She said she helped local residents build a snow sculpture of the popular Japanese cartoon character Doraemon, complete with a face mask, and that later she was asked to carve out a Thai version of the message "don't give up".

The Facebook user said the sculpture took two days of hard work to complete, adding that she was impressed by people’s unity and teamwork. She said even people above the age of 60 gave them a helping hand.

The sculpture will stand tall outside city hall until February 7, when it will be torn down, she said.
