K.I.D.S. Update - The Gift of "tuk sa at" (beautiful water)

Jan 18, 2016

Dear Friends,

Yesterday we went out to Damnakslan Elementary School north of Siem Reap to meet the school principal, teachers, village chief, head monk from the local pagoda and members of the education committee for the school. The purpose of this visit was to celebrate the completion of the latest K.I.D.S water project and to turn on the pumps and teach the children how to use the taps as they had not seen running tap water before.

After our meeting with the school and community members we took a couple of the classes and gave them some instructions and turned them loose at the taps. During these moments seeing children, who for the first time in their lives, have access to unlimited clean, pure drinking water is hard to put into words. Perhaps we will defer to the words spoken to us by the school principal.

"We would like to thank K.I.DS, Healthy Role Models and everyone else involved for supporting our school with this gift of "tuk sa at" (beautiful water).  Our children here at the school were always sick with stomach aches and diarrhoea... their illness ends as of this moment."

We too would also like to thank Healthy Role Models of Nanaimo founded and operated by ​Sarah and David Gilks and their terrific team of 
​participants who volunteered​ their time and talents to​ fundraise​ for this specific project. The water system has vastly improved the health of over 500 school children and their families. The children at school will be able to drink as much as they want during the day and the community will also be able to access this clean water for their families.


Hope your 2016 is off to a great start.... like the chidren at Damnakslan School.


All the best to you and yours,
Rick and Adrianne
