Handover of water treatment systems to households in need in Central Vietnam
Providing clean drinking water is a priority as authorities respond to the devastating storms and flooding that continue to impact Central Vietnam. This week, #Aus4Innovation is proud to announce that A$20,000 will be redirected to provide water treatment systems to communities in need. Thanks to the UTS Rapido Vietnam team (UTS: University of Technology Sydney, VNU-UET and all of their local partners) who have responded so rapidly to solve an urgent problem. Their simple water filter designs, developed collaboratively with disaster management authorities and the Song Foundation (Nha Chong Lu), will ensure 70 households and one childcare centre in three provinces (Quang Binh, Quang Tri and Ha Tinh) have safe, reliable supplies of water to drink.
