WITH the worst flood in decades causing devastation in Thailand, the Thai embassy in Canberra is collecting donations to aid victims of disaster-struck regions. Embassy staffer Venus Asawapoom advises that donations can be transferred into the Commonwealth Bank account called Royal Thai Embassy - Emergency Relief (BSB 062900; account number 10733708). Cash will also be accepted through the embassy and the consulates in other Australian cities. Thailand is also in urgent need of diesel water pumps with a minimum 41cm diameter and water-inflated property protectors (WIPPs), which can be used to prevent damage to properties. The embassy would appreciate contact from distributors and an estimated time for shipping to Bangkok.
