    Has Thailand not donated any money to the typhoon relief effort? If not, shame on Thailand and all Thais. There are thousands of Filipinos in Thailand teaching Thai children English, Maths, Science, etc. which is helping the country to develop; many Thais are generally too lazy and too xenophobic to bother learning English. They are also very prejudice against Filipinos and all foreigners in their country. After donating only a measly $10,000 USD in the aftermath of Typhoon Pablo, it does not surprise me that these sticky SOBs have not donated anything, as of yet, to help in the recovery efforts of Typhoon Yolanda. SHAME ON THAILAND

      Do the Philippines have money after the Hurricane?( rhetorical question really but i had to put it there since you made it seem like you really did your research) yes but where? since your so smart in doing your research about Thailand. How about you look into the corrupt government over there that has all the money, Philippines has received over $248 million already and with the death toll of 5,260. How about Thailand tsunami in 2004 that killed a total of 5,395 in that country alone? Guess what Thailand only received $5 Million cause they turned down help cause “Thailand is lazy” right like you? Said, haha think again you idiot do your research before you open your mouth and start disrespecting other countries. Prejudice against all foreigners WHAT!!!! haha How old are you little boy? And where are you coming up with all these accusations? Oh one more thing smart ass . Did the Philippines assist with the 2004 Tsunami? Nope
