The Story
4 months ago

Sisters on Samui (SOS) is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 1997 by a group of women who were living on Koh Samui. We aim to support those in need on Samui through community outreach programs, fundraising activities and regular social events on the island.

Over the years Sisters on Samui have supported the Samui Hospital, Samui Rescue, Samui Prison and some of the dog rescue and elephant sanctuaries.  In March 2020 Sisters on Samui launched the #FeedSamui initiative which has provided much needed food packages, nappies, milk formula and feminine hygiene products to displaced workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

All donations will be used to support the local community through our Feed Samui and Community Gardens initiatives.  We thank you in advance for your support.




Update from April 14 2021

Many people on Koh Samui lost their jobs last year and they cannot afford to buy the basic necessities for their families, due to the international border closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

These families have to make compromises between paying for basic needs, like food and rent, and buying essentials like diapers, baby formula and sanitary items. 

Sisters on Samui has been providing food handouts to hundreds of Thai and Burmese families on the island since March 2020.  We also provide emergency supplies for baby milk formula, and collect and handout second-hand clothing, shoes and bedding.

The typical #FeedSamui handout includes: rice, canned fish, instant noodles and sometimes we add a dozen eggs, or small packs of UHT milk for the school kids.  Just recently we have been supplying personal care items including soap, sanitary items and dental care products

You can help tackle the needs of hundreds of families on Koh Samui, by donating to our #FeedSamui initiative.

The money you donate today will help hundreds of Samui families in need to put food on their plates in these difficult times.

We delivered food packages to some villages we have visited before, and also to a new camp. Many happy people took home food staples including rice, canned fish, instant noodles and fresh eggs.  Thank you to everyone who supports Sisters on Samui (SOS). We couldn't continue to support the local community without your help.

On the TWELFTH DAY of giving we know that eggs are a staple food needed by many families on Koh Samui. 12 trays of eggs costs 920 THB (12 x 30 = 360 eggs, which is probably enough for 3-4 families for a month)

On the TENTH DAY of giving many families need to purchase face masks and hand sanitiser as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. 11 packs of Sanitiser and Face Masks costs 1915 THB (11 x 500ml hand sanitiser, and 11 x fabric face masks).

On the EIGHTH DAY of giving many families looking for a quick bite to eat enjoy Mama instant noodles. Mama noodles were one of the first food items to disappear from the supermarket shelves in Thailand in March this year. They are inexpensive, easy to cook and have a long shelf life. 8 cartons of Mama noodles costs 1352 THB (each carton = 24 x 90g).

On the FIFTH DAY OF GIVING many families also like to buy UHT milk for their kids. This product doesn't need to be refrigerated and provides Calcium to the kids. Five cartons of UHT Plain Milk costs 825 THB (each carton is 12 x 180 ml).

On the THIRD DAY OF GIVING many families need rice, a food staple in Thailand. Three packs of Jasmine Rice costs 1,569 THB (3 x 15KG). On our last visit to the Burmese camps we gave out 625kg of rice to 250 people. It seems a lot, but it doesn't last long.

On the SECOND DAY OF GIVING many families are in need of diapers. Two packs of disposable nappies costs 799 THB (148 nappies might last 4-6 weeks). This is a costly expense to families with infants and toddlers. Many families live without electricity and washing machines, so it's not practical to have re-usable nappies.You can donate to our new online Weeboon campaign here. https://www.weeboon.com/en/campaign/feedsamui

Join us in our 12 DAYS OF GIVING campaign by donating any money you can to support the Sisters on Samui #FeedSamui campaign.  All funds raised help us to support families on Samui who have lost their jobs due to international border closures during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

On the FIRST DAY OF GIVING many families are in need of baby milk formula.  This is a costly product for families to buy.  It's 929 THB for a 1.65kg carton of milk formula (which might only last a few weeks). 

We will update our Facebook page each day with the "shopping list" that many Thai and Burmese families on Koh Samui are struggling to afford.

Our family has traveled to Koh Samui a few times in recent years. We love the people and we are very sad that COVID has affected them so badly. We cannot wait until we can get back again to support the people and enjoy the island and their company.

Lots of Love - Moylan Family
