         Moreover, EGAT will distribute the “Happiness Cabinets” to areas around EGAT dams and power plants nationwide to relieve the difficulties of Thai’s during the COVID-19 situation. Initially, EGAT will be responsible for adding consumer goods to the Cabinets, which will be partly from the generosity of EGAT officials who have donated to the “Happiness Boxes.” EGAT has placed “Happiness Boxes” around buildings in EGAT Headquarters to gather goods before adding them to the Cabinets in the communities. The public can also share goods to help those in need. As for aiding the people during the crisis, up until now, EGAT has given out disaster relief packages, set up meal kitchens to give out omelet with rice and drinking water, promoted careers, and created income for those affected by the COVID-19 crisis continuously.
