Water Wells in Cambodia
Since June 2014, our organisation provides drinkable water to local communities in Cambodia. We are engaged in such a development activity, simply because many rural communities rely on water wells in Cambodia for their daily water consumption, as tap water is undrinkable due to high arsenic levels and bottled water is expensive in the country.
As of July 2016, we have established 19 wells in Cambodia. Here are some photos of the wells established so far in the Country:
Water Wells Establishment Procedure
Cost of establishing a water well in Cambodia is $4,500 with an approximate completion time of two months. After receiving your donation, we contact our local partner in Cambodia. Before digging, we seek permission from the local government through our local partner.
After obtaining permits, we do a preliminary excavation and usually find water between 40 to 60 metres. After reaching the water catchment, we examine the water quality by sending samples to labs where we test them for 18 different criterias.

If the water is drinkable, we install water pumps and place the names of water well donors on the establishment. We provide well sponsors a receipt for their donation, as well as an information sheet which pinpoints the well’s location in the country. As the gps position of the well is provided in the info sheet, our well sponsors can have a stopover in Cambodia and visit their establishment.

Our wells come with a two year warranty and also regulated by local authorities for its construction and water standard quality. Due to their depth, these artesian wells supply clean drinking water to locals throughout the year. It is estimated that between 400 to 700 people benefit from these wells every day.
