Poh Teck Tung Foundation

The Poh Teck Tung Foundation (Thai: มูลนิธิป่อเต็กตึ๊ง, from pinyin: Huáqiáo Bàodé shàntáng) is a rescue foundation founded in Thailand famously known for rescuing road accident and managing unclaimed corpses. The foundation originated a hundred years ago in Thailand concerning China's belief bases from good deed as a principle of action.

Initially started from twelve Chinese merchants who came to Thailand in 1909 called Taihonkon. They were corpse managing parties to take care of the unclaimed corpses. These corpses were buried at Wat Don Cemetery, Thanon Charoen Krung road, which they acquired the property by soliciting the fund together and bought it. Succeeding in 1938 with the collaboration of Chinese businessmen and association of publishers, they reformed it by registering the party as an official foundation, with the fund of two thousand baht. It was registered as Huakeawpohtecksengtung (Huáqiáo Bàodé shàntáng), becoming the 11th foundation formed in Thailand.
