‘ATFX Cares’ Donates During Thailand Wildfire Disaster

ATFX donated dry foods, energy drinks, protective masks, glasses, medicine, and other essential equipment used to fight and control the fires in the Chiang Mai region of northern Thailand

The Chiang Mai region in Northern Thailand has been ravaged by wildfires since 29 March 2020. Local authorities have been fighting the flames, but the disaster has been hard to contain. This has contributed to a significant increase in pollution in the upper North region with Chiang Mai having over 400 active hotspots alone. The air in Chiang Mai has very high ultra-fine dust levels which exceed the recommended levels in populated areas.

ATFX donated dry foods, energy drinks, protective masks, glasses, medicine, and other essential equipment used to fight and control the fire. ATFX employees and partners based in Chiang Mai volunteered to deliver essential materials to the Puping Forest Fire Control Station, which has approximately 60 firefighters and at least 150 volunteers from neighbouring areas.

ATFX (Thailand) General Manager, Arthiphant Thongchandr, commented that “ATFX is dedicated to giving back to communities in ways that have a positive impact on those that are affected. Today’s donation was our way of showing the people of Chiang Mai that they’re not alone in this disaster and that we’re here to support them during this difficult period. We’ll continue to explore different ways to help those affected by such devastating disasters.”

Socio-economic conditions imposed by the outbreak of coronavirus have made for uncertain times. In this challenging period, ATFX takes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) very seriously. An example is the recent support sent to two Thai hospitals by ATFX. The Vajira Hospital’s director thanked ATFX on behalf of the hospital’s management and staff stating that the masks sponsored by ATFX would go a long way in helping the hospital take excellent care of its patients. 

ATFX commits to doing more CSR in the future as part of its efforts to cushion some of the hardest-hit communities in which its clients live.
