House of Refuge Orphanage Clean Water Project
Country of impact:
In 2015, Pastor Cyrus at the House of Refuge Orphanage in Myanmar shared the need for a water treatment system. In his words,
water is oily and smelly, it’s color changes into yellow after four or five hours of pumping in the water storage tank. Due to using dirty water, we all often suffer from stomach pain and diarrhea. The children get rashes and itchy skin from bathing in the water.
When we saw the water storage system they are using, we realized the problem is even worse than he described. We now feel an urgency to help them get clean water and a means to store it safely. The total cost to supply the orphanage with safe water is $1,900.
