The rescue mission marked the coming together of several individuals and countries so as to rescue those trapped boys. While the Thai government paid for most of it, contribution from other countries happened too, like the 30 US air force personnel who went to help, would have been funded by their own governments as a gesture of good will. Many Thai businesses supported with transport and food. Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways offered free flights to some of the foreign divers coming in.
