Sva Houl School

Hi Again Everyone,

Hope all is well. We have completed another water project at a rural school in a small village north of Siem Reap. Sva Houl school has 325 children and is located down a usual dusty, bumpy road. This was a much needed water project as not only did the school not have any water sources, but the entire village has hardly any usable wells.

This is another school that has great leadership and a committed team of teachers who really work hard to care and educate the children in their care.

As we are now into the hot season here with temperatures in the high 30's everyday, we know only too well how welcome a clean glass of water is. We ourselves are fortunate to have the luxury of being able to buy clean drinking water anytime we desire.

In the past, many children were plagued by illness due to water borne disease, missing many days of school. We can only imagine how difficult it must be for the children to not only deal with being ill, but to have to spend a long thirsty day at school after walking or cycling a fair distance to get there.

Sva Houl school and village now has access to this new water system that provides clean, pure water for the children and their families.

A big Thank You to Eric and Joann Byres for funding this great project in partnership with K.I.D.S.

All the best to you and yours,
Rick and Adrianne
