Filipinos affected by floods in Bangkok get aid

MANILA -- The Philippine embassy in Thailand over the weekend brought relief goods to more than 70 Filipinos displaced by the flooding in the Southeast Asian country.

In a statement released Monday, the Philippine embassy reported that a team of Philippine officials provided individually packed relief goods to more than 70 Filipino employees of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) affected by the floods in Thailand.

"School officials evacuated the group from the AIT campus yesterday and brought them to a hotel in Suthisan for temporary accommodation," the embassy said.

"The embassy team also briefly met with the group to assess their needs and how the Philippine government can best be of assistance to them," it added.

Floods had displaced several people in Thailand in past weeks.

The embassy earlier advised Filipinos affected by floods to tie white flags outside their homes if they need to be evacuated.

It also said victims needing temporary shelter can stay at the embassy. (CVB/Sunnex)
