Ice Men

Less than 25 % of Cambodian households have access to electricity.

Most of those who do live in Urban areas (54% in the cities have power to their homes).

But many with electricity don’t have refrigerators, and if they did couldn’t afford to run them anyway. (electricity is very expensive in Cambodia).

So blocks of ice it is. This ice is being delivered to a small store and will be used to keep drinks cold. (The drinks are packed around it, the ice doesn’t go into the drinks for those wondering about the health aspect)
