Water is a fundamental human need affecting not just health but education and income for people living in poverty. When a child falls ill from dirty water, they are unable to go to school and when a woman spends hours each day just collecting water for her family's needs, she is kept away from an income generating job.
Water is abundant in Cambodia but it isn’t safe to drink. In fact, 1 in 5 deaths among Cambodian children under the age of 5 are caused by water-borne diseases. Children are especially vulnerable because their bodies are too weak to fight off diarrhoea, dysentery and other illnesses.
Water For Cambodia (a local NGO) helps to provide sustainable clean drinking water to rural Cambodian families with BioSand filters which kill 99% of bacteria from contaminated water. It is simple, low-cost solution that cleans water using a biological process. Each Biosand filter can provide clean drinking water for a family of 5-8 for 15 years. For more information on the Biosand filters, please visit their website – https://www.waterforcambodia.org/biosand-filters.h...
This coming June 2020, I’m organising our #2 volunteer trip to Siem Reap. Our #1 trip was in June 2018 as #SmilesSalamSg (shown in pictures). As our trip is 100% self-funded, I’m raising funds for the cost of Biosand filters, installation and on ground transportation. Total cost of each filter – USD90 (Inclusive of admin, processing fee for this page, installation and transportation). Any amount of contribution you’re comfortable with is appreciated as every dollar counts.
To save the admin/processing fee, please drop me a message to get more details or PayLah/PayNow to 87259450. 100% of your contributions would then proceed straight to this campaign and the amount raised offline will also be recorded!
Please follow my journey [https://www.instagram.com/smilessalamsg/] & [https://www.facebook.com/SmilesSalamSg/] to find out on the progress as it will be updated. My page allows you to follow the progress, share it with friends, voice encouragement or even join us and get involved yourself!
Thank you very much for reading this far and I appreciate your support in helping me raise funds for this great cause.
