Water for Life (Siem Reap) Phase 2 Project Launch

On 27 September 2017, the Singapore International Foundation launched another of its signature Water for Life projects in Siem Reap, the third instalment in Cambodia and fifth in Asia. The four-year project aims to provide 9,000 Cambodian villagers in the districts of Chi Kraeng and Svay Leu in Siem Reap with access to clean water and equip them with basic hygiene knowledge to reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases.

The VIPs at the launch experienced first-hand a demonstration of proper handwashing as part of basic hygiene training for school children - one of the two components of the Water for Life project. The other component is the installation of bio-sand water filters.

The SIF reaches another milestone in its 15 year friendship with Cambodia with the launch of the Water for Life (Siem Reap) Phase 2 Project. A strong spirit of mutual cooperation and a deep sense of mutual respect underpin this friendship.
