Vietnam Foundation is funding a highly practical program to distribute rain water harvesting vats in remote areas of Vietnam to improve accessibility to clean water and improve basic sanitation.
Vietnam Foundation also promotes Environmental Sustainability in rural Vietnam, through our Photo-Voltaic solar power systems program for health centres and schools in communities not connected to the power grid, in collaboration with Australian Businesses and local partners.
Rain Water Harvesting Program
Many remote rural areas of Vietnam lack clean water for basic daily use such as drinking, cooking, washing and personal hygiene. This is one of the greatest causes of poor health and preventable diseases in these communities.
Vietnam Foundation partnered up with the local Charity Group Hiểu Và Thương (Understanding and Love) to source and distribute hundreds of 1000-litre vats to poor villagers in these areas, at less than AUD 50 each including transport and delivery.
Your tax deductible monthly donation of $100 will greatly improve the health and well-being of 24 families a year, as well as promoting rain water harvesting in remote rural areas of Vietnam.
Solar PV Systems Program
Bình Hòa Nam village in Long An Province had only one Health Centre providing basic health care for the local population, including basic and emergency medical treatment, and birth delivery.
As the village was not connected to the electric grid, Vietnam Foundation partnered up with BP Solar (Australia) and local technicians to install a solar PV electric system, including solar panels, inverter, batteries, and basic lighting and power to the examination room, birth delivery room, patients’ room, and staff office.
