On 5th November 2016, Phuket Thailand – Non Profit Organization PLAJA held the Memorial service for Indian Ocean Tsunami victims and held the charity dinner party as well for the affected areas caused by the earthquake / tsunami in various parts of the world.
In spite of the fact that PLAJA was holding the memorial service every 26th December that the date was the Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami ( Sumatra Earthquake) occurred in 2004.
We have changed the date to 5th November that is because the day is enacted as the World Tsunami day under the United Nations.
We believe that it able to contribute raising awareness of the importance of disaster prevention there is not only phuket but also various areas where earthquake- devastated district in the world.
