Why are we trekking Cambodia?

According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF 3.5 million (22%) people in Cambodia don’t have access to safe water. 6.5 million (41%) people in Cambodia don’t have access to adequate sanitation.

Despite its growing tourism industry, and the benefit that this brings, Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Still recovering from the Khmer Rouge regime, the country lacks skilled engineers and health professionals. Many of the rural communities Just a Drop work with rely on Cambodia’s largest industry, agriculture, as a source of income. A lack of infrastructure and the effects of climate change, which has created severe droughts followed by extreme flooding, has hindered development. Nearly half of the population lives in poverty.

Cambodia has high rainfall and is prone to flooding, so although there’s not a lack of groundwater, much of this is contaminated and not safe to drink. WASH solutions in Cambodia address these issues of water contamination and storage; and increasing sanitation facilities.

Just a Drop work with village communities in rural areas around Siem Reap to build and repair shallow hand-dug wells, and provide bio-sand filters, latrines and hygiene training. We ensure villages have a sustainable source of water, which is protected from contamination. Find out more about our work in Cambodia here!
