What an experience in Prek Russeay village with the AOC Water and Sanitation (WASH) team. We’ve been filling 5 filter moulds per day on average. The rings are the forms for the toilet tanks.
Something as simple as bio-sand filters and toilets significantly cuts down the rate of preventable diseases. As always, we are committed to bringing a message of Hope and providing communities with practical help.
This is how Asian Outreach Cambodia lives out our mantra of “Loving God and Loving our Neighbour.” Here are just a few pictures from our day in Prek Russeay village.
This is the first WASH project in this community. We were thrilled to have ERDO as a partner with us in this village. There are over 500 families and initially we’ll be able to help almost 200. I asked the village leaders if they were happy for us to be there working alongside them with bio-sand water filters and toilets. They burst out laughing and smiling…I’m guessing that is a yes!
