AWR Lloyd Foundation
The AWR Lloyd Foundation is dedicated to supporting underprivileged and disadvantaged children in the Asia-Pacific region. The Foundation has two main areas of focus:
- Helping kids living in poverty or in danger – and children in need of special protection and care. The AWR Lloyd Foundation targets charitable projects in Asia-Pacific for street kids, orphans, children in war-zones and refugee camps – and children with terminal or incapacitating illness.
- Educational projects which enable underprivileged kids in Asia to go to school – and to stay at school. The Foundation is particularly keen to support education projects with a positive multiplier dynamic whereby when these kids are older they can enter into constructive careers which bring value and stimulus back to their home countries and communities – via business enterprise, social projects, public service or other work.
Some examples of charities supported by the AWR Lloyd Foundation in recent years:
The Wat Kalong school in SamutPrakarn. In November 2022, AWR Lloyd team travelled to the Wat Kalong school to donate stationary, computer screens, books, snacks and toys to the 11 fantastic teachers and 117 wonderful students between the ages of 4 and 12. A safe and inspiring educational environment is absolutely critical to a child’s wellbeing and development.[Video clip]
On the streets of Jakarta, AWR Lloyd provides Covid-19 impact relief. The Covid-19 crisis has wreaked economic havoc across the globe. The most vulnerable have been hit the hardest: the poor, the young and the sick. On the streets of Jakarta, the homeless and underprivileged are struggling to get enough to eat. Since September, the AWR Lloyd Foundation has been providing support to a local charity managed by friends, providing food directly to those most in need. The current program will last until the end of December.[Video clip]

Realizing the importance of families and society in jointly solving the problems of youths sustainably, AWR Lloyd donated funds, consumable goods, a washing machine and a water dispenser for the cause in August 2019.
The Human Development Foundation’s Mercy Centre in Bangkok. Established in 1973 the HDF builds and operates kindergartens, protects street childrens’ rights, provides home care for mothers and children living with HIV/AIDS and responds to daily emergencies in the slums of Bangkok.
