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

Water purifier systems will be installed in 2 local schools in VL Province & there are more than 500 children benefitted in this project. They can access clean & safe water to drink & wash hands in schools which improve personal hygiene and prevent hygiene-related diseases. The service life of a water purifier system is normally 2-3 years. Addressing water needs of children will be our effort to improve living conditions, and we will continue our work with your support to children in Vietnam.

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.
