This virus was spreading all over the world, and then it came to Thailand. SONGKANONG community is the urban community located at Bangkrajao in Samutprakarn province. There are 7,494 people and 1,725 households. In Samutprakarn province found the people who infected from Covid-19 up to 75 cases and death for 5 cases. Therefore, this province has to use defensive measures more than other provinces, which lead the people who work around the community to close or stop their business. So, many people and employees in the community are lack of profit to earn a living and to support their families. For example, employees who have to stop running their business because of the Covid-19 pandemic and live in the small rental room, Burmese who cross the border to work and then has to stop because of the virus, elders who live alone and, and many patients who live in this community.
