Foodpanda & Roadrunner Aid Earthquake Victims

After the 6.3 magnitude quake that recently hit Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai provinces, witnessing first-hand the destruction to local families’ homes with tremors smashing windows, cracking walls, falling ceilings, splitting roads and damage to Buddhist temples, local Foodpanda/Roadrunner City Manager Napaporn Corradini decided it was time for some philanthropic action.

“Earlier this week the earthquake and the associated aftershocks hit a number of provinces in the North including Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Phayao and Lampang,” said Napaporn. “Unfortunately the people of Chiang Rai were the most affected where schools, villages and temples have been severely damaged. More than 500 rural residents in Chiang Rai province alone spent a sleepless night outside their homes without water, electricity and food. For this reason we decided to help and support those who have suffered. My team and I purchased dozens of drinking water packs, many big packs of instant noodles, packs of canned fish and two big packs of soy milk, we then travelled with these goods to the Highway Police Rescue Center in Chiang Mai and gave our little help for the affected residents.”
Foodpanda Thailand MD Alexander Felde says, “We wish that our small kindness could be useful and encourage them passing through this difficult period.”
