Local Matters


SOS Local Matters started in February 2021, as a way for us to support other causes in the Samui community. 

At each of the monthly ladies lunches there will be jars promoting 2-3 community groups for the “Sisters” to support.  Everyone who attends the lunch will receive one “button” to drop in their jar of choice.  The “buttons” represent a token of choice.

At the end of the lunch the buttons will be counted, and 5000 THB will be split between the 2-3 groups.

  • When there’s 2 causes: 3000 THB to 1st and 2000 THB to 2nd (updated: April 2021)
  • When there’s 3 causes:  3000 THB to 1st, and 1000 THB to each 2nd and 3rd. 

Send us your suggestions...

Please put forward your ideas of local groups and/or Thai & Burmese families on Samui who are facing extreme hardship (eg. medical conditions, etc) who could benefit from our monthly LOCAL MATTERS donations.  

This small token of support will make a a big difference to many lives and fur-friends on the island.  

Since February 2021, the Local Matters program has supported Samui Snake & Wildlife Rescue,  female hygiene and personal care products for women in the local community,  a young Burmese boy with cancer of the eye, Pariah Dog Sanctuary, contributed towards a new bike for Uncle Lung, and purchased adult diapers for the people we see during our #FeedSamui handouts. In May 2021 we will help Uncle Chart’s family (with 10 people living under one roof), and also give some much needed help to the Sawan Maa Happy Horse Sanctuary.
