“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” Galatians 6:9

Two decades of civil war and genocide continue to leave a mark on Cambodia, which struggles to overcome a crippled economy and dependency on foreign aid.  Less than 40% of those living in rural areas have access to clean water and have limited basic health and hygiene education.  This has led to disease, malnutrition, inability to work and so and increased poverty.

Our work

Since 2002, Rope has been supporting our partners Cambodia Global Action – Community Health Education (CGA-CHE) to deliver a holistic programme to remote village communities in Cambodia. 

This project not only provides water, health and hygiene programmes but also the message of Christ as the living water.

Over 15 years, we have built 634 wells, providing fresh clean water for 4,303 families. 

It costs £150 to bring clean water to a village community

Our partners' holistic approach not only builds wells but also seeks to provide practical skills training in health and hygiene so that diseases such as typhoid, diarrhoea and liver disease can be avoided.  They help build latrines, introduce rubbish management systems and water filters.

Life in these communities is often very dark as many villagers are non-believers.  Villagers face domestic violence, child abuse and trafficking.

Our partners are passionate to see Christ's light to shine in these communities.  They offer classes to tackle social issues and inspire villagers to follow a life of prayer and faith.  They testify to seeing people’s hearts being opened, joy and peace discovered and lives transformed.
