The volunteers were inspired to raise awareness among the local community people about water and sanitation that they shared insights and knowledge along with the local authorities including the Deputy Municipal Governor, Commune Council and Village Chiefs in Battambang about daily hygiene and the benefits of using clean water. They also demonstrated the proper use of water filter to 20 families living in the project site. At the end of the program, the team donated 20 water filters to the 20 families.
