Still recovering from years of civil war and genocide, much of the Cambodian population still struggles with water access and improved sanitation. More than 10,000 die from water-related illness each year, many of them children under five.
One of the longest running Wine To Water project sites, we are seeing the impact that clean water can have in transforming communities. Today, 35,000 Cambodians now have access to clean water and/or improved sanitation through the Wine To Water community.
This next year, Cambodia will see 96 new wells, 120 new latrines and 600 ceramic water filters that will affect thousands more.
