CHIANG RAI – People in 16 sub-districts in Chiang Rai Province who suffered through the recent earthquake are setting up a disaster administration network in order to solve the problems in a sustainable way in the future.

Authorities and the general public have held brainstorming sessions in cooperation with Kasetsart University to exchange ideas about natural disaster administration such as housing restoration, earthquake coping, disaster prevention and preparation courses and maintaining local funds to help future sufferers.

Meanwhile, The President of the 3rd Region Army Wives Association has led a group of its members to provide morale support to military officials who have been busy rebuilding areas in Chiang Rai damaged by the quake nearly two months ago.

The Army wives Association members, led by Ms. Phongphan Chan-Ocha, yesterday visited Maharat Military Camp in Muang District, Chiangrai, where they handed out necessities to soldiers helping out victims of the May quake in the area.

The military and the Office of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department have recently set up a quake relief center at a local school in Maelao District.

Officials have also been helping the locals removing remnants of damaged buildings, moving residents’ belongings, and improving the environment in 12 areas around communities and temples. They have also provided assistance in moving patients from damaged hospitals to temporary quarters, organizing mobile medical services, helping victims suffering from post-quake mental health trauma, and handing out daily essential items.
