Help Stop Little Maly From Getting Sick
Little Maly has just turned 4 and she struggles with chronic diarrhoea and dehydration.
Her village water supply is compromised; it’s dirty and full of bacteria which causes life threatening diseases like cholera and typhoid.
Sadly, 1 in 6 children don’t survive to see their 5th birthday.
Maly is more likely to see this fate due to her poor village sanitation.
There is no work in the village for her dad, so he works illegally in Thailand, often spending all his wages on medicine to save his sick family.
Australian children are fortunate they don’t face these challenges, but imagine if they did! You would want others to help too.
The Rotary Club of Brighton’s - Sustainable Communities Cambodia pilot program in a similar village in another part of Rural Cambodia changed the lives of 800 people forever by providing access to clean water.
By teaching the villagers better farming practices, we’ve enabled the men there to stay home with their families, to grow crops to help feed them, also to make an income by selling part of their produce at the local market.
This increase in well being has enabled them to get their children to school where they previously weren’t able.
So please support us by passing this message onto colleagues, family and friends and by making a donation and help us to save lives.Read more...
Clean Water For Cambodia
Following the successful completion of our pilot Sustainable Community Project in Cambodia, Brighton Rotary have launched their first crowd funding campaign to raise vitally needed funds so that we may roll this project out in a second group of villages in an impoverished rural area in the north of Cambodia - home to over 4,000 people.
A tax deductible donation of as little as $20 will provide a sola light that will enable children to study into the night. For $600 you could provide a rain water harvesting tank that will provide families with access to clean drinking water all year round.
As Winston Churchill would say "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Please click through to our crowd funding campaign for more detail and more importantly make a donation and make a life.
Together we can make a difference.
