LifeNets Drills Borehole as 1st Project in Cambodia

January 18, 2016

Our first LifeNets project in Cambodia is completed! LifeNets Australia financed $1500, 3/4 of the cost of the borehole for the village of Srok which is three hours out of the capital Phnom Penh. Because the village is on a hillside, the 350 families living there did not have easy access to fresh water. Now 60 people will be directly served with closeby fresh water. Ryan Cooper from Terre Haute, Indiana is living in Cambodia and managed this project. The well was dedicated two days ago on January 16th. See story, photos and video.

New Jazzy J6 Power Wheelchair Donated

January 7, 2016

Yesterday we at LifeNets received a donation of a brand new Jazzy J6 power wheelchair shown on left valued at $2,000 from a woman whose husband just died in Boynton Beach, Florida.  Our volunteer in Deerfield, Florida, Chuck Smith, picked up the chair and it will be used for someone who needs a chair like this either in the southern Florida area or the Caribbean where Chuck and his wife Mary regularly travel.

We are thankful for the wheelchair project works and how it’s benefited so many.  Each year LifeNets matches about 100 wheelchairs from donors to qualified recipients.  This free service has been operated by LifeNets for the past 16 years.  See our wheelchair page at
