Our Water Tanks for Rescue

A shocking drought is sweeping across Asia and governments desperate to help.We knew at Buddhist Library Cambodia Project the predecessor to YOUR AID, if we built tanks at all schools when the drought came, we would have a place to store water as well as harvest rain water.

As if our sisters and brothers didn’t have enough to worry about in Asia there is the horror of accumulated poison from the use of weedicides and Pesticides on rice crops.

In Sri Lanka alone thousands are dying of kidney disease with the government buying many dialysis machines in an attempt to try to fight against this silent but stealthy killer…. a 50 year problem.
