Clear Cambodia

Clear Cambodia is a local Cambodian Christian non-governmental organization focusing on water and sanitation through the use of BioSand filters. Beginning in 1999, Clear Cambodia implemented it’s water filtration program under Hagar International. After localizing in 2010, Clear Cambodia has focused on it’s mission to help rural Cambodians sustainably improve their health through increased access to clean potable water, sanitation facilities, and a healthy environment. All work is done in collaboration with community leaders and local authorities. 

 

Clear Cambodia has strong expertise in the Biosand Filter (BSF) technology and the community health education components necessary to make the technology successful. Through Clear Cambodia’s Water Filter and Sanitation Program, the BSF technology is leveraged to provide a sustainable and low cost source of potable water to areas of Cambodia in which access to safe water had previously been extremely limited.

 

To date, Clear Cambodia and its predecessor Hagar Water Filter Program, has implemented over 103,000 BioSand filters that impact an estimated 618,000 beneficiaries in rural areas. 

Clear Cambodia is currently active in six provinces, Kompong Chhnang, Pursat, Battambang, Kompong Thom, Prey Veng and Svay Rieng.

 

As a testament to the successful implementation of the Water Filter and Sanitation Program, Clear Cambodia is actively welcomed by local governmental authorities to work in their communities. More than 30,000 requests each year are received from households that wish to participate in the Water Filter and Sanitation Program.
