At the beginning of this year, with support from the Vibrant Village Foundation, Yahoo! and Mrs. Mai Dolch, VNHelp completed the construction of the water filtration plant and the distribution system in Hà Vinh Village, Ha Trung District, Thanh Hóa Province. The beneficiaries are 1,600 households in the village (about 7,000+ people) . VNHelp’s Executive Director, Thu Do, attended the opening ceremony of the filtration plant and visited some of the beneficiaries. Please view some video excerpts from her interviews of villagers about the new, clean water supply.

VNHELP’s Executive Director, Thu Do, attended the opening ceremony of the water filtration plant in Ha Vinh Village, Ha Trung District, Thanh Hoa Province on Friday, Feb 26, 2016. Thu also visited many beneficiary’s homes to see people enjoyed the crystal clear water right at their home. The entire water system includes wells, many function tanks, water tower, machine room, main pipeline network, and mini-pipelines that connect more than a thousand families to clean water.
This project was made possible with the combined grants from Yahoo, Vibrant Village Foundation and Mrs. Mai Dolch.

Clean Water Comes to Quang Ngai

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

March 22 is World Water Day! What better way to celebrate one of Earth’s most precious resources than to share with you its impact in VNHELP’s most recently completed water project?

With support from our partners and community, VNHELP brought clean water to 37 different schools in Quang Ngai province. Many schools in Vietnam lack access to a clean water source, which means students either have to bring their own water to school or drink unsanitized water from a tap. If there’s no tap, or if a student forgot to bring his water bottle to school, there’d be nothing to drink. Can you imagine how difficult it must be to go a whole day at school without a drop to drink? Thankfully, students at these schools no longer have to imagine such a situation. UV filtration systems were installed in the schools, and a faculty member at each of the school was trained on how to maintain the system.

To make this project even more meaningful, there was also a water, sanitation, and hygiene campaign to create better health awareness among children, teachers, and their families. Check out a slide show of the project below!
