This is in response to Dr. John Smith (Ajarn postbox 14 Nov, 2013). Maybe during the time you were typing that message for Ajarn Postbox, you haven't researched or checked whether Thailand is doing its part to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Thai people are one of the most generous people in the world, and it is a fact and part of their culture. You can see it by how gift giving is always a part of any ceremony and any event. They believe this because it is part of Buddhist beliefs, for one to be generous.
The Thai government has already donated around 90 million baht on top of relief goods that were delivered by plane to the affected areas in the Philippines. On top of that, many Filipino teachers who hail from the affected areas (including me) were given donations (through collections by teachers and students) to help loved ones back in the Philippines. With the money they gave us, we were able to give our own families money for food, clothing, necessities or for repairing homes. With that, my family, friends and I are eternally grateful to Thailand. They did help even though we didn't ask for any.
So, I refute your call for Thailand to act on this disaster because they already have done so. You just haven't been doing your homework. Source/Reference: (http://www.gov.ph/faith/thailand/). Instead of wasting your time making such stupid assumptions. Why won't you do your part in helping the victims?
