After a long delay due to Covid restrictions, we were so happy to have the celebration at Sre Robong village for the successful completion and formal handover of the Svey Leu District Villages Water and Sanitation project. The event was attended by the District Governor of Svay Leu and the District Education Director, community leaders, office holders from the Rotary Club of Sangke-Battambang, members of the BFT team.
A village health volunteer in Sre Robing explained the great outcomes delivered by the project. “People often complained about skin problems and dysentery. From my WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) training I realized that was caused by using bad water. People are now all collecting water from the water filtered system or bore wells and I noticed that there are now no people complaining that their children have dysentery or skin problems.”
