Thank you from Fr. Malachy

Fr.

Floods in Thailand

As the heaviest floods have hit Thailand, reportedly in the last fifty years, the Thai Red Cross has fully deployed all its resources to provide relief to the affected.  The floods began in the upper north towards the end of June resulting from a number of typhoons and monsoons.  It still continues to rain both in Bangkok and the central plains adding to the huge amount of flood water.  Many people have lost their homes and their livelihood and the floods are predicted to continue for a month.  Could you please help the people of Thailand?  All donations will be given to the Thai Red Cross Society.  Name of Bank:  Siam Commercial Bank Public Co., Ltd.  Name of Account:  Thai Red Cross—helps flood victims in Thailand, Account Number: 045-3-04190-6, Swift Code: SI CO THBK.  Thank you.
