Lien AID and BBR Holdings hand over three Cambodian CWEs to their communities
In mid-March, Lien AID and a local public-listed engineering and construction firm BBR Holdings (Singapore) Limited, officially handed over three Community Water Enterprises (CWEs) and water treatment systems to the communes of Koah Dach, Peam Raing, and Kport Ateav in the Kandal province, Cambodia.
Identified by the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD) as one of seven provinces in Cambodia with the highest arsenic levels in the primary water source of ground water, Kandal has areas that are still in need of a sustainable source of safe drinking water.
In their first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, BBR Holdings partnered Lien AID in 2013 to develop a CWE at Koah Dach commune in Cambodia, and kindly donated US$30,000 to fund this project.
In addition to the CWE project, BBR Holding’s CSR outreach team, BBR CAREs, further donated sports equipment and learning aid tools to the nearby Ronas Primary School, and carried out oral hygiene lessons with the students, and played sports and games with them.
