing on providing only daily rice rations. With your support, we hope to be able to provide meals with adequate nutrition as soon as we can afford to.
We're collecting funds online through crowdfunding, as well as at donation points around the island.
We're buying supplies in bulk - tons at a time! By buying in such large quanities, we get a lower price per kilogram. That means every baht you donate goes as far as possible.
We have set up distribution points all around the island and are working closely with the affected communities to distribute the supplies with sensitivity and dignity.
With such an urgent and huge challenge ahead of us, we need all the help we can get. Will you help us make sure no-one starves on Koh Phangan?Find out How You Can Contribute
