The community support program focuses on providing communities with the essentials needed to survive. Fresh water is a basic necessity. Without it, the mortality of the children in the outlying villages diminishes dramatically. We understand that this most basic need is crucial to the vision we strive for in creating a better future for each Cambodian child.
Part of our work involves scouting for areas within the outlying villages that are in the greatest need of fresh water. After quality control testing, we use local equipment to dig and install a number of wells each year. For the cost of around $350 a fresh water well can be installed so villagers receive a source of fresh and clean water. We also provide them with seeds and information about growing their own crops, either for food or to sell at the market for income.
