Cambodia Wash Project

 

Helen and Vin Keane spoke to us last week about solving the lack of readily available drinking water at a village in north west Cambodia.

They were able to demonstrate first hand experience with the sinking of a well for the village which removes the necessity for the children to carry water from some distance away every day for their daily needs.

They showed photos of the pump which has a valve which can easily be replaced using a readily available thong.

Our Rotary club through RAWCS sponsored the well.

Vin also spoke about the terrible legacy of the Khmer Rouge which dessimated the population and has a left a scar on the people.  The photos on the table show a couple of the very young people who suffered at the hands of the Khmer Rouge which reined from 1975 to 1979
