One of the easiest ways to combat poverty and disease is to provide access to clean water sources. Access to safe drinking water is the foundation for the issues of health, education, food, livelihood, and gender equalization.
Sok Lon is a rice farmer who lives in a palm house in Pongro village, Prasat Bakong district. He helps support 3 family units of 14 total people * 9 males, 5 females. Lon would be considered a wealthier villager because he owns 2 cows and a plow engine, and has 1 ton of rice in storage. However, the families get their water from a traditional pit well, which is a deep hole in the ground, and suffer from diarrhea every two weeks. Last summer Lon´s family received a Trailblazer bio-sand water filter. Now women in the family spend less time caring for the sick, and as a result have more time to pursue economic sustainability through small business or gardening. Their children are healthier and have more time for education.
With a $60 USD gift you can create a ripple effect of independence and development - a lasting legacy. You can create stories like Lon´s.
