Medical Solutions and Planet Water

Did you know?

  • One in eight people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water.
  • Fifty-percent of hospital beds on Earth are occupied by people with easily preventable waterborne diseases.
  • 4000 children die every day from water related illnesses.
  • Women and children spend hours a day collecting water, which takes away vital educational opportunities.

We didn’t either, but once we learned this it inspired us to do something to truly help others this Christmas season.

So we partnered with the Planet Water Foundation to help bring fresh, clean water to the people living in the village of Phnov, located in the Tasom Commune, Angkor Chum District of Siem Reap, Cambodia. This gift was given on behalf of our travelers and client hospitals.

Planet Water helps villages without clean drinking water by building AquaTowers that filter and clean their water. To learn more about how this system works and is giving the hope of a better life to thousands visit Planet Water.

The tower wil be built in 2012 and we will post updates on its progress throughout the year. Click here to learn more about the Phnov Community.
