Safe water for 50 people

In Prei Preal Khor village, Cambodia, a new community enterprise is making clean water affordable for everybody. In rural areas of Cambodia, almost a third of people are forced to get their drinking water from dirty wells or pools. It means that sickness, diarrhoea and typhoid are rife. But thanks to an innovative Oxfam scheme, communities such as Prei Preal Khor are setting up their own solar-powered water stations that filter water from nearby wells and make it clean and safe to drink. This is reducing levels of sickness, especially amongst children. And Chum’s children are amongst those who benefit, and they really enjoy having a supply of clean water on tap. “'When they are thirsty they shout out and demand the clean water for drinking. They like it because it is tasty and delicious. I pour it into bottles and they take it to school with them.” Chum Chanty.
