Drought season in southern Vietnam continues to bring increased challenges to already vulnerable households. Impoverished families struggle to not only secure drinking water, but water that is needed for cooking, bathing, and washing clothes.
Samaritan’s Purse recently provided large capacity water tanks to support about 160 households during the months of drought. A village chief in one of the communities where they worked explained that families were previously storing water in clay pots that were dirty and insufficient to hold the large amount of water needed.
The water tank project is creating consistent access to water—something most families in the area have never experienced—and changing lives.
