Availability of water is not a problem for Hanh and her family at their home in the south of Vietnam. They have a well in their garden and collect water as it falls during the monsoon periods. The big problem is safety. Her family is constantly ill with sickness and diarrhoea.
That’s about to change. We are involved in a project which will pipe drinking water directly to 25,000 homes and businesses in the Ba Ria Vung Tau province. The water is treated before distribution.
It’s one of three water supply projects we are working on which together will provide safe drinking water to half a million people in Vietnam. Very soon Hanh will have a plentiful supply of water directly into her home – one which no longer threatens the health of her family.
MR NGUYEN VAN TRI, DIRECTOR CERWASS:
“The implementation of the Ba Ria Vung Tau Rural Water Supply project plays a crucial role in our objective to supply clean water to 97% of the rural residents by the year 2020. It is an important and truly meaningful project which will contribute to the realisation of Vietnam’s rural clean water supply and sanitation strategy.”
