UNBRO water trucks came every day to supply water

Not sure what the scene is about, maybe the refugees were waiting to be transported to another site

Vietnamese refugees did not live at Khao-I-Dang camp, however, many Vietnamese were transported to Khao-I-Dang whenever they need medical attention that the clinic at the Vietnamese platform could not provide, such as surgeries, tooth extraction, or need to be observed.

Many of us may recognize Khao-I-Dang from these pictures.
