Apologies for any confusion with the previous post, which was intended to give a general overview of our current progress in China.
Presently, A Child's Right is working with the China Association of Social Workers, a sub-branch of the Ministry of Civil Affairs, to locate appropriate sites for our Clean Water for Hospitals project with Global Giving.
After compilation of at least 10 sites, we work with our China staff and the national government to test the water, inspect the sites, work with their administration and with the local government to ensure these sites are 1) in need of clean water 2) provide pediatric care for children as their primary mission 3) will provide the water free of charge to the children under their care and 4) have the necessary infrastructural items needed to effectively run our water systems (water pressure and electricity).
Our primary operations in China presently consist of more than 150 clean water installations per year in China’s orphanages. Late 2009 and early 2010 will see us expanding our reach to assist both hospitals and poor schools through provision sof clean and safe water. We have worked in the largest pediatric hospitals in both Nepal and Cambodia, but the Global Giving project will be our first in to large hospitals in China. We look forward to this partnership and any questions from potential supporters.
