How you can help transform lives before 30 June
At least 1 in 3 schools around the world lack access to water and basic sanitation. Your support can help change that.
Your compassion can help provide safe water and other life-changing services to 51 villages across Cambodia.
Your gift can help deliver The Dignity Program* to 11 districts, 20 communes across four provinces in rural Cambodia.
Water = Life
For many families in rural Cambodia (and around the world), water is a luxury they simply cannot afford. This means that children are drinking dirty water and falling ill.
The gift of clean water can be truly life changing. Clean water means families can grow food on their farm. They can water the garden, grow vegetables and have enough food for their children to eat.
Clean water also means children can wash their hands and are less likely to miss school because of illness.
With your generous support, children can access clean water and spend more time learning in the classroom.
How lack of clean water traps families in poverty
2.2 billion people do not have access to safely managed drinking water, forcing them to experience a life of poverty. Addressing water scarcity is key to helping families stay healthy.
Health and well-being are only possible with safe water and maintaining hygiene and sanitation practices.
The important thing to remember is that poverty is not a choice. With your support, we can help communities like Salin’s to create lasting change.
