It shares international borders with Thailand and the Lao People's Democratic Republic on the West and the North, and the Social Republic of Viet Nam on the East and the Southeast. The country is bound on the Southeast by the Gulf of Thailand. The climate is generally described as tropical.

Make a difference

Help families in Cambodia living below the poverty line by donating a water filter (£40) which will provide 4-5 families with clean water for 15 years…

We get clean water in our houses at the turn of a tap - imagine life without clean water to drink, bathe in, flush the toilet with and cook with…. and having to go and collect it up from a well or river and carry it to your house. Clean water is essential for a healthy life allowing people to drink and bathe without fear of disease through poor sanitation and also enables them to irrigate and grow crops. What better lasting legacy and your name will go on the water filter too!
