Latest Project News

Nev, her mother, and her two younger sisters take turns fetching water for the family. Nev’s journey is a one-hour-endeavor. For her aging mother, the journey is longer.

Nev, her daughter, and her husband live with her elderly parents in Chet Muoy village. Four of Nev’s younger siblings also live in the home.

The family of 9 grows cassava to eat, and both of the men in the home work labor-intensive jobs.

They cannot afford their own bathroom, so they go outside like their neighbors in Chet Muoy. Nev recognizes the danger of using the bathroom outside.

“When I need to use the toilet at night, I have to wait until the next morning,” she said.

Going to the bathroom outside exposes the family to snake bites, to attack by others seeking to do harm, and to other physical dangers like slipping and falling on the wet ground.

The unsafe water contributes to the family’s consistent diarrhea and fevers. Nev wishes that her 2-year-old daughter and younger siblings would receive safe water and be spared the sickness.

You can help Chet Muoy village today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, their own toilets, and 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 clean water, Nev’s family will no longer travel dangerous journeys for contaminated water. They will have a safe restroom, and they’ll be healthier and able to work more.

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.

March 07, 2019: CLTS Complete

In Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), each village goes through exercises that reveal how their current practices are making them sick, such as identifying all the places where feces are contaminating their environment. This important step equips communities to be knowledgeable about their health and willing to make changes.

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.
