UN Women is working with two NGOs, the Chumchon Thai Foundation and the Friends of Women Foundation and government partners to promote gender-sensitive community-based flood response and recovery in Thailand. The project is supporting On and her group of women community leaders in the coordination of the evacuation centre.

 

Looking after the needs of the many different populations, from children to the elderly, from pregnant women to the infants, they participated in the management of the centre, in maintaining harmony and peace at a critical time. Today they are sharing information on entitlements and laws, on how to access government benefits, how to cope better during crisis and how to prepare better the future.
