Day 1 in Siem Reap Cambodia: 28 Water Filters – Over 700 people with Clean Waters

January 9, 2016

BWFL-22 BWFL-28 BWFL-56We spent the entire day distributing 28 life saving water filters to various families living on and around the main floating village in Siem Reap where the water on the lake goes up and down by 12 feet. This is also where the amazing Temples are located in which many visitors come from all over the world to see.
This is the low season for the water, and this means the water is at the peak of contamination. Last time we were here the structures were covered with water. This time we drove right up in our van, which is very strange for me. The last time we were visiting these homes by boat…very strange feeling for me.
Approximately 700+ children/family members are now drinking safe water ( this one photo shows 5 of the families ) mostly small children. The children are running all around us to see, of course, what surprises we have for them. You would love to see the joy on the childrens’ faces as I give them bubbles. It is so precious, and special for me, to see the fun and love that these children have, and so graciously share with us.
We have packed days! For the next 8 days, we are distributing filters here in Cambodia. Then we take off got 14 days in Thailand, mainly in the slums and small villages/orphanges.
Please, keep coming back to see updates and more photos. I’m so very thankful to all of our supporters so we could bring 200 filters with us on this trip and 50 more will be waiting for us in Thailand – bringing safe drinking water to thousands!
Happy New year សួស្ដីឆ្នាំថ្មី
