There are still many limitations for people in rural areas of Vietnam in access to clean water sources. To improve people’s access and use of clean water, in 2019, with the support of Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology (KICET), GNI tested quality of domestic water and water from drilled wells in Vinh Khang Commune (Ninh Khang Commune now), Vinh Loc District, Thanh Hoa Province.
In October 2020, KICET continues to support GNI in establishment of a system to filter water from drilled wells in Ninh Khang Commune. The system includes components to remove impurities, soften and supplement minerals in water, RO filter system produces 1,000 liter/hour, equipped with disinfection lighting and bottling system. Total cost of the system is more than 310 million Vietnam dongs. With filtration capacity up to 1,000 liter per hour, the system can supply water for about 4,000 ~ 5,000 people each day.
Through this activity, the Korean NGO hopes that not only people in Ninh Khang Commune have clean water to use every day but also schools, offices and residential areas in the project are of GNI in Vinh Loc District.
