Living Waters Phuket Foundation – Building Brighter Futures


The packing and distribution of the crucial Life Bags continue each week, helping some of the most in-need communities with basic food supplies.

There has been a very promising response to our grant application process online; with numerous projects being applied for, in process of review (this week alone there are 7 initiatives being reviewed), or being approved and completed.

Living Waters Phuket Foundation continues to put strong importance on the development of relationships and has met again with community leaders to understand projects in need of urgent assistance.
