02/11/2017: This morning, with the support of our partner “BASAID” we distributed polyethylene tanks for the storage of rainwater instead of the concrete ones we built in previous years. The local authorities of Xã Phước Vĩnh Tây village, Huyện Cần Giuộc, Long An and the Red Cross had invited the poor family beneficiaries for the official delivery of these donations (families, Đoàn Văn Tuấn, Nguyễn Văn Xê, Trần Thị Phượng, Võ Thị Mai Mai, Thê Thị Thắm, Võ Văn Nhôm, Võ Thị Chót).
Project objective: Participate in rural community development in the poorest regions by involving local authorities. Sponsorship of the poor families of the hamlets of Cần Giuộc Province of Long An.
In this region, the drinking water supply network does not go to remote areas and it becomes very difficult to find fresh water because of the high salinity and pollution of the water of the rivers. Groundwater, during the dry season mises, the project is to install these tanks to collect rainwater.
The geographical and climatic conditions, the ignorance of the elementary rules of hygiene maintain infectious pathologies and the local populations do not always have a direct access to the healthcare and sometimes have to face precarious sanitary situations.
The implementation of these facilities has an immediate impact on the health of populations in terms of food safety (digestive diseases, liver and various parasitic diseases).
With our thanks to the donator.
