All of the funds raised through Cebo Ride go directly to support the children of Sarnelli House, located in the northern rural villages outside of Nong Khai, Thailand.
Sarnelli House is an orphanage for abandoned children and children with HIV/AIDS. The orphanage currently accommodates 165 children. We work in the spirit of love where the children can find a purpose in living and be nurtured as they grow to adults. It is located in the shaded rural village of Don Wai. The mission of Sarnelli House is to provide a safe, healthy, loving, and happy environment for these children for however long or short their lives may be.
Sarnelli House was built with money that was graciously donated by the Redemptorist's Priests Foundation of Thailand, and was officially opened in October of 2000 by Fr. Mike Shea who has been the organization's leader, spirit and strength.
Most days at Sarnelli House are happy, filled with children's games, laughter, singing, dancing, good meals, prayer, and love. The children are cared for by extremely loving housemothers at this peaceful and quiet bamboo surrounded facility. And at any time you're guaranteed to see a little smiling child peddling around on a small bike.
