AEON - UNICEF Safe Water Campaign

AEON - UNICEF Safe Water Campaign

In Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, where we have supported the construction of new schools, children miss school more often as they get older, as their parents ask them to do more chores, like fetching water. This is especially time-consuming because the children must travel long distances to rivers or ponds, due to the lack of public water supply. In addition, water from these sources is polluted, which is a major issue in terms of sanitation and health. Since 2010, AEON 1% Club Foundation has collaborated with the Japan Committee for UNICEF to conduct the Safe Water Campaign.
