One of the simplest gifts is also one of the most important. These ceramic water filters reduce E.coli by 99.99%. In the most remote parts of Cambodia, where safe drinking water is difficult to access, they will help prevent disease and keep children healthy.
How this gift helps
In Chhloung district, Cambodia, 60% of households use unsafe water sources (unboiled, creek or open-well water) and only 30% of the population has access to wells. This causes problems such as diarrhoea, fever and general poor health. Thanks to Gifts for Good donors, six-year-old Chenda and her family now have a water filter and as a result, her health has improved. “Before having the water filter, I used to drink water from the creek and regularly got diarrhoea and a fever. Now, I drink clean water from the water filter and my health is better,” Chenda happily told ChildFund staff.
