続報(タイでの洪水被害)

 違う話題を書こうと思いましたが、タイ人の友達の活動が活発なので、タイで、またKelloggで何が起こっているかをシェアしようと思い、こちらの内容にしました。僕は授業のためイベントには行けませんが、できるだけ、と思い、少しばかりの寄付をさせていただきます。

 異国で起こっていることを、顔の見えないBlogでMBA学生が書いている、ということであまり実感を持たれない方も多いかもしれません。でも、僕にとって、本当に大事な友達たちが汗を流し、懸命に自国を想ってやっていることなので、シェアさせてもらいました。どんな形でもよいので、皆さんがタイの復興にお力を貸していただければこの上なく嬉しいです。

[以下、タイ人の友人からのメッセージの一部]

Kellogg friends,

As some of you have heard, Thailand is now suffering from the worst flood in 50 years. Since July, the flood has killed more than 300 people and has caused billions of dollars worth of damage to crops and property.

Example of such devastation is from the flood that entered Ayudhya Hospital, forcing an evacuation of more than 200 patients. And the rescue teams are facing difficulties to access the area since water level can be up to 2 meters or 6-7 feet in some area.

Even with a major effort to protect Bangkok, flash flood hit the capital city a few days ago, and water level rose 1 meter or 3 feet overnight, affecting millions of lives.

We, Thai students at Kellogg, want to help those who suffer with our best effort. We would also like to extend the circle to increase our impact, and this is where you can play a big part. We would like to cordially invite you to join our hands and help victims through voluntary contribution. However, we personally feel it’s not appropriate to just plainly ask for your money donation.

With that, we are hosting an informal Thai dinner among our friends to raise the fund, which we will donate to OpenCare, a private organization, which is actively taking part in flood relief. The event would not require any entrance fee and all the proceeds would be donated without deducting the cost of the event..........
