230 families in Tip's village don't have safe water

US $1680 raised.


Sreng Meanchey, Sala Krouv, Pailin Province

Sreng Meanchey, 2 Pump Wells
This project was fully funded on launch due to the amazing generosity and support of Think 180!

Thourn Tip is 32 and lives with her husband and children in Sreng Meanchey village. They have permission to use a private water reservoir that was installed by a Cassava farmer but the water is dirty and contains chemical run off from the plantation. The village use it because rains are unreliable and they have no choice. Water can be trucked in to the village but the roads are bad and sometimes impassable so it is very expensive. Enough water for two days for Tip's family would cost half of her income for the same period.

Children in the village regularly get sick with diarrhea due to using unclean water and malaria from the tiger mosquitos which are common in the area. The entire village was full of joy to hear that we were investigating the possibility of a well project for their village. When the dry season comes they are suffering so much being unable to collect rainwater for drinking.
