grumpy old men relax on a beach in Phuket

Phuket Grumpy Old Men's Society



Below is an overview of the 2011 flood relief efforts in Thailand by the Phuket Grumpy Old Men's Society (GOMS). A great effort on the part of some members who were actively involved in collection, sorting, transport and distribution of flood relief supplies to affected villagers in Nakon Sawan.
Hover over the photos to see an enlarged view. On some you can clearly see the stain on buildings showing how high the flood waters were.
