Sunela Foundation


The Sunela Foundation was founded by Sanela Diana Jenkins in 2022 with the goal of utilizing her resources and platform to help people in need rebuild their lives and create brighter futures. In partnership with GVNG.org, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, the Sunela Foundation raises awareness and funding to support important causes throughout the world. All funds are collected and distributed by GVNG.

The Sunela Foundation is proud to announce that its first project, in partnership with GVNG, will raise funds for the families of the 189 passengers and crew members who lost their lives when Lion Air Flight 610 crashed into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia. Sunela Founder Diana Jenkins has donated $100,000 to this project. All donations will be collected, safeguarded and distributed by our partners at GVNG to the widows, orphans and close family members of those who died on Flight 610.
