No, it’s not a trick question. Sen Sytha and her neighbors in Ou Kach village, Cambodia, faced water shortages each year when the stream that was their water source dried up. When CWS and a partner provided the materials and training they needed to build a seven-meter deep ring well, the families constructed the well that would change their lives. Now, in Sytha’s words, “we no longer worry about lack of water.”
