On behalf of Skal International Phuket & South Thailand, President Claude Sauter mentioned: “Children are always the most vulnerable in these situation. For them the first hours after such a terrifying tragedy is critical and traumatizing, thousands of kids will spend the first few nights in the freezing cold, out on the streets, in open spaces, frightened and terrorized and we needed to act immediately”.
UNICEF has prepositioned supplies, including water purification tablets, hygiene kits, tarpaulins and nutrition supplies and is working with government and other partners to meet children’s immediate needs in the areas of water and sanitation, clothes, child protection, health and nutrition.
