Clean water - life's most basic need

Mrs. Un

Having access to water and clean water is vital to life. Water that is contaminated is linked to transmission of diseases and poor sanitation, which exposes people to health risks that would otherwise be preventable. Contaminated drinking water causes hundreds of thousands of people to die each year from diarrhea. Data shows that 8 out of 10 people living in rural areas lack access to water and clean water.

Trailblazer works to reduce the spread of disease and improve health conditions for people living in rural areas by providing access to water through wells, and clean water with biosand water filters.

Below is one story of Mrs. Un and her family who were one of several families that received a biosand water filter and water pump well from Trailblazer in 2021.

Mrs. Un, 61 years old, lives in Kbal Krapeu village, Reul commune, Puok district with her son’s family. This family has four bicycles and one motorbike for transportation, and 10 chickens, which speaks to their level of poverty.

Mrs. Un reported that before they received the well and biosand filter from Trailblazer, they had difficulty getting water to drink and use for cooking. The well they had been using was about 100 meters from their home, and they did not have a filter to use. They used the water directly from the well, and without proper disinfection it made them sick and suffer from diarrhea. Because of this problem, it had an impact on their family's economic status, especially due to the loss of time to earn a living.

Mrs. Un continued saying, that after they attended the Clean Water and Hygiene Training from Trailblazer and received the water pump well and biosand water filter they recognized that their health situation improved and they were less sick with no more diarrhea. They also no longer had problems getting clean and safe water.

Lastly, they are very happy to have had Trailblazer come to their village and give them access to clean water and provide knowledge of body hygiene and sanitation training. They are healthier and happier, thanks to Trailblazer.
