Govt failing to channel help to the most needyAmid a shortage of medical supplies, many, including celebrities, have either launched or joined fundraising campaigns to help provide medical professionals with equipment needed to battle the Covid-19 pandemic in a show of solidarity and empathy in this time of crisis. Even though millions of baht has been donated into these campaigns, those who need help the most have yet to receive a piece of the pie. Of course, donations are not the only solution, but they can provide partial relief for those who really need help. As long as public resources and private donations remain misallocated, small hospitals and the poor will continue to suffer. That is to say, those who want to do good should rather pay heed to direct calls for donations from small hospitals and affected people who desperately need help.
