Bangkok Community Help is a community initiative founded by Greg Lange (Owner of Sunrise Tacos & Margarita Storm) and Friso Poldervaart (Serial Entrepreneur and owner of Dinner in the Sky Thailand) during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic that struck at the start of 2020. They were approached by a few members of the Klong Toei community asking to use the kitchen of his restaurant to prepare hot meals for the hunger-stricken people living in the slum areas.
Both long time Thailand residents and Entrepreneurs soon got heavily involved in the Klong Toey lower-income Communities (called Slum communities as well).
As they and their team started to visit the slums they became aware of many other issues that the community were facing which included dirty garbage sites infested by rats, dilapidated houses, lack of food, basic sanitation facilities among many others. The deeply committed volunteers began to work on various re-painting, cleaning, renovation, and construction projects for the betterment of the community. Upon seeing and getting inspired by this group’s work, many local and expat volunteers started to join hands with them and that’s when Bangkok Community Help was formed. Since then the Foundation grew to a 500 volunteer strong team of like-minded individuals from all over the world, sharing the love for Thailand, and sharing the feeling of wanting to help one another when they can.
The Bangkok Community Help Foundation has reached far beyond only Klong Toey. Wherever help is needed, the Foundation offers help regardless of their location, social status or heritage.
