We are determined to end poverty and hunger, in all their forms and dimensions, and to ensure that all human beings can fulfill their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment.
Our assistance for people in need includes working through the Buddharaksa Foundation and with the Royal Thai Army to build and repair homes in underprivileged communities. We also give scholarships to lift families out of hardship, helping children and young people gain new skills at organizations such as Panyapiwat Institute of Management.
Through giving aid packs, setting up street kitchens, and stocking “pantries of sharing” we have strived so that nobody goes hungry in the neighborhoods hit hardest by the COVID-19 downturn. Our close links with local communities help us target acute need.
Good Health and Well-Being
Well-being for all is a key value in all we do. Through our research unit RISC by MQDC, we are tackling public health issues such as urban pollution with “Fahsai” air-purifying towers. We are helping develop robot assistants to aid healthcare teams. All our projects apply strict standards for health in materials and design. Safeguards include research to deter dengue mosquitoes. Roads have low speed limits are designed to keep pedestrians apart from cars. We maintain buildings and care for plants and animals without using hazardous chemicals. Design addresses PM2.5 pollution to protect from respiratory diseases. A Health & Brain Center at our flagship development will nurture the well-being of older adults.
Our efforts to broaden access to education include Whizdom Scholarships that give university students free accommodation. Our Whizdom Society seminars and workshops unlock personal potential and spark social contribution with their roster of inspiring expert speakers.
Participating in the UN Global Compact as part of the DTGO group, MQDC is committed to respecting gender equality in all its business and societal contribution activities. We also work with the Baan Dek Foundation to help the children of our construction workers, developing infrastructure and enhancing their education, health, and safety.
