On November 1, 2012 we completed our 500th active installation of clean water systems in China. The 500th installation was at Ganjiaping Elementary School located in Badong County, Hubei Prefecture, China. This school has 310 students and 16 staff.
Help us get to 503!
This project is almost completely funded, and very shortly we will begin installation in three pediatric hospitals in China. Imagine taking your sick or injured child to a hospital that is functioning without clean water! This should not be so, and it is a simple problem to fix!
With your help, we will install water purifications systems and drinking & hand washing stations at three more sites, and we will provide 10 years of spare parts, maintenance, training, and support, positioning each site to take ownership of its own system by year 11.
Become a recurring donor today and GlobalGiving will match your first donation (hurry while matching funds last)!!
We would never have been able to achieve these results in China without the dedication, commitment, perseverance, and grit of a lot of folks. We are so proud of our entire China team, but we also owe a lot to the China Association of Social Workers and to the China Charity Federation for their belief in us when we were a very small and unknown player in the water sector.
But first and foremost, we were able to reach this goal because of supporters like you. Today, thousands of children in China and over 225,000 children in cities and towns around the world are enjoying safe, clean water.
