 Water is the Key to Life…
For the newly adopted commune of Run Taek, comprising 7 villages in the District Bantey Srei, Province of Siem Reap, NKFC has launched the “2004 Well Appeal”.

To provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene for communities to sustain a better quality a life is an essential step in the eradication of poverty. The population currently walks for miles to collect water from polluted sources, water which often carries disease and without education these vulnerable communities are trapped in the stranglehold of disease and poverty.

FACT: Only 35% of the population in Cambodia has access to clean water.

 

The population of these 7 new villages is 1,154 families (6,645 persons). A communal ring well is distributed to each five to seven families depending on the distance between the houses. Before digging the well with the population, we actively involve them in the planning, constructing, managing and maintaining the project. It is essential to gain the commitment by the local community to participate fully in the programme at all stages. We train and educate them with the danger of water-borne and related diseases, the importance of clean water, of drinking boiling water, of washing hands, to remove any stagnant water and keep the animals away from the well with a fence.

Please be a vital part of our work and make a gift today. To make a donation to the NKFC Well Appeal please print and complete the form

 

Each well is numbered and recorded and has a water point committee responsible for overseeing the continual maintenance of the well and following up our education programme where we integrate the water, sanitation and hygiene education to give a maximum health benefit. They themselves contribute by providing the fence and thatching for the roof and we supply the concrete rings, the cement surround and the metal cover. The water is tested once a year by a reputed firm paid by the Foundation and our Hygiene Officer is continuously consolidating the education.

FACT: Due to the lack of clean water and extreme poverty child mortality is 124 of 1,000 births and mother’s mortality is 473 of 100,000 births – the highest in South East Asia.

 

PLEASE HELP
We need 230 wells costing £100 each in order to bring water to 1,154 families.

Your gift could help save lives.
