The government has pledged financial aid to help the victims of deadly floods that have swept across many parts of the country in recent days.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has ordered cabinet ministers to visit flood-affected communities and provide assistance to victims, PM's Office deputy spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat said after a cabinet meeting yesterday.
