AST supports Planet Water Foundation, bringing safe, clean water to 24 communities in Cambodia

Applied Satellite Technology Ltd (AST), Inmarsat and Cobham SATCOM enable Planet Water Foundation to share their latest initiative, Project 24, with the world.  

Project 24 aims to build 24 AquaTowers in 24 communities in just 24 hours to provide clean, safe water to over 24,000 people in Cambodia on World Water Day, Sunday 22 March.  Together with partners AST and Cobham SATCOM, Inmarsat is helping Planet Water Foundation share the Project 24 story with the rest of the world in real-time by its BGAN HDR service to stream live video of the towers being erected onto their website, and with Internet connectivity to update followers through their social media channels. 

Greg Ewert, President, Inmarsat Enterprise said “Inmarsat is extremely proud to support Planet Water Foundation and its Project 24 initiative.  We hope this live footage will help generate awareness of the incredible gift Planet Water Foundation will give to the communities of Cambodia of providing safe and clean water, which most of us take for granted.”

Mark Steele, Founder & CEO, Planet Water Foundation said “Planet Water Foundation is grateful to have the support of Inmarsat on Project 24. Inmarsat’s network will enable us to stream footage live from Project 24 enabling all stakeholders to see, first hand, the impact we are making together in helping 24,000 people across 24 communicates gain access to clean, safe water for the very first time!”
“We are very excited to help bring Project 24 to life for a global audience” said Nada El Marji, Director, NGO Business states. “By enabling live footage of Project 24, Planet Water can let the world see the crucial aid work being done to help end water poverty, one community at a time.”

Visit the Project 24 live stream on 22 March to see the 24 AquaTowers as they are being built and the life-changing impact they will have for the people of Cambodia.
