Typhoon Haiyan tore through six central islands of the Philippines on November 8, 2013. The storm left thousands dead, millions displaced and a handful of areas completely destroyed. As victims grieve for their loss, they also face the daily ordeal of not having the most basic necessities, such as food and clean drinking water. International support is crucial in mobilising and deploying relief efforts to those in need without delay. As a community, we cannot stand idle or assume others will take the lead.
It is in this spirit that Bangkok’s best chefs and restaurants have come to volunteer their time and expertise to raise funds through a charity dinner to be hosted at Hansar Bangkok Hotel on December 4 at 7pm. Participating restaurants, suppliers and hotel will sponsor the entire event with 100 percent of the revenue collected from ticket sales going toward the installation of water-filtration systems in Leyte. Funds raised will be channelled through the Junior Chamber International-Cebu Chapter in partnership with Waves for Water and the Philippines Embassy here in Bangkok. Both organisations are already working to provide clean and sanitary water to the affected areas.
Chefs involved in the event are from Bo.lan, Appia, Soul Food Mahanakorn, Opposite Mess Hall, Little Beast, Quince, Eat Me, Eve, Water Library, Rocket Coffeebar, Smith and Nahm.
