Title: Clean Water for a Village

During the dry season the villagers of Tropangsdock in Cambodia depend on a few wells whose water is harmful to their health. However, there is no alternative to using this water source, as buying drinkable water is unaffordable for the people. During the wet season people collect water, but after one month their stock is depleted. Through the construction of cisterns this problem has been alleviated: water collected in the wet season is multiply filtered in a collection system and therefore kept usable. Building materials such as sand and stones were provided by the villagers.
