Lending a helping hand - sand bags for flood prevention in Bangkok

Trucks to transport the sand bags to Bangkok and surrounding areas

Some locals filling sand bags

The principal of the Christian school in Ratchaburi came with some of his staff

students from the Technical school in Ratchaburi helping out

Thousands of bags - so far there are around 200,000 to be filled. The Government is hoping for up to a million bags to be really effective in preventing the floods, but so far there is not enough of a budget.
