Four out of the eight villages in the district Bang Muang have been destroyed completely during the tsunami on 26 December 2004. In total 1212 families (5538 people) lost their home. The Thai authorities built four camps to provide emergency shelters for the affected population.
In the days just after the disaster the Thai authorities as well as local and international relief organisations supplied food and relief goods for the affected population. Additionally emergency shelters and provisional water supply as well as psycho-social care has been provided for the affected population.
Further does Malteser support the mother-child day-care centre in Ban Muang, which cares for 200 children.
