A touching story from an I Am UNICEF volunteer
Hi, my name is Pawat. I’m a high-school student preparing for university entrance exams. I recently had the opportunity to volunteer to distribute food coupons and UNICEF COVID-19 activity booklets to families of the Klongtoey community near Bangkok. The event was organized by the Klongtoey D Jung Group and the I Am UNICEF Volunteer team, aiming to help struggling families during the tough time of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the day, we also took time to speak with people from the community, learning about their situation and struggles.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges and difficulties for various communities in Thailand. During this tough time, it has become very challenging for people of the Klongtoey community to find jobs, and earn enough income to provide for their families. I was inspired with their tenacity and resilience, and felt very rewarded to help out this community as much as I can.
It was a great opportunity for me to discuss about the challenges of COVID-19, both with the I Am UNICEF team and the local people of the Klongtoey community. And I was finally able to see the real impacts of COVID-19.
This experience has left a remarkable impression on me, and I’m very happy to be able to help out on the day. I am now committed to keep volunteering and to help out whenever I can!
For every child, a fair chance
