Sihanoukville -- Sawasdee Foundation, a Dutch humanitarian organisation, has been one of the main supporters of the Salesian projects in Cambodia since the start in the 1990s. During this time of Pandemic, Sawasdee Foundation is not on the locked down. It is fully working to continue their support to projects that are at the side of children and youth in need. This week Don Bosco Cambodia received one of its traditional containers full of gifts for all the Don Bosco schools projects in Cambodia and other organisations such as the Takeo Eye Hospital of Caritas Cambodia.
Sawasdee Foundation also came to the help of the Don Bosco Kep online programs that guaranteed that more than 400 students could keep their normal path of studies during this difficult time of pandemic, loyal to their mission to start up, support and promote social and charitable projects, scientific research and education.
Mr. Hector Loontjens, the leader of Sawasdee Foundation, has been constant in their support to Salesian projects in Thailand and Cambodia since the 1980s.
Mrs. Ellen Loontjens is also a great benefactor of the Don Bosco Children Fund.
