Cambodia

 

Cambodia is located in South East Asia. During the civil war, it is estimated that close to 2 million Cambodians were killed by the Khmer Rouge regime during the 4 year reign of terror from 1975 to 1979. The Cambodian people are survivors, and today the people still face numerous challenges, however it is a nation that is growing and moving from its dark past into a new future. Access to water is a major concern for many Khmer families living in rural Cambodia. Particularly in the dry season, the lack of water causes sickness, extra expenditures, and a physical stress when water is not readily available. 40% of all households or 5.4 million people in Cambodia consume drinking water from a non-improved source, for example from an open well or surface water. Christianity has only been present in Cambodia since 1923, and by 1970 there were only 700 known believers. Many of these believers died as martyrs during the war. Currently, this country widely un-evangelized with less than 1-2% of Cambodians being Christians. Your partnership in Cambodia gives pastors and local believers a resource to love on people physically and spiritually.

India

 

The world’s largest democracy and second most populous country emerged as a major power in the 1990s. However, India is still tackling huge social, economic, and environmental problems. Health is one of the most serious issues affecting development in India. Diarrhea alone causes more than 1,600 deaths each day, making it the second leading cause of death among Indian children. The World Bank estimates that 21% of communicable diseases in India are related to unsafe water.

 

Neverthirst has been working in India since 2009 and has partnered with local churches to provide access to clean water for tens of thousands of people living in rural communities. Our Water is Life project focuses on improving water supply through a high-quality hand pump that reduces collection time. The community needs to raise the future repair fund and save the money in an account before the project can commence. This demonstrates ownership. The project is implemented through our local partner working in partnership with local Pastors and Church Planters. The water projects also provide the opportunity for Pastors to demonstrate the love of God in word and deed.

Chad

 

Chad is one of the poorest nations on the planet and is ranked 185 out of 188 by the United Nations Human Development Index. Lack of water is the most common problem in this desert country. People drink whatever is available, usually unimproved surface water.

 

Access to safe water remains a massive challenge with over 6 million people (55% of rural population) drinking water from a poor unsafe source. This leads to the problem of poor health and increased expenditure on health and travel to rural health clinics. Chad remains vulnerable to cholera outbreaks due to untreated water and poor sanitation, and it is one of the few remaining countries in the world to report cases of guinea worm in 2015. Water treatment in the home is often inadequate to meet the needs of the family and, in particular, children.
