We have just received an update on our work in Cambodia from our FY11/12 implementation partner Oxfam Australia. Below is an overview of the main achievements. We are very proud to say there are many!

The contribution of The One Foundation Australia has benefited 20 villages in Takeo province and 51 villages in Kratie province in rural Cambodia. The total number of beneficiaries from the programme is 64,000.

A HUGE SHOUT OUT to everyone who made this possible:

  • All those shoppers who have bought a bottle of One Water, whether that is from Woolworths or your favourite local shop or coffee shop
