One hand pump well


Hand pump wells are urgently needed in many communities to provide safe drinking water for children and their families. Thanks to your gift, children may no longer have to make long, dangerous journeys on foot to collect water from unreliable, contaminated sources.

Because of you, children could be safer, with more time for school and play as well as protection from the risk of deadly waterborne diseases.

How this gift helps

Drinking water from a stream can be dangerous: the water is unclean and children are at risk of drowning. Before two hand-pumped wells were constructed in L’ak village, Cambodia, people had to travel nearly 2km on a difficult road to collect water from the stream. Now, even people living far from the village centre have access to safe water. Siva, a 14-year-old boy, who lives near the well told ChildFund staff: “I like the new pump-well so much. I can drink and clean myself whenever I want, I just go and pump the water. I used to walk a long way to get water from the stream and sometimes the bucket would fall and spill all of the water out before I got home.”
