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 well was drilled in June 2019. Clean water is flowing–Children can play in the water and also a make soup with the clean water from the well. The children at Kambour Village and community are now enjoying abundant clean water!
The former water source was a shallow well and two ponds that were close to the Children’s Center. The people suffered from various diseases. Typhoid, diarrhea, parasites and worms were quite common. They used 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 was not clean.
