EVENT DATE: Jul 06, 2011
I recently went down to the Mekong Delta back in March 201 to visit provinces such as Dong Thap, Vinh Long, Ben Tre, and Tra Vinh.
The water contamination in these provinces is really bad due to various conditions.
Locals depend on the water source to cook rice, drink, and other living requirements.
A local priest and his church were able to raise money in Dong Thap to fund for a water drilling system. He currently has a system to give clean water to 20,000 people around Dong Thap for 50 years.
We want to be able to raise money that will go into purchasing a water drilling system or water filter system for areas that need it such as Vinh Long, Ben Tre, Tra Vinh and Ca Mau.
Below are various press articles that highlights the urgency of this issue.
Please help in providing clean water to people along the Mekong Delta.
