WHAT WE DO – CAMBODIA
Clean Water is being distributed from our purification systems right now in 2 locations, Stung Mean Chey and the Ang Dong Community. Approximately 25,000 in these slum villages are receiving pure water to drink.
The ongoing monthly cost is $200 per Month to provide this to two entire communities.
LOOKING FOR PARTNERS TO CONTINUE PROVIDING WATER FOR 25,000 PEOPLE IN THIS POVERTY AREA.
We are looking for a teacher for children and adults in the community who cannot read or write. The illiteracy rate in Cambodia is 60%. Not being able to read prohibits people from getting a job and many other disadvantages.
The cost of the Teacher is only about $200 per month!
(Or part of it?)
A recent project was made possible by a friend who donated reading glasses. Glasses are very expensive here and it’s a “Luxury that many cannot afford”. Here are some of the thankful recipients.
We have a Bible School for the kids usually on Fridays. It’s an additional event that many of the Kids truly enjoy. The Kids receive a meal, a cold Drink, and are usually quite excited about getting together for School.
Cambodia’s Angdong village is approximately 5 miles from the Phnom Penh Airport on the outskirts of town. In June of 2006, most of the 9000 people who now live in Angdong Village were violently driven from their former homes in Sambok Chap near the Bassac River. Their homes were reduced to rubble by large equipment by order of the government and private investors.
Every year the Angdong village slum floods during the rainy season. The rainwater accumulates and in combination with human waste it creates a perfect breeding ground for the mosquito that carries the dengue virus. Every year hundreds of children die because of dengue fever.
Our CHI Partners in Hope sent support for a water filtration system to provide families in Angdong village with clean water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. The water filtration system is up and running, but there is still so much to do to help these families and their children!
