Challenge

The shortage of safe water is a big issue in Vinh Long (VL) Province. Most of families don't have tap water and river is the major water resource in daily life for drinking, showering and cleaning etc. Even boiling or spraying chemistry medicine into water, it's still not safe enough because of the pollution. The dangers of unpurified water are well known to cause a wide range health problems, such as personal hygiene, skin disease, and stomachache.

Solution

At the beginning, we planned to install two water purifier systems in schools and we did successfully in 2019. We'll continue maintaining systems to keep providing clean & safe water for schoolchildren. In addition, we will help connect tap water for 40 families at least & install water tanks to purify river water for 50 families in An Binh & Dong Phu Commune. We hope that they can access clean & safe water to drink & wash hands and improve personal hygiene and prevent hygiene-related diseases.

Long-Term Impact

As we know that the human right to water and to sanitation constitutes the right of every individual, without discrimination, to sufficient, safe, acceptable, accessible and affordable water and sanitation for personal use. Through our project, it would bring positive changes for assisted children and families including drinking clean water, improving personal hygiene and preventing from hygiene-related diseases.
