“Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.”
John 4:13-14 ESV
Last Year LifeTotes partnered with a community in a Dump Site village just outside of Phnom Pehn, Cambodia to build a school for their children. A dump site village is essentially a group of people who live on the edge of a landfill and sift through the rubbish to find anything of value they can sell to support themselves. Typically these villages do not have schools, perpetuating this cycle of poverty and absence of opportunity. This school building has grown into so much more than a place for education. It now functions as a community center where the people gather to discuss the village matters and needs.
One hope for the village has been a clean water source that will allow them to practice proper hygiene as well as have clean drinking water that is not filled with contaminants from the landfill runoff.
LifeTotes connected with Neverthirst, an organization founded in Birmingham, AL, who provides clean water solutions throughout Southeast Asia. During our trip to Cambodia this past summer, Neverthirst sent a team to meet us at the dumpsite village to assess the water needs. We are so excited to announce that this organization has now provided clean water to our dumpsite community in the form of biosand filters to each household!
During this Christmas season, LifeTotes will be partnered with Neverthirst. When you purchase a LifeTotes product during November and December, you will be supporting our mission as well as this amazing cause!
