Living Waters Phuket Foundation – Building Brighter Futures
Life Bag packing and distribution continued in the past week into the local community as well as distributing larger-sized Life Boxes which were donated by AustCham Thailand.
During the last week, the Foundation closed off and completed their 3rd grant; the installation of the solar panels for The Good Shepherd School.
