Our mission is simple: To change the lives of vulnerable children in impoverished urban areas by providing clean, safe drinking water to orphanages, street shelters, rescue homes, schools and children's hospitals. Safe drinking water is the most essential life-sustaining requirement. There is no substitute - not at any price. In this day and age, in such a plentiful world, clean water should no longer be the privilege of some, but the basic right of every child.

2011 June Update

The "Clean Water to Children's Hospital Project" will commence once 50% of project funding has been raised -- until that time, it remains in the planning phase.  A Child's Right stands ready to install the water purification systems just as soon as half the funds have been raised for this project.

This project is designed to assure safe drinking water in five children's hospitals.  Water purification systems will be installed (and monitored for quality for the first ten years) for $25,000 ($5,000 per hospital).

Feb 2011 update

While our Clean Water for Orphans Project in China is hitting the halfway mark, we have some of our attention on schools/clinics for disabled children. Through a recent grant for Guangdong Province, we are undertaking our first pilot project targeting severely disabled children in need of clean water.

The Clean Water to Children's Hospital Project continues in the planning phase. Upon reaching 50% of our funding goal we will undertake our first round of installations and provide photo, video, GPS, and testimonials from children and staff at the hospitals upon completion. The additional hospitals will be served upon reaching 100% of our goal.

Until then, we thank the Global Giving supporters and are happy to answer any questions directly if there are any.

Status Update

To all of our donors,
 
THANK YOU for your generous support! 

We wanted to update you on our project activities and some of the challenges we're facing.  Due to difficulties working in Qinghai post-earthquake our agency, in full partnership with and acknowledgment from the Chinese government, we have decided that our relief work in Yushu and Xining displacement camps should come to a halt. This project, partially supported by GlobalGiving funding (China Earthquake clean water relief project #5457), was a tough one from the onset due to a myriad of social, geographic, and climate issues. In full recognition of these challenges, the Chinese government has suggested we train our sights on other collaborative relief work in China.

Our organization has thus diverted our partnered relief projects in China toward flood affected areas in Jilin Province. The water systems and equipment initially slated for Qinghai were rerouted to Jilin and, working with the provincial Civil Affairs Bureau and China Association of Social work, we installed our projects in three orphanages (listed below). Aside from the small number of children at each orphanage, the facility also serves hundreds more flood-displaced families.

A. Jilin City Social Welfare Institute, 106 children.
B. Jilin City Changyi District Huapichang Social Welfare Center, 60 children
C. Jilin City Longtan District Wulajiezhen Social Welfare Center, 100 children.

We appreciate your donation and want to make sure it used in the way you would like it to be used.  Since this relief work is coming to an end, we will retire this project and apply any unspent funds for our other project on GlobalGiving - Bright Clean Water to Children's Hospitals in China (www.globalgiving.org/2586 <http://www.globalgiving.org/2586> ). If you would rather these funds be used for another project on GlobalGiving please let us know by November 30.
 
If you have any concerns about this feel free to contact me at eric@achildsright.org or GlobalGiving at projecthelp@globalgiving.org.
 
Thank you again for your support!
