In Gia Canh, Đồng Nai province, a water treatment station for 200 persons was built, in particular for the poor, and wells with water reservoirs were drilled.
Our friend the monk Minh has installed all the material together with a friend for a reservoir of 2.000 liters. We have elevated the tank of 2 000 litres in order to allow a faster distribution of the water. The water supplied is of an excellent quality and even better than some water that is sold commercially.
In December 2011 a well with a water reservoir were built. The first station built on the market place was not enough to meet the demand of the whole population. Till today (March 2012) 90 m3 have been distributed. Long queues wait for the opening of the station every morning from 5 to 8 a.m. and evening from 5 to 7 p.m.
Half March 2012 the construction of the second water treatment station started and will be installed in the courtyard of the primary school annex kindergarten for about 400 children adjacent to the People’s Committee. A distribution point, accessible from the main street is also foreseen for the inhabitants of the neighbouring areas (up to 5 km away).
In order to pay the person in charge of the station and to cover maintenance, the population is asked to pay 2.000VND (8 eurocent per container of 20 litres) for water of excellent quality.
