Planet Water Project 24 Update

Planet Water Medical Solutions Tower

Lek Seihak, Planet Water’s Program Manager for Cambodia, leads the implementation of education programming. Here he teaches children and teachers about the water system.

Last month we let you know about Medical Solutions’ sponsorship of Planet Water Foundation’s Project 24 — a celebration of World Water Day. You can revisit that blog here to get the full story about Planet Water Foundation’s efforts to erect 24 clean water filtration systems in 24 impoverished communities in just 24 hours.

We can happily report that Project 24 was a great success in bringing clean water to so many folks in need! As nurses know, clean water goes a very long way in terms of preventing and treating serious waterborne diseases and other health issues caused or exacerbated by unsanitary water.

The Medical Solutions-sponsored clean water filtration went up Sunday, March 22nd, at 2 p.m. EST, at the Watslatromchey Primary School in the Cambodian Village of Preah Kau.

“The education program has now been implemented at the school,” says Carolina Bravo, Manager of Partnership Development for Planet Water.  “Our team will return to the site every four months over the course of the next five years to implement our sustainability program and to check the system to ensure everything is functioning correctly.”

Planet Water shared these great photos of Preah Kau’s schoolchildren learning about and enjoying their new, clean water source.

You can learn more and view the video of the tower installation at the Medical Solutions’ Project 24 microsite. You can also still donate there, if you choose. Project 24 was a success, but there is still a lot more to be done in ensuring clean water and all of the health benefits it brings for everyone across the globe.
