The United States has donated Bt3.5 million to help flood victims in the South.

“On behalf of the American people, I offer my sincere condolences and sympathy to the people of Thailand for the loss of life and damage caused by the flooding in southern Thailand,” US Ambassador Glyn Davies said Wednesday.

He handed the funds over to Save the Children (Thailand), which will use the money to bolster its relief efforts in the affected provinces.  

Unseasonably heavy rains over the past weeks have led to severe flooding in more than 12 provinces in the South, causing more than 20 deaths and affecting over a million people.
