Activity Report

Pumps have been repaired. It makes our daily work easier.

Jun 6, 2017

There are 8 Hand Pumps for pumping up water of Pond and/or groundwater at villages of Battambang Province, Cambodia where Good Earth Japan (GEJ) support farmers who live on post landmine field there.
Those pumps had been installed in 2007 or 2008 when GEJ just started the support activities in Cambodia.
Since then, they had been maintained and repaired sometimes for use. However, because of the wear of valves and/or broken handles etc., the most of Pumps have been not in use for these years, and farmers and school directors have been asking the repair.
For the area, it is essential to have Pond for the drought but the Pump is also important for drawing up the water.
This time, GEJ ordered to repair 7 Pumps either to replace or repair. At the same time, GEJ instructed farmers to improve their handling method of them.

GEJ support farmers who live on the post landmine field to become independent through agriculture training, improving living environment and infrastructure.
