Profile: Sopheak says let us manage water wisely

Sopheak Kanika Nguon
Program Assistant, LWF/DWS Cambodia

Sopheak is a polio victim; she uses crutches to travel from one place to another. However, her condition did not discourage her from joining this consultation and to air her call for the wise use of water. 'I would like to call all women around the world. Let us work together to manage water wisely. Let us also include those disabled and vulnerable women in the discussion about water issues.'

'This is my first time to be with people from other nations and I am so excited about this. Now I know more about water,' says Sopheak.

Sopheak shared that she learned that water, a gift from God, is important to our life. Without water we cannot live. 'I also learned about different Asian stories and cultural practices about water.'
