The gift of a household water filter will give children access to drinking water, and help them avoid diarrhoea and other life-threatening waterborne diseases.
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.
