* UNICEF: New water scheme in Sri Lanka brings health and hope to thousands

If the world’s children and grandchildren are to have a secure future on this planet, the proper care of the world's water resources has to be continually addressed.


UNICEF’s representative in Sri Lanka, Philippe Duamelle recently joined the Sri Lankan president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, in officially opening a new UNICEF-funded water scheme that does just this.


Soundbite, Philippe Duamelle, UNICEF representative:
“Today is an important day as we see the water treatment plant becoming operational, and the quantity of drinking water available to the local population has tripled. This will have a very important impact on the children’s health, but also it will free a lot of time for the children and the parents who will not have to fetch the water, sometimes from long distances, and will have more time to study, play or to work.”


The US$10 million UNICEF project targets families hit hardest by the devastating 2004 tsunami. One such family is the Gunaratnes.


Soundbite, Mrs. Apsara Gunaratne, 30-years-old:
“I can’t tell you how severe the water problem was when my child was one year old. He had a high fever and was hospitalized for ten days due to a germ that entered his body from consuming polluted water. This problem has affected our lives. It has brought our life lots of hard ships.”


Happily those days are over for Mrs. Gunaratne and tens of thousands like her who now have crystal clear, safe water.


It is expected that by 2025 each person in Asia will have up to 35% less water than they did in 1950.
But this week the people of Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka have three times more safe water than last week.
