Meet the Muslim team who helped to feed the Thai cave rescue mission

  • After the successful rescue of the 12 boys and their coach last night from a cave in Northern Thailand, stories about the amazing volunteers that helped the mission spread quickly across the web.
  • Among the cave divers, Navy SEALs and entrepreneur Elon Musk with his mini submarine was a group of Muslim women who realised that the Muslims in the rescue team would need halal food.
  • Sophia Thaianant led the Muslim women rescue volunteers, who cooked about 200 halal meals a day during the operation and delivered them to the rescue site, according to a BBC video.
  • Thaianant said that her group got donations from Muslims across the country to fund the halal meals. Islam is the second largest religion of Thailand after Buddhism: about 4–5 per cent of the population are Muslims.
  • She added that Muslim and Buddhist volunteers in Chiang Rai, the closest city to the rescue site, worked together to see the mission succeed.
  • In the video, one of the volunteers said that on the days she made special meals such as curry or biryani, she made extra so that “everyone can eat, not just the Muslims.”
