In 2011, Thailand faced debilitating floods that affected everyone particularly those living in 13 provinces in the lower northern region and the central region.

MFLF partnered with the government and private sectors to rehabilitate flood victims by providing them with dry seasonings, vegetable seedlings that could be picked within a few days, and seeds for additional crops, so they could recover and earn an income to sustain themselves. This was a step forward from providing them with the usual necessities.

Flood victims were able to reduce their household expenses by

341 baht per household

and increase their income by

3,107 baht per household

by selling their produce within five months.
