Saelig Clean Water Project

Clean Water Donation - Contribution Match
Clean Water ProjectWhen I was in Southeast Asia in 2011, I discovered for myself the tremendous impact that clean water has on a community.  It reduces disease, promotes healthy bodies, and provides the means for families to become self-sufficient by growing their own gardens and caring for their own animals. Clean water is absolutely vital and we here in the West often take it for granted.  The average cost of a rural well is $4,800. Each well provides water for 1,000 people or more. This means that a child can receive a lifetime of clean water for as little as $4.80.

So, Saelig is humbly offering the opportunity for anyone who would like to partner with us to provide clean water in Cambodia.  This is so important to us here at Saelig that we will match your contribution dollar for dollar up to the entire cost of a rural well! Thank you for considering a small donation to make a difference for less than a cup of coffee!   Here is a short video.

The organization we are partnering with is Life Outreach International.  We have funded one well already and are working on our second one!
