Important progress continues to be made at TreadRight’s water intervention project in Chray Village, Cambodia, delivered in partnership with Just a Drop, bringing clean, safe water and sanitation to 2,010 people, as well as conducting WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) training.
Since the last update from August of 2018, there has been great progress with the work in Chray village despite heavy rains, which meant that construction work took longer than expected.
Recent progress at Chray Village includes completion of the well and the latrine block at Kbal Kmoch Primary School; completion of 6 household latrines, with the families showing a high level of commitment to the building above the ground, which they are responsible for, with good quality and durable materials being used; the delivery of 70 more biosand filters to households; and training on operation and maintenance of biosand filters has been conducted.
While progress continues, there remains work to be done at the village, including water samples being taken from the well to make sure it provides safe water; the remaining 14 household latrines are 60-70% complete; the delivery of the final 30 biosand filters and training; and the latrine block at Sangke Thom Primary School needs to be completed.
Expectation is that the project will be completed in March 2019.
