Amidst the hardship of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen tonnes of people showing support and care from one to another. From sharing pantries in communities to people donating what they can, this is a time for us to be there for each other.

Adding to the good news is one Phuket-based man, who has been giving free gasoline for local motorcycle drivers in his community.

On 10th May 2020, Facebook page GodzillaGreen shared photos of people and their bikes waiting in a line for free gasoline supported by Mr. Willy, an Austrian man living in Patong, Phuket.

He offered to pay for gasoline for locals who ride bikes to get about their everyday lives (with the exception of big bikes, delivery bikes, and motorcycle taxis) from 4-5PM on 10th May 2020. People were seen in a long queue, waiting calmly until it came to their turn.

We’re so glad to see people coming forward to support others  – whether or not foreign or Thai. 

With Thailand’s COVID-19 situation gradually getting stable, we hope that everything will be back to normal soon.
