Clean. Water. Cambodia.

Organized by: Mark Saavedra

THE STORY:

Having access to clean and safe drinking water straight from the tap is a part of everyday life for many of us -- but not for everyone. Over 750 million people in the world - about one and nine people - have no access to clean water sources. Each day, an average of 5,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diseases. In Cambodia alone, over 50% of the rural population does not have access to safe drinking water, and 20% of the deaths of children under 5 are due to water-borne diseases.

Working in partnership with locally-based Sao Sary Foundation, we will be working with other volunteers to support the Water for Life Project by constructing and installing bio-sand water filters in village households in Kampong Speu, located 50km from Phnom Penh. This initiative provides villagers with convenient access to clean drinking water and addresses gaps in rural communities' water ecosystems to reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases and improve hygiene and sanitation conditions.

Please help me raise money to volunteer for the Water for Life Project in Cambodia. We will be traveling to Kampong Speu for a week in July. The material cost of each water filter is approximately $50. Any amount that you can contribute will go toward these expenditures.  Any funds raised over the amount used during this trip will go towards the costs of providing additional water filters or organizing a team to return and volunteer again in 2016. Even with a small contribution you can make a big difference in the villages of Cambodia by helping to provide...

Clean. Safe. Drinking. Water.
