For the past several years CANISAR has organized capacity building deployments to help our international neighbours with some of their ongoing needs.

This October, CANISAR will be sending another team of volunteers to Cambodia to address water security and other pressing needs Like previous deployments, this one will focus on the families of Tonle Sap Lake as well as the Chres Orphanage.
Tonle Sap is a lake in central Cambodia. Many of the poorest families of the region are unable to afford the luxury of living on land. This has led to the creation of over 170 floating villages. Not being able to live on dry land is a harsh reality accepted by over one million people living on Tonle Sap. Houses in these floating villages are without basic sanitation. Residents are forced to release untreated human waste directly into their “fresh” water source. This water has become contaminated and is unfit for human consumption.

CANISAR’s goal to is to provide clean water solutions to the people living on Tonle Sap Lake, as well as those living near the Chres Orphanage. In addition to providing clean water solutions to the people of Tonle Sap Lake, other aspects of this humanitarian trip include: pump well construction, education and training, shelter repair and rehabilitation at an orphanage, and sponsorship of medical clinics.
Through fundraising, the team plans to support one village on Tonle Sap with each deployment and provide each family with a water filter designed to clean up to 4 million litres of water. By doing so CANISAR is giving families control over their own access to this basic resource.

With your help, we can make a positive lasting difference in the lives of many families. Please help support this deployment.
