Community water provision, Cham community, Cambodia
KungFuture's goal is to use education to lift children and their families out of poverty. Part of this education involves clean water provision and an understanding about the risks of consuming dirty, unsafe water, as well as the benefits to health, time and wealth in having a guaranteed source of clean water.
The Cham community lost their traditional lands during the rule of the Khmer Rouge and their most recent homes to large modern commercial developments, the Cham community now survive on the edge of the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers. Issues facing the community are varied and acute, amongst these is the problem created by a lack of clean safe drinking water. Before use of LIFESAVER jerrycans, the community was drinking straight from the rivers causing the spread of dysentery.
56 LIFESAVER jerrycans have been deployed by Kung Future to the Cham community in Cambodia. The early signs are encouraging and Kung Future have personally thanked LIFESAVER for producing such an innovative, intelligent solution.
