300 free water filters for needy people

21/09/2016
As many as 300 Karofi water filters were installed in areas where water sources are seriously polluted in Northern provinces.
The social activity is part of the “Devotion for Vietnam’s future” journey, co-held by the National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health (under Ministry of Health) and Karofi Vietnam JSC.
After one year of operation, about 15,000 students and 1,500 people have had an access to safe water. What is more, 25 kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in polluted areas, and 7 villages with a high rate of cancer patients have been installed in with safe water supply systems. Additionally, locals also received free health check-ups by medical staff from the Vietnam-Cuba hospital.
The mounted filters will be periodically maintained by technicians. To date, about 200 out of 300 water filters have been replaced with filter-drums for the first time.
On the occasion, General Director of Karofi Vietnam Tran Trung Dung said that the company will continue to pursue its target “All Vietnam’s people can use clean water”, scheduled to finish by 2040. The company will mobilize other social activities to assist disadvantaged people in polluted areas nationwide with clean water sources.

Water is a human right! Water needed for drinking, cooking and basic hygiene as basis for survival must be available even for a person unable to pay.

But contrary to many other rights stipulated in the Declaration there must be limits: water to fill a private swimming pool or to wash a car, for instance, is not a free public good; rather it should be a normal commercial good covering at least the full cost of infrastructure, not subsidised or even distributed for free.

Recognizes the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights

Water is a fundamental human need. Each person on Earth requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean.

Polluted water isn’t just dirty—it’s deadly. Some 1.8 million people die every year of diarrheal diseases like cholera.

The United Nations considers universal access to clean water a basic human right, and an essential step towards improving living standards worldwide.

Water-poor communities are typically economically poor as well, their residents trapped in an ongoing cycle of poverty.

Education suffers when sick children miss school. Economic opportunities are routinely lost to the impacts of rampant illness and the time-consuming processes of acquiring water where it is not readily available. Children and women bear the brunt of these burdens.

Water is obviously essential for hydration and for food production—but sanitation is an equally important, and complementary, use of water. A lack of proper sanitation services not only breeds disease, it can rob people of their basic human dignity.

Many municipalities are avoiding full cost recovery by the tariffs charged to those who have tap water at home. They do it as a measure of ‘social support’ to the poor, but actually they only make the water for the more prosperous less expensive.
