Life in Kob Muoy: The Kloang’s Story

Ling watches the numbers as her father places cassava on the scale. Her parents cannot read or write, so when harvest comes around, it is her duty to make sure they’re getting a fair sale.

Her mother, Touch Kloang, is a laborer and a farmer.

Two of Touch’s daughters attend Kob Thmey primary, another is in kindergarten, and another received a scholarship to study in town. She stays in dorms and comes home to visit when school is not in session.

“I want my children to be in school so they will be successful and so they won’t be tricked in the future,” Touch said.

The Kloang family are hard workers, laboring from 5 a.m. until the sun goes down. Still, they battle water-borne illness and expensive health clinic fees.

Each day after school, 9-year-old Ling fetches water with her mother. They make three trips a day to have enough for household use and for drinking. There are worms in the water, and Ling is careful to scoop around them.

It isn’t just tiresome, but dangerous.

“Last year, I sprained my ankle from slipping on wet ground while walking on the trail with water on my back,” Touch said. “I couldn’t work for three months.”

Despite it all, the family is happy, and they have big dreams.

“If I had a motorcycle, I could take my children to the health clinic and I could travel for work,” Touch said.

You can help the Kloang family and others just like them in Kob Muoy 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. For Kob Muoy, clean water means children no longer have to make dangerous journeys for unsafe water.

Here’s what happens when you sponsor a village water project through Lifewater:

Partner with a village. Your gift kickstarts a community water project.
Teach healthy habits. Small changes make a big impact on family health.
Build a well. The village contributes up to 15% for construction.
Measure impact. Local staff track success and provide support.
Engage the church. We equip local churches to love their community.

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.
