Community Help Given Local Citizens by CSHD and EOD Team #1

Earlier this year, CSHD Team #1 was working in the minefield in Steung Thmey Village, Bramaoy Commune, Veal Veng District of Pursat Province. There the team saw the problems and difficulties faced by the local citizens. The province is suffering from a shortage of drinking water. They also are short on labor. So, during their spare time, members of Team #1 helped these people in need who were harvesting corn near they minefield. They helped to husk the dried corn as well as transport and distribute water to these people. Examples of additional things the members of CSHD do to help their fellow Cambodian citizens!
