SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA – May 2016

Signs of prolonged drought are everywhere. The mangrove forest is dry. The Kleang river is reduced to a stream. Even the deep ponds that were excavated recently are empty. Adults and children are carrying brown, unsanitary water to their homes. Water channels leading to Tonle Sap aren't navigable. Boats are everywhere on dry land. The fishing industry has stopped. In short, we are facing the worst drought Cambodia has seen in years – we are in crisis!

We are raising funds to work on providing real drought relief in and around Siem Reap, Cambodia. A drought is wider ranging that simply a lack of water and affects the production and availability of food and health also. The funds raised will support communities through any aspect of this crises. There are thousands in the province right now without water of any sort. We need funds and volunteers and perhaps equipment donations. If you are able to support in anyway please contact the lead members of the group (Rick and Lynn) here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1707813832811517/

 

Where is the money going?

  • The initial need will be to ensure water is reaching communities in need through: water deliveries in the rural areas including truck rental, rental or purchase of tanks/containers.
  • If it starts raining soon and communities have enough clean water our efforts then will focus on the critical food shortage that has occurred due to the drought.

 

Please donate here to support these communities suffering from drought:

$0.20 (€0.18) provides drinking water for one person for one day
$7.50 (€6.60) provides 2,000 liters of water
$10 (€8.80) provides 50 people with drinking water for one day
$60 (€52.70) provides a truck and driver to deliver water to areas where it is needed.

Imagine what we could do if everyone on here could donate a tank...

 

What is happening in Siem Reap at this moment?
There are several fundraising events ongoing;

 

Please note that this is not NGO driven, it is being organized by experienced, well known and respected expats in and around Siem Reap who are attempting to react quickly to this urgent need.
