TBAUNG PHNOM, Hun Sen Chrey Ho Phnov High School

  • 07:00 PM

Tbaung Phnom is a rural village located to the southeast part of Kampong Speu Province and is the poorest village in the area. This humble village is situated about 42 kilometers from the town. Large percentages of the local population lack access to clean water, proper sanitation facilities, and electricity. The villagers generate their income from planting rice, raising animals and from crop subsistence agriculture. With poor existing infrastructure in the area that are pending for unknown renovation, it makes their living condition very challenging. Hun Sen Chrey Ho Phnov High School enrolls students from many villages within the District. The school does not presently have a water treatment facility or hand-washing station. Students bring water from home or buy bottled water because the school’s water is unhealthy. The most wanted and needed thing for the school is clean drinking water. Through the combined efforts of Coca-Cola Cambodia and Planet Water Foundation, World Water Day will be that day when change arrives.

Drinking from Ponds and Contaminated Wells
Untreated Water Sources

“The school has no clean water for the students. Our students have raised their concern over the water in the school because it is unknown if it is clean and poses a health risk. We will all be happy if someone could bring clean water here for the sake of our school, and everybody will benefit from having clean water.”

– Mr. Khut Khemren, 48, School Headmaster
