ABA​ Bank,​ member​ of​ the​ National​ Bank​ of​ Canada​ Group,​ sponsored​ the​ construction​ of​ ten​ underground​ water​ wells,​ providing​ clean​ water​ to​ rural​ communities​ of​ Kampong​ Cham​ and​ Tboung​ Khmum​ provinces.

Managed​ under​ Clean​ Water​ Project​ of​ CBN​ Cambodia,​ a​ registered​ international​ non-profit​ organization,​ ABA​ Bank’s​ donation​ contributes​ to​ providing​ distant​ villagers​ an​ access​ to​ reliable​ source​ of​ clean​ safe​ water​ for​ their​ daily​ consumption.​ The​ villagers​ also​ received​ an​ educational​ training​ on​ hygiene​ to​ protect​ themselves​ from​ various​ diseases​ in​ everyday​ life.

Commenting​ on​ the​ occasion,​ Igor​ Zimarev,​ Head​ of​ Marketing​ in​ ABA​ said,​ “This​ year,​ the​ country​ witnessed​ severe​ drought​ with​ certain​ parts​ of​ the​ country​ experiencing​ lack​ of​ drinking​ water.​ Having​ observed​ that,​ we​ decided​ to​ help​ building​ water​ wells​ for​ the​ villagers​ in​ several​ provinces.”​

“What​ is​ more,​ disregarding​ the​ season​ or​ the​ amount​ of​ rain,​ it​ is​ always​ better​ and​ healthier​ to​ drink​ water​ that​ is​ not​ contaminated​ and​ that​ is​ purified​ enough​ for​ normal​ consumption.​ By​ participating​ in​ this​ project,​ we​ at​ ABA​ wanted​ to​ make​ real​ contribution​ to​ local​ communities​ as​ stated​ in​ our​ core​ values.​ We​ hope​ that​ it​ will​ help​ them​ live​ a​ healthier​ life,​ using​ water​ wisely​ for​ their​ personal​ needs​ and​ home​ agriculture,”​ added​ Mr​ Zimarev.

CBN​ Cambodia​ have​ delivered​ humanitarian​ aids​ in​ various​ provinces​ since​ 1998.​ Clean​ Water​ Project​ is​ one​ among​ the​ organization’s​ activities,​ aiming​ to​ save​ people​ from​ diseases​ that​ are​ caused​ from​ using​ contaminated​ water.

“Providing​ clean​ water​ resource​ is​ to​ save​ lives,”​ said​ Nhean​ Piseth​ Oum,​ National​ Director​ of​ CBN​ Cambodia.​ “Our​ purpose​ is​ to​ see​ Cambodian​ people​ having​ enough​ clean​ water.​ Therefore,​ we​ are​ grateful​ and​ thankful​ to​ ABA​ for​ being​ a​ big​ part​ of​ our​ sponsorship​ and​ joining​ hands​ with​ us​ to​ provide​ the​ safe​ water​ resources​ to​ the​ people​ in​ need.”
