ABOUT SISTERS ON SAMUI
Sisters on Samui (SOS) is a not-for-profit organisation bringing together the women who live on the island. We aim to support those in need on Samui through regular social events, fundraising activities and community outreach programs.
SOS was formed in 1997 by a group of women who were living on the island. The ladies arranged to meet for monthly lunches and raised funds for charity. One of the first big contributions to the Samui community included the donation of an incubator to the babies ward at Samui Hospital.
More than 20 years later the group continues to bring together like-minded women for social lunches every month, and has provided financial support to the Samui community including the Samui Hospital, the Samui Prison and Samui Rescue.

COVID-19 kills in different ways
We are fortunate on Koh Samui that the number of infected people has been very low (8 according to current statistics) and so far no deaths. So we are very fortunate.
However, what a number of us do not realise is the devastation this is causing. Thousands of Thais and Burmese, who live on Samui now have no means of support.
This is the reality right now here – these locals, are hotel workers, restaurant workers, chefs, cleaners, barmen, gardeners, taxi drivers – they have lost their jobs and as we all know in Thailand, most of them come here to work and send money home to their parents/children/family.
In March 2020, Sisters on Samui started handing out food packages containing rice and basic shopping items. The first day we saw so many people shy to say they were hungry and can’t feed themselves.
No Job, No money, No food!
This is where you can help.
We need donations to buy essentials, RICE, NOODLES, FISH SAUCE, EGGS, COOKING OIL and even such essential items as BABY FOOD, NAPPIES, SANITARY ITEMS.
If you can help in any way please make a donation.
