농촌의 식수,위생시설개선이 가져온 생활의 변화

Water and hygiene facilities change lives for families in rural Vietnam Students take an exercise break at An Thinh One Primary School in the northern mountainous region of Vietnam. Drum beats keep the stretching in step and on time… ensuring it fits its appointed slot in a highly ritualized school schedule. (students going to toilets/washing) This is another ritual students are asked to perform… a habit the teachers hope they will take home with them. Clean water and proper sanitation are rare luxuries in remote, rural regions of Vietnam, and knowledge of basic hygiene is poor. UNICEF is working with the Vietnamese government to provide these rural communities greater access to safe water. First by building the infrastructure – such as latrines and sanitation systems in kindergartens and schools… Then teaching children good hygiene, so they can learn to stay healthy. At An Thinh primary school, students take part in regular hygiene promotion classes, and take turns each week cleaning the toilets and water taps. Nguyen Thi Huyen, 10 years old: “The class is very useful because we know now we shouldn’t throw our garbage into the river and we should always wash our hands with soap to keep clean and prevent disease.” UNICEF is also helping build water systems outside the classroom, like this one in nearby Dai Phac commune. It purifies and pumps clean water directly to villagers’ homes… making a dramatic improvement in the lives of people like Bui Thi Binh. Until recently, she had to fetch water from a well down the road. Now she has more time to focus on the needs of her two children. Bui Thi Binh, Mother: “The water is cleaner than using the well. Before I had to go 3 or 4 times a day to fetch water. Now it’s easier because it’s in my home.” Giving a basic but vital resource that makes lives healthier, and offers the disadvantaged a better chance to break out of a cycle of poverty. In Yen Bai province, Vietnam, this is Steve Nettleton reporting for UNICEF Television. UNITE for children.
