charity: water

In rural Cambodia, safe water is hard to find. Families are often limited to ponds and rivers polluted by human waste or groundwater that is red with high concentrations of iron, which can lead to diarrhea and disease.

“The biggest challenge is the dirty water. I’m constantly concerned about my family getting sick.”
Sun Sin, a 30-year-old wife and mother of two.

charity: water is working to change that. With the support of the MSFF, they are funding BioSand Filters, which kill 99% of bacteria in dirty water. It is a simple, low-cost solution that uses a biological process to purify water. Through the MSFF’s Strategic Partnership, charity: water is bringing clean water to approximately 9,000 people in Cambodia – and to a further 4,000 people across Africa and Asia. We are honoured to support their extraordinary efforts as they bring health, hope and opportunity to vulnerable communities across these regions.

“charity: water is extremely grateful for the MSFF’s support and belief that everyone should have access to clean water.”
