Kambour Village, Cambodia (in the Oddar Meanchey Province) is a very impoverished, rural village in a remote area of northwestern Cambodia. This project is a deep well that will provide clean water to drink for the children who come daily to a Children’s Center as well as to the entire community.  The Center was built to care for neglected children so they may learn about the Christianity, as well as life skills and hygiene, and receive an education to break the cycle of absent parenting. 

The current water source is a shallow well and two ponds that are close to the Children’s Center. The people suffer from various diseases. Typhoid, diarrhea, parasites and worms are quite common. They use well water, water from the small creek, and water from ponds to drink, cook with and for all other household needs but the water source is not clean.
