Two months of heavy rains have caused the worst flooding in Thailand for 50 years, affecting 30 of the 77 provinces and threatening many more. Downpours are expected to continue with further flooding anticipated and many areas are on alert, including parts of Bangkok. Thousands of people have been forced from their homes and many more are expected to be evacuated.

In Pathum Thani province, north of Bangkok, Thammasat University is being used as a temporary shelter. It is currently housing 1600 evacuees but is expected to reach maximum capacity, 2000 people, as evacuations continue. Many of those arriving at the university have lost, or been forced to abandon, all their belongings and are in urgent need of basic essential items.
