Fresh Water Shower and Latrine Project
  In central Vietnam, about 50 km northwest of the old imperial city of Hue, lies the mountainous district of A Luoi. Nearly hidden among the remote hills and valleys and populated with a rich ethnic mix of TaOi, KaTu and Paco, is the tiny village of Hong Ha.

With a population of 1,800 people spread among 450 households, most of the families in Hong Ha are lacking hygienic latrines. A long-term challenge for local authorities, due to the poor economic conditions and ready access to fresh water, has been a safe and reliable sanitation system.

Most families use makeshift, homemade latrines which are made of temporary materials and are often damaged by the harsh weather extremes. Some villagers have simple systems where raw sewage flows directly into rivers and streams. This practice is unsafe and has affected the environment and the health of the local population.

In a recent latest survey, we found that most of local people are eager to have a fresh water shower system and hygienic latrine facilities but simply do not have enough money to build one.

We ask that you consider helping us fund this project that will bring dignity, safety and a healthier life to the people of Hong Ha.
