WATER FOR ALL, BUT NOT FOR FREE by Fardah Assegaf


     Phnom Penh, Feb 25, 2003 (ANTARA) - Mrs Lan Tang Hok, 43, can start saving money to buy more food for her seven children since piped water from the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority (PWSA) has reached her home.         Lan Tang Hok, who lives in the Pra You Vong slum area in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, used to pay 1,000 riels a day for water she bought from private water vendors.         Nowadays, she spends only about 5,000 riels per month for the water supplied by the PWSA, since the water authority has expanded its services to the poor neighborhood.
