CityNews – 27th March 2020, The COVID Foreign Community Support Group Chiang Mai was formed to respond to any needs the more vulnerable foreign residents of our city may require as the crisis continues.
The group is to be found on Facebook where all pertinent information regarding the situation will be posted daily. An operations arm of the group has also been formed, the Chiang Mai Search and Rescue Group, also on Facebook, which is coordinating all efforts amongst the dozen or so local community groups, with a list to be found here.
We urge all foreign residents of Chiang Mai to find and join their local group, especially those with health issues or other vulnerabilities. Volunteers are also needed in a great range of areas from food and supplies delivery to translation work and administration. Please contact the Chiang Mai Search and Rescue Group if you are able to volunteer your time, expertise or resources towards our common cause.
