Here we are, another summer.  Summer is a wonderful season; flowers, birds, young voices playing and chattering in the playgrounds. Yet, it is sometimes summer is a weary time if the person who does not have accessible, good, safe, refreshing water for drinking.

The challenges of available safe, clean water for drinking have increased.   Have you been thirsty yet this season, this summer, this day of the beginning of summer?  I have too.   Safe water is the answer.

SAFE W-A-T-E-R – ah how sweet and wonderful is safe water.  Safe water is free from microbes or chemicals that are harmful to our bodies.  Safe water is safe for children, for adults and for even animals.  Whereas clean water may look safe but may not be safe.  Clean water is what we wash our clothing in or put on our gardens and feed our chickens or livestock.

Can clean water be made into safe water?  Yes, specially made filters are used to filter water of the ever so small harmful microbes.  Many of us have the privilege of having ‘safe water from the tap’ because we live where safe water is provided by our community’s filtration systems.  However, safe water is not always available in many cities, towns, villages or for those who live in overcrowded areas or very rural areas.

Does it sound like the whole world needs safe water?   It does!   And MEDRIX continues to provide safe water filter systems to rural pre-schools and kindergartens in rural villages in Vietnam.  Are you thirsty yet?  You can be a solution to kids who are thirsty.  Donations are easy.  Click the ‘Donate now’ button and you too can be a hero for safe drinking water.   Be a partner in providing safe water to the children!  Donate today and give life safe water to children in rural Vietnam who are less privileged!

We thank you!

One Butterfly to Another:   Oh, Where, Oh, Where?” - “Let’s go!”

Oh, where or where is the pre-school?

I hear It’sdown the lane.

 

Oh, where or where are our friends?

I hear they’re at pre-school, down the lane.

 

Oh, where or where is the water so clear, they can take a cool safe sip?

I hear it’s at the pre-school, down the lane and with our friends!

 

“Oh, yes! Let’s go there; to the pre-school, down the lane with our friends, where there’s clean, clear water so the kids can be strong and healthy”.

Oh yes! There we can play! There we can dance! There we can drink safe clean water! Let’s go!

And let’s thank our friends from GlobalGiving too!

 

Oh yes!” Thank you Friends!   Thank you very much!   

And away we go to the pre-school, down the lane, to see our friends who drink clean, clear, safe water from MEDRIX.”

Thank you, Friends!

These smiling faces are beginning to go back to school.  Boy are they happy!  And like many schools in the United States, Covid has once again affected community education.   And with their return to pre-schools and kindergarten children will have safe water in their schools, thanks to our donors like you.  

MEDRIX provides water treatment systems that filter by extremely small filters called “nano microfilters”.  Water filtered through these systems produces clear and safe drinking water for these rural schools.

There is hope on the horizon for these children and all the children, as we globally navigate through this pandemic.  We will develop a new understanding about ourselves, our human needs for friendships and caring about each-other.   Today you can make a significant impact on the health and the learning environment for children by contributing to MEDRIX’s Safe Water Projects.  The children who live  in the rural areas of Central Vietnam will  thank you!

Safe water – clean water, what is the big deal? 

A few years ago people would ask such questions.  Yet today no matter where you live, you have a keen understanding of the need of safe water for drinking.  The world is experiencing a great amount of heat.  The heat is parching our lands and our water systems beyond what is usual even for arid’ locations.  This is a fact whether recognized or scoffed.  Lack of safe drinking water is changing the way countries are looking at their futures.

Speaking of futures: it did not take these preschoolers long to know they LOVED safe water!  It quenched their thirst and feed their bodies. And it tasted good!      

MEDRIX loves working for and with the preschoolers in the rural districts of Vietnam to provide them with life saving water systems.  And, MEDRIX is proud to partner with the Center for Disease Control in Central Vietnam.  They are trusted partners in providing safe micro-filtration systems and good training for the teachers who monitor these sweet kids daily.  MEDRIX supplies the “LifeWater” systems  to  areas where pipped safe water is not available.  

We are only successful in providing these safe water systems because of persons like yourself also understand the need safe water and help us provide sustainable systems to rural districts in Vietnam.   

Thank you for giving little boys and girls a chance to grow and thrive because they have safe water.  Enjoy the picture!  They enjoy the water every day!

Wow!  What a year! Joy is present!  

Life for many has been turned upside down!  Global weather changes have resulted in significant flooding, causing crop devastation, loss of income, and loss of homes over many regions of the world.  This has also been the reality in Vietnam.  Plus, we have not been able to forget or get away from the global pandemic of Covid-19!  

Yet, the good news is that life goes on and joy is present.   In the mountainous regions of Vietnam one can hear the laughter of children once again playing in the paths that meander through their villages.   For now, the schools have closed due to the pandemic, but they will soon open again.  And along with the pre-schools and kindergarten reopening, MEDRIX will be there to deliver new and the revitalized “Safe Water Systems”.

Can you hear them now?  The children laughing as they turn the lever that allows the water to be processed through the microbial filters, releasing the sound of the water softly filling their cups and as the sweet taste of SAFE WATER touches their lips.  Ah, the refreshment of water…not just any water, but it is SAFE WATER!   Thank you for being a part of MEDRIX’s life sustaining project – Safe Water for children.    I can hear their laughter and their polite voices saying-   “Cam n rât nhieu”.  “Thank you very much!”
