If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you’d notice that the team at 5 Star Marine are working closely with the local community to help get support to those who need it.
Over the last few weeks, we have been donating rice, water, chicken, beef, and more to communities that have been significantly affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. To understand Phuket is a tourism town. When our government made the decision to lock our borders almost all of the people of Phuket were out of work.
This led to a lot of people running out of money and food. Seeing this need our team snapped into action and started organizing food and supplies for families that needed it. Through our work, over the last few weeks, we have donated over 4000 Kilograms of Rice, over 3000 bottles of water, more than 200 Kilograms of Chicken and so much beef we lost count.
All these donations have been financed by the team behind 5 Star Marine. We have not sought donations from our customers we have worked with our team and the team from Sutai Muay Thai to put these donations together directly.
We don’t write this to hope for praise, what we hope for is your support.
Support The Businesses That Support The Community With Your Custom!
When travel restrictions are lifted, and they will be lifted, we hope that those of you who do choose to travel to Phuket that you choose to support businesses like ours that helped out in the time of need.
Don’t get me wrong, we are not the only business helping, there are restaurants, dive shops, hotels, and more helping out. What we hope to see is that you choose to eat at those restaurants, dive with those dive shops, stay at those hotels and go on private boats with companies that are helping.
These are the companies that are working with heart during these hard times and we should reward those companies with our custom. Just like we plan to. When we can we will visit these restaurants, eat there and we will repay there kindness with the thing that counts to them, customers.
