Documentary film benefits society

Many Cambodians have experienced the problems cholera and diarrhoea can cause when people lack knowledge about clean water and hygiene.

A video clip, titled The Story of Cholera, delivers to people around the world an educational message to help them better understand sanitation, defecation, and boiled water.

The four minute, 29 second clip is a production by the Global Health Media Project. The animation talks about a cholera outbreak, which happens because the villagers defecate near the river. The villagers then use the polluted water without boiling it first.

The clip also shows a little boy whose father has got diarrhoea. The little boy listens to the doctor’s explanation of what caused the sickness and then runs across the village to inform the other villagers. Telling them to use clean water, to defecate far from the river and to wash their hands after defecating and before eating.

Khmer Media’s Facebook page posted the video getting around 400 likes. Bopea Vivatanak, commented, “This is the valuable documentary film and it benefits society and humanity.”

James Bino replied, “It is a good documentary film to educate and give knowledge to all people around the globe.”

Kakada Meas wrote, “Please help to share”, while Piseth An wrote, “We must watch and learn together to better sanitation.”

Many Facebook users have already watched the clip and received the message so that they can protect themselves and their families – and share the video’s message with others.
