Water & Sanitation

Water and Sanitation

  • Water Supply station
    4863 residents (in Mongolia and Swaziland)
  • Environment and hygiene education program
    578 participants (Vietnam)

Global warming is getting more serious. It drives higher temperatures and droughts around the world. More than 1 in 4 deaths of children under 5 years of age are attributable to unhealthy environments. According to the report of WHO, 361,000 children under age 5 died due to diarrhea every year as a result of poor access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene.

Water Supply facilities

Since 2004, TFCF Mongolia has established water supply facilities through Taiwanese donations. In order to provide improved, sustainable drinking water services, TFCF has transferred the water supply ownership to local governments as a donation, and kept improving children’s living condition with safe water. In 2016, TFCF Swaziland finished establishing water supply facilities, including tanks and solar water pumping stations in 14 communities. Ejubukweni residents enjoy access to clean water and are glad to have safe and clean water for children without miles to walk.

Environmental Health Education 

In a similar situation, Vietnam also has problems with water. Although Vietnam has improved its water supply situation in the past few decades, people are unable to access to clean water and sanitation for both urban and rural population, especially in Mekong Delta of southern Vietnam, Vinh Long Province. It is essential to have safe water to keep kids healthy. In addition to provide the water resource, TFCF Vietnam also provided Environmental Health Education Services, First Aid Training Program, Personal Health Care, and offered basic commodities or essential nutrition to needy children and families.

It is always our goal to help those children who can live in an environment with clean water. Therefore, we provided services, such as environmental education and personal health care, held first aid training course, offered livelihood supplies or nutrition and helped improve children’s hygiene and their environmental condition. We hope to improve the personal hygiene and cleanliness of all assisted children.
