About 15 tonnes of Suphan Buri rice to help fishermen affected by the Covid-19 crisis arrived at the Phuket Network Management Centre on Sunday under a rice-for-fish exchange project.
Under the project, sea gypsies in Rawai district have already seen their catch processed into dried fish to be exchanged for the rice.
Rawai community chairman Ngem Tamrong Kaset received the rice.
The rice will be distributed in three areas – Phi Phi Island in Krabi province, Koh Lipe Island in Satun, and Rawai in Phuket.
