Dedicated mothers, like Theakong, are desperate for their children to stay healthy and safe, but with no access to clean water and lack of sanitation systems, even their best attempts are never enough. By equipping hard-working mothers with the best hygiene practices and sanitary systems, they can keep their children healthy and thriving with the opportunity to go to school.

This Christmas, you can help give a family the gift of clean water.


“We were doing open defecations,” says Theakong, a 55 year old mother living in rural Cambodia. “We didn’t have a water filter or clean water to drink. We got diseases – vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing.”

So when an ADRA project began in Theakong’s village, she was eager to participate. “ADRA talked with me about raising chickens, growing veggies, having good sanitation, and building a latrine,” Theakong recalls. “This made me feel hopeful.”

Now, Theakong is running her own agri-business, but crucially she has witnessed her family’s health drastically improve. “ADRA helped me get a latrine,” Theakong says. “No more bad smell!” ADRA also provided Theakong and her family a water filter so they no longer become sick from drinking contaminated water.

“Since we received a latrine and a water filter our family is better.”
