Pyoy Sev and her family are hard workers, laboring from morning until night. Pyoy makes a slippery trip to the village’s spring three times per day. The water is exposed to contamination from feces and bacteria.

Even with her 14-year-old working in the rice fields, they still lack enough food to eat and no clean water to drink.

When the drinking water makes them sick, they miss even more work, resulting in hungry bellies for everyone in the household.

The family is close-knit, depending on one another for everything.

“Because there is no money and no clean water, we have no choice but to use the water,” she said.

Pyoy has three children, a 19-year-old daughter and two sons, 14 and 7 years of age. Pyoy said that they aren’t able to go to school.

“There is no money, so they go to work instead,” she said.

You can help Pyoy Sev and all of Chrung Muoy village today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, plus a new, safe water source near their village.

Lasting change means more than just building a well. Local Lifewater staff will work house by house to teach healthy habits and share the love of Christ with everyone in Chrung Muoy village.

With clean water, her family will become stronger, which means they can work and save more. For families in Chrung Muoy, more money means fewer nights without dinner and more children in school.

All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Lifewater has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Our Board-approved policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to that project, with up to ten percent used for administrative and fundraising expenses. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
