Svay Leu, Cambodia
Reaching the unreached in northwestern Cambodia
While much of urban Cambodia has access to safe water and sanitation, the people in Svay Leu are far less reached in their remote, rural province. Only 10-15% have access to improved sanitation, and community members and leaders consistently point to lack of safe water access as a major obstacle to personal health and productivity. Most people have never heard that they are known and loved by God.Download Project Profile
