report Malteser

Cologne. As from today, 29 December, Malteser Germany will extend its emergency relief to the region north of Phuket and Khao Lak. "We have encountered around 2,000 families whose villages have been wholly swept away. Help had not yet arrived so we immediately began distributing food, blankets and drinking water", states a Malteser staff member. The region's hospital, too, is in dire need of medical and dressing material. Tomorrow, Marie-Theres Benner, Malteser coordinator in Thailand, will be arriving to coordinate relief efforts.
