Water and basic sanitation

  • Clean drinking water and basic sanitation

    We provide water filters, drill wells and build toilet houses in rural areas.

    The daily access to toilets is unfortunately not possible for approx. 10 million Cambodians (source: World Toilet Organization, 2011). Especially children often suffer from severe and deadly diseases. As about 74% of deaths in Cambodia are caused by water-borne diseases, we would like to support other sanitation projects. There are countless villages in Cambodia that do not have clean water or sanitary facilities. The villages occupy their water from wells (if there are any) and usually cook for the preparation of food. You usually do your business somewhere in the field.

    In recent years we have already financed 4 toilet houses in Cambodia. These were built massively, with a collecting container consisting of concrete rings. Inside there is a typical Asian toilet bowl as well as a large water reservoir. From this, the water can be removed for rinsing as well as for showers by ladle after each shop. With these measures, we have been able to significantly improve the construction of basic sanitation and the supply of clean water.

    We also have drilled 1 wells and provided approx. 150 water filters. As a result, we have already been able to provide clean drinking water to more than 150 families, far more than 650 people. We would like to expand our activities in this area.
