“I don’t know if the spring water is contaminated, but I have fever and stomach aches often.” – Kach, mother of two

When it rains, Kach Kloang holds a water bottle in each hand, sticking the bottles just beyond her corrugated roof to the Cambodian sky.

“When it rains, I don’t need to walk to the spring,” she said.

The mother of two has lived in a small home in Kob Pir for her whole life. Her husband passed years ago, and her eldest daughter has since married and moved away. Her 23-year-old son, Choeun, cares for her.

Choeun does labor-intensive work around the village. Still, there is not usually enough money to buy rice each day.

Kach is kind, full of laughter, and hopeful for the future.

“One day, I will have a big house!” she said. “And, I will have a toilet of my own.”

When it isn’t raining, Kach gathers water from a spring. It takes her 30 minutes, and with the pain in her knees, Kach is only able to make one trip a day. Using the bathroom in an open field is also difficult for Kach; she fears she will fall when going at night.

“I don’t know if the spring water is contaminated,” she said. “But, I have fever and stomach aches often.”

You can help Kach and all of Kob Pir today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, plus a new, safe water source near their village that will last for generations to come.

Lasting change means more than just building a well. Local Lifewater staff will work house by house in Kob Pir, building relationships with community members, and sharing the love of Christ with everyone.

With clean water nearby, Kach won’t have to make the journey for water.
