Support for the next generation

Providing economic and moral support for children through exchanges

To support children and adults in communities affected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, MST launched the Mazda Caravan Sharing Happiness project and conducted the Mazda Caravan Punsuk 2020 program in four provinces across Thailand. Using Mazda cars for transportation, employees distributed stationery, sports equipment, and scholarships in each local area.
In cooperation with Mazda dealers nationwide, MST set up "Punsuk Pantries" in front of showrooms to share daily necessities such as rice, instant food, facemasks, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, medicine, etc. MST communicated with customers through social media and invited local people to join the activity by placing necessities in the pantries where people in need could access them. This support was made possible thanks to the cooperation of many people.
