Drink Well, Eat Well and Live Well, is a slogan commonly used as a form to remind people to live a healthy life. With understanding that school is the second home for general kids, Angkor Kids Center took an advanced step to have our kids and team a healthier life. So what we have approached?
Purified Drinking Water System
A well constructed and professionally installed Purified Drinking Water System is now available on the ground of AKC school. The system comprised of water tanks on high stands, purified filters, UV system / filters, basins, taps, faucets, piping and electricity cables as outlined in this reference picture:
Purified Drinking Water System Project Funding
Let’s call back Mr. Samnang Chhon, the Founding Director of Angkor Kids Center / All For Kids NGO, his business, Asia Natural Tours (ANT) With his business activities, Sam could reach out to the like-minded people and partners from everywhere in the world. In having a good relationship with Ms. Donna Rix from Local Measure Australian office, who were planning to bring over her company annual event to Siem Reap. The company wish to leave a meaningful souvenir to the country. Angkor Kids Center and the Purified Drinking Water System Project were presented with a great interest.
With our established team, Mr. Hak Hien, our Executive Director, submitted a proposal of over fifteen hundreds USD (USD 1,500+) to ANT DMC to be passed on LM. The proposal accepted by LM, ANT advanced the cash to AKC to kick the construction off.
Purified Drinking Water System Construction and Installation
Before jumping to the flow of construction work, we would like to remind that. Without the powerful SOLAR SYSTEM founded through Helpucation e.V. this Purified Drinking Water System Project would not have been at this ease!
Right after getting the proposal acceptance by Local Measure management at a very short notice. AKC committee started having a meeting to finalize the project design and the outcome. With Sam’s extensive network and contacts, a team of local engineering, water experts and contractors, lead by Mr. Ponlok have been contracted. What even potential, one of the team members are from Siem Reap Water Supply Authority. This made out system reached to the highest standard, because the water has been tested in the professional LAB for many stages.
With their great passion in making this system and this project the most successful, this team of engineering work all day and half night on the weekend. Just after three weeks, a amazing construction and the system is beautifully rising next door to our existing school building. The water Potential of Hydrogen (PH) are between 7.5 to 8.5 which is the most qualified and best for health.
We don’t have just safe drinking water station, we have also designed a hand washing station where the water sourced from the secondary filtered tank. Samrong village now is the first communities ever who could access to safe drinking water from the taps in Cambodia.
Drinking Water Inauguration Event Day
Not before long, as of 22nd February 2019, the donor organization, Local Measure team arrived at AKC school to witness their incredible project accomplishment as the company and do the hand-on service work with their passion. The group get greeted by the school committee and kids, right after a short introduction of the overall project. The 40 participants split in teams, some work on finishing the foundation of the stands, some working on the arts of painting and some work on plastic littering collection.
Then the event day ended with a monk blessing following the local traditional celebration of new accomplishment. The LM team hand monks the offerings and hand some biscuits, writing pats and pencils to the over 300 kids. And bit the goodbye.
