Oil donation to the Klong Toey Slums
For many years now SILC Welfare ladies Kay and Marianne have visited the Klong Toey Slums every two weeks to distribute oil, rice, tinned fish and a few other basics to those really in need. This project was in conjunction with Sister Joan who knew exactly who was in most need of the supplies - the elderly above 60 years and disabled in the Rongmoo area.
A few years ago a restriction was placed on the amount of bottles of oil you could purchase at the supermarkets and this is where SILC really came to help with ladies buying one or two bottles along with their shopping and passing them onto Sister Joan. After the restriction was lifted SILC agreed to continue to supply the oil towards the project, which greatly helped out the charity.
