Rotary project making progress on wells in Cambodia

Bill Taylor of the Edmonds-based SE Asia Foundation shared these photos of his trip to Cambodia, where he was able to see the progress on a project funded by a $98,000 Rotary Global Grant.

The project is providing 50 deep-bore, fresh-water wells for five remote villages, Taylor said, adding that the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Club “was a significant participant.”

Here, from Taylor, is a brief pictorial report of what is being accomplished:

Here we are, drilling a well…

Here’s a finished well to serve 15 families…

The Rotary sign…

So now we have this…

And no longer need to use this…

  1. Bill is a longtime Edmonds resident and Rotarian who goes to SE Asia on donated airmiles and speaks the language and has close friendships with many locals. We in Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Club are very proud that we could use some of your donated dollars to help sustainable projects halfway around the world. Thank you when you donate to Rotary, for helping kids here in town and also kids in poor countries! Enjoy the sunny weekend! Hugs, Nancy Crim 34 years in Rotary International

  2. Bill is an inspiration because he listens to what the local communities need and he is driven by their needs.

    Our Rotary Club of Chadstone East Malvern in Melbourne Australia is enormously excited to stand alongside Rotary Club of Edmonds Daybreakers and the Rotary Foundation that facilitates this project and many other community enhancing projects around the globe
