Dear Donor and Supporter,
The EDF Foundation joins the Thai people and people of other nationalities in the fight against COVID-19.
We wish to express our sadness to the families of those who lost their love ones and express our jubilation to those who have recovered from the disease.
The COVID-19 pandemic has more or less affected every person of every country and territory in the aspect of economy, society and health.
Because of the pandemic, many businesses are temporarily closing down or scaling back on operations resulting in temporary unemployment or salary cutbacks to millions of their salaried or daily paid employees and workers.
The impact of the pandemic on the very-low-income families is very disturbing. Almost 100 percent of students who receive our scholarship grants are from the very-low income groups comprising mainly of daily-paid or seasonal workers.
These very-low income families have been struggling economically even under a more normal time but the pandemic has turned their economic struggle from bad to worse and the chances of their children for education have also turned bleak.
Thailand’s school year 2020 will start in a few months and yet we still have 4,700 students out of 10,360 who passed our screening process with no sponsors.
In this very trying moment, EDF Foundation understands that even our sponsors are affected as well.
The only thing we asked from you is please try to find in your heart the extra heartbeat of commitment and kindness to sponsor one or more of the remaining students for the coming school year.
EDF Foundation has opened its scholarship donation for this school year 2020 from today until the May 31, 2020. Simply make your online donation through our English website at .
Please feel free to contact our Fundraising Team at for inquiries or assistance.
Finally, we wish everyone the strength to go through this difficult time together.
Thank you very much.
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
