Water Tank for Cambodian Village

The Story

This summer, 23 students from Scarsdale High School are going to Cambodia through a program supported by the East West Center and Schools Helping Schools. In Cambodia, a country located in Southeast Asia, a villager's main source of drinking water comes from rain fall. This creates unsafe environment parasites, and can also be the source of mosquito reproduction. Contaminated water also comes from improper waste disposal. This trash leaks some toxins into the ground, which then gets into the water, through surface or ground water. We are trying to raise 6,000 dollars in order to purchase a water tank for a rural community near Takeo, Cambodia. Even if we don't reach this amount, every dollar counts. Thank you so much if you choose to contribute!
