Splash

Our mission is simple: We clean water for kids. Safe drinking water is the most essential life-sustaining requirement. There is no substitute - not at any price. In this day and age, in such a plentiful world, clean water should no longer be the privilege of some, but the basic right of every child.

Running to clean water with excited smiles!

The following is a postcard from Charissa Murphy, GlobalGiving's In-the-Field Representative in Southeast Asia, about her recent visit to Splash in Cambodia.

 

Running across the dirt-covered school courtyard, students in weathered uniforms race to the clean water fountain station. Some of the children carry jugs or bottles with them, while others chase more instant heat relief and hydration. Regardless of their size, they leap up in enthusiasm to turn the faucet knobs, feet hanging off the ground and their heads or water jugs completely submerged under the water steam. The excitement for water ripples throughout the campus and in the smiles of each of the children.

 

This clean water at the school serves thousands within the community. Splash installed both the water station as well as the filter system with a UV light that keeps the water clean and healthy, thus improving the health and quality of life for each family it touches.

 

Splash also showed me the system it installed at a local non-profit (NGO) that supports hundreds of people each day with livelihood skills and vocational training. This water not only feeds their thirst, but it also is used for cooking and baking, which then serves the entire set of students and teachers in the buildings within the NGO's programs.

 

If only these water systems could be installed everywhere, then we would certainly have a much healthier, happier world.

 

I want to thank Splash for allowing me to visit!

Clean Water, Appropriate Hygiene, Better Health

 Clean water makes a HUGE difference to kids -- Imagine if YOU had to drink water with e. coli or fecal coliform in it. (Yuck!)

Many kids don't have a choice.

In Cambodia (both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap) Splash is making sure that schools have clean water and hygiene education services, plus also orphanages and shelters.

Our latest report is that we have water flowing in Cambodia for over 62,000 kids. For a closer look, please see: http://www.splash.org/where/country/cambodia

For examples of specific sites, please see:

Thank YOU for making such a difference in kids' lives!

The Kids Asked Us to Tell You "Thank You!"

Several Splash staff recently travelled to Cambodia to visit the children supported by your gifts! They were full of smiles, and eagerly toured us around their facilities (whether an orphanage, a center for street kids, or a school).

We promised we'd tell you "Thank you!" (The photos here are from those very conversations.)

Here is what is most exciting now: Having secured clean water in many sites in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Splash is now augmenting the impact of clean water through hygiene education (for example, teaching kids to wash hands after using the toilet, and before meals) because clean hands + safe water have a far greater positive effect than clean water alone.

Thank you for your support - Clean water for kids in Cambodia is possible, it is increasing, and you are part of the solution!

P.S., You can always follow Splash in Cambodia at this link.
