USAID Brings Clean Water to a Local Community in Vietnam’s Thanh Hoa Province

Friday, October 4, 2019

Even though water pollution is a common and serious problem in Vietnam, solutions for water pollution remain scattered, small-scale, and largely ineffective. Hence, USAID’s Vietnam Local Works for Environmental Health activity tackles emerging water and health challenges in Vietnam by leveraging partnerships and mobilizing local resources to improve access to clean water and sanitation. On September 26, USAID and Thanh Hoa province organized an event to launch a community clean water supply system to Chue Cau village in Thanh Hoa province’s Ha Lam commune. This is the fifth small-scale water supply system in the commune supported by the USAID’s Vietnam Local Works for Environmental Health activity.

So What? These small-scale water supply systems have brought clean water to nearly 700 students and school staff as well as nearly 110 households in Ha Lam commune, which helps improve community health and reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases.
