In the year 2009, drop4drop began their very first clean water project working alongside their partner charities Global Angels. Their goal is to provide Bio-Sand water Filters to families in the country of Cambodia. If they are able to accomplish this laudable goal, 150 people in a community will receive clean water. Here is a link to drop4drop's official facebook page.http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=257947986553
The charity that drop4drop is working with (Global Angels), is an innovative children's charity, devoted to changing the lives of children across the world hoping to a potent effect on world suffering.
The project in Cambodia is very significant and will prove to be a radical change in many citizens of Cambodia. Only 31% of the rural population have access to clean water, resulting in an alarming 69% of the populace with unclean wells, ponds and rivers for their water accessibility. These filthy water sources cause many citizens to catch water-borne diseases such as diarrhea and typhoid. The dirty water supplies not only have negative primary effects, but carry secondary effects as well such as, children missing out on education and adults losing income due to illnesses.
However this project will be a life-changing one to those residing in the community. Fresh, clean water will be available to more people. Drop4drop blogs, "We are so happy to be able to provide funding to this life-saving project and this is just the start for drop4drop’s plans for 2009, there is much more to come!"
