The Cambodian Children’s Charity (CamKids):
Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Crippled by decades of war, international embargoes, political instability and economic stagnation, Cambodia’s infrastructure and social support networks are only slowly being rebuilt. The majority of the population lives in rural areas, are poor and lack access to even the most basic services. With over half of the population under the age of 18 years, there are serious concerns for their economic and social well-being. Cambodia is one of the countries worst affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the impact on many households in human and financial terms is devastating.
‘CamKids’ is a development and relief organisation, dedicated to providing direct aid to children in Cambodia who are either poor or whose parents are not there for them: orphans, street children, children living in poor rural areas and children affected by natural disasters, such as flood or famine. In a country where there is a high rate of child abandonment, we also support programs to help strengthen vulnerable families and keep them together by working with local communities, offering support to families through the provision of nutritional, medical and educational support, healthcare advice and vocational skills as well as support for families that have been affected by illness or disease.
Whilst many people are feeling the pinch, we sometimes forget how good we actually have it. 884 million people in the world do not have access to safe water. This, and lack of safe sanitation, result in over two million people dying from water-related diseases every year. The lack of clean water close to people’s homes also affects people’s time, livelihoods, education, social development and quality of life.
We use water to drink, to clean, to cook, to grow things, to wash our cars, to do countless things that we often take for granted, because we have easy access to one of the most precious resources in the world.
WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. TLC Business wants to support WaterAid with their mission to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities.
