Water pollution exacerbates suffering of Siem Reap villagers

(LANKAPUVATH | CAMBODIA) – At least 100 families in a flooded village in Peam Ta Uor, Siem Reap province, Cambodia, have started to worry about the scarcity of clean water.

Although water is in abundance in the village, residents complain that it is polluted by waste. For villagers, purchasing water is a necessity, as what adds to the suffering of the families is the lack of means to generate money and income.

Afflicted families have to scavenge for water from around their residence and boil it to cover their daily needs, as they have to wait for an opportunity to earn money to purchase it.
