We have officially launched a clean water project in Kampong Speu, Cambodia. The project is the second in the SIF’s Water For Life programme first launched in Siem Reap, Cambodia, in 2010.

The objective of Water For Life (Kampong Speu) is to provide over 8,400 Cambodian villagers with convenient access to clean drinking water through the installation of 1,400 bio-sand water filters in rural households over three years. The households are located in 10 communes of the Kampong Speu province, about 50km away from Phnom Penh city centre.
