Alongside his work as CEO and Investor, Shaun Stenning is also the Founder and General Manager of Living Waters Phuket Foundation (LWPF), which was responsible for the single largest food relief effort during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Shaun established the foundation late in the year 2021 in order to provide financial grants, enable essential relief aid to underprivileged communities, and generally provide aid and assistance to charities, government organizations, and foundations. 

What sets LWPF apart from other foundations is Shaun’s founding precedent that all money raised goes directly to the communities that the foundation is serving. He has spent the past few years really dedicating himself to the community of Phuket and providing his neighbors with the resources they need to be successful and offering food relief to those across the island in need. Additional efforts include sustainable community relief, renewable energy, focus on environmental issues, and education requirements.
