Thmar Puok Hospital Well Project – Cambodia

Thmar Puok, Banteay Meanchey, Cambodia

Community Description
Thmar Puok District town is located in the northwest Province of Banteay Meanchey 50 kilometers north of the Provincial Capital of Serei Sophon.

One of the biggest concerns for people in Thmar Puok is the shortage of water. In the dry season, sanitation decreases because of the lack of available water in the area.

The Thmar Puok District Referral Hospital is the biggest health facility within a 40-kilometer radius. It has two wells for use by the staff and patients, but neither of them is currently functioning.

Project Description
This project is to repair the two wells at the hospital.

The work will be performed by local technicians, and completed before the start of the rainy season.

Project Impact
The hospital serves both the Thmar Puok and Sway Chek districts, with a combined population of 111,197 people who will benefit from the project. There are 147 villages within these districts. There are 49 staff members within the hospital.
