A NEED FOR FRESH WATER

The Cambodian people endured Genocide during the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot era (1975-1979), resulting in 2 million Fetching waterdeaths or 25% of the population. Today, 65% of the population is under the age of 25 years. There is much needed to improve the country, especially in the realms of health. Families in rural area earn less than $2 per day and cannot afford to build water wells.

Drinking water is still scare at the rural areas in Cambodia. Most of the local people are dependent on the water from ponds, lakes and rivers for their daily use. This water is not clean, which can cause diarrhoea and other serious illnesses.

To help the people of Cambodia, we have setup the Wells for Cambodia project. This is a non-profit, non-political initiative setup by Norakbun Tin with the sole aim of helping the poorest people in Cambodia’s rural areas.

We need funds and support so that we can build clean water wells for poor families, to improve the health, life expectancy and living condition of our community.

Digging a new wellEach water well costs US$500. These are ‘best quality’ wells, which are a little more expensive than other wells, but include life span and a pump. Each well provides a family and their neighbours with accessible clean water. Without it, these people have to walk 4 or more kilometers in each direction each day to collect water for drinking and farming.

It takes two day to dig each well and pour the concrete, and the activity and employs three people. Each well has a signboard and this employs yet another person. When complete, the well is tested for Arsenic and E-Coli and the villager taught Showing off their new wellhow to take care of it.

If you would like to help, we’d love it if you would make a donation so we can build a well sponsored by you!

    Thank you, Bun, for all your help organising our new water well in Siem Reap. We are so glad we were able to help another family in need. Building of the well was accomplished quickly and efficiently, and we loved seeing the pictures of the finished product with a happy family now having ready access to clean water. Keep up the good work!

    It was a pleasure to meet Bun in our trip to Cambodia. He told us about his project and how the people need to have the wells to have fresh water. He was very persistent , passionate, and we could feel how he feel for his people and community. Coming back home we decided to donate some of our money but as well make a bake sale and spread the word about this project (we did print outs of the website). My boys, and 2 friends work out the sales and it was a huge success. We are so happy that we could make it. We participated with Bun, thinking about Cambodians and people who needs the basic things in life, as fresh/clean water, to have a good, decent life. First you dream, than you make your dream come true, always!
