The average U.S. household uses more than 300 gallons of water per day. In stark contrast, many Cambodians don’t even have access to treated water. Here’s how we’re responding to the Cambodian water crisis.
We recently had the privilege of feeding approximately 750 poor families in Kampong Thom province, Cambodia. We thank God for his provision that allows us to minister to so many people who are hungry—both physically and spiritually.
The COVID-19 crisis had a significant impact on poverty and inequality in Cambodia, and the negative effects are still rippling through the country. We continue to fight poverty by meeting the mental, physical and spiritual needs of the people, and we need your help!
Cambodia has some of the lowest levels of access to clean water in all of Asia. In the capital city of Phnom Penh, the Water Supply Authority issued a warning in regard to the shortage of clean water for 2022’s dry season.
As we enter the second quarter of 2022, we have much to praise God for already this year. We set a big goal of building 160 new water wells throughout Cambodia this year, and we are excited to report that we’ve reached nearly 40% of that goal in just three months!
Community outreach is one of the foundations of our ministry at Rock Foundation Cambodia. Most of the people we serve live without access to the most basic needs, including a consistent, reliable source of food.
Here at Rock Foundation Cambodia, we are humbled to reflect on the work God has done through our ministry in 2021. As we look ahead to the new year, we have three specific goals we’ll be working toward as we serve some of the most impoverished communities in the country.
We are very blessed to report on the impact of our Christmastime food distribution and community outreach. On Dec. 13, 2021, we were able to distribute over 11,000 pounds (5,000 kilograms) of rice in partnership with Mercy Village Church.
We are excited to share that we recently met with Battambang Province’s head of the appeals court. With the cooperation and partnership of local officials, we have the green light for drilling 10 new water wells.
We’re overjoyed to say that, recently, we successfully gave away rice, noodles and fish to 250 families in a large community outreach event. The amount of food parcels given away this year has shattered our previous years’ records…
