Teens create charity, raise nearly $300K to improve drinking water in Cambodia
Four teenagers from the Bellport area are helping change the lives of the people living in Cambodia.
The teens formed an organization called "Four Girls for Families" more than six years ago. Since then, they have raised nearly $300,000 for the charity.
In the beginning, the girls delivered water filters to families in Cambodia because the drinking water there is very poor. Each year they have done more and more to help the people living there.
"Since then we've kind of branched out and realized we should also provide mosquito nets and in-ground wells," says Eloise Kocay. "Our most recent project has been building a 500-student school."
