As part of the LIFESAVER Thailand Clean Water Project, LIFESAVER also got the chance to help another Karen village in Doi Inthanon National Park.
The village of Ban Huay Luang is a much smaller village in comparison to Ban Hak Kia and already has two water tanks, but they are currently not working.
Most of the village have suffered from dysentery in the past year and Jim thought it would be lovely if we could give 10 LIFESAVER Aid jerrycans, 10 shower attachments and 10 replacement cartridges to this village to ensure they remain healthy particularly while they have no nearby clean water supply.
On the Wednesday afternoon, I demonstrated the technology and Ekachai and Jim assisted with any technical questions from the residents.
As I left, they thanked us for this wonderful gift. They could now have clean water to drink. They were very happy.
I returned to the village on the Saturday morning to distribute some of the LIFESAVER jerrycans but many of the villagers were in the paddy fields. I demonstrated the LIFESAVER jerrycan again, this time in my Karen tunic and then distributed 3 to some very happy recipients.
A job well done!
LIFESAVER has provided another 10 Karen families with access to clean, sterile drinking water which equates to 300,000 litres of lifesaving bacteria free water.
