Personal Challenge

Clean water please!

My Story

Most of us don't wake up in the morning worrying if we have water to brush our teeth, flush the toilet, take our showers, wash our hands, drink, make food, do our laundry, wash our cars, clean our toilets, paint portraits, use clean kitchen utensils, go swimming, shower our pets, okay you get the drift... basically to lead clean and healthy lives. Rural families in Cambodia don't have proper access to clean water. That's why I'm going this December to install biosand water filters together with Water for Cambodia (MAD), part of a social enterprise that my colleague founded. 5% of your donation goes to administrative expenses, 95% goes towards purchasing these filters (USD 100/filter for a family that lasts up to 20 years) and the local labour needed to install and upkeep them. Any amount is good - whether the value of a nice, exotic holiday, or a simple meal - please partner with me in helping Cambodians take that first step towards living the clean and healthy lives that we enjoy everyday. No idea what a biosand filter is?
