LPN Receives Support from 'Thailand's Favourite Restaurants by Koktail' During Chef's Charity Dinners at Siam Paragon

We at the Labour Protection Network (LPN) are thrilled to share the heartwarming success of the recent charity dinner event, graciously hosted by 'Thailand's Favourite Restaurants by Koktail' at Parc Paragon. Spanning from October 27th to 29th, this gathering of culinary masters and compassionate guests culminated in a significant donation towards our ongoing battle against maritime slavery.

The event was a showcase of gastronomic excellence, featuring a diverse lineup of esteemed chefs and renowned restaurants from Thailand and beyond. Each chef lent their culinary artistry, creating an exquisite 10-course dining experience. The essence of the event was beautifully aligned with our mission at LPN: to advocate for and protect the rights of Thailand's migrant workers.

A highlight of the event was the auction, where guests enthusiastically bid on exclusive dining experiences and luxury items, including vintage ports and gourmet hampers. This auction alone raised an impressive 350,000 Baht, a testament to the generosity and spirit of all involved. The funds were presented to our co-founder, Sompong Srakaew, in a ceremony at the Siam Paragon, with esteemed representatives from Siam Paragon, UOB, Jagota, and other sponsoring partners in attendance.

During the event, Nigel Oakins, publisher of Thailand's Favourite Restaurants by Koktail, emphasized the culinary industry's role in promoting fair and humane treatment for all, starting with those brave young individuals working at sea. Lawrence Cordes from Jagota highlighted the importance of enjoying fine cuisine while supporting charitable causes, especially those addressing the pressing issue of sea slavery in Thailand. Meanwhile, Supasima Kun-amornpong of UOB reiterated their commitment to enhancing life quality across ASEAN and supporting events that champion fair labor practices.

Our own Sompong Srakaew took the opportunity to shed light on LPN's current projects, particularly those focused on education for migrant children and adults, and the expansion of the migrant labor network. He emphasized the urgent need for continued vigilance and action to prevent labor abuses in the seafood sector.

This event was more than a fundraiser; it was a powerful statement about the importance of community involvement in addressing serious global issues like maritime slavery. The support we received is not just monetary; it symbolizes hope and strengthens our resolve to continue our vital work.

We extend our deepest gratitude to 'Thailand's Favourite Restaurants by Koktail', the participating chefs, and all who attended and contributed to this meaningful event. Your support is invaluable in our journey towards a world free of exploitation and injustice.
