In mid-September, CWS Vietnam’s team worked with other emergency responders to support vulnerable families in Mu Cang Chai village, whose homes were damaged or destroyed in a flash flooding following severe rains. After first sharing hygiene kits for immediate use, it was agreed that CWS would follow up to mitigate future safe water shortages by supplying household water storage tanks to be retrofitted to Government-provided gravity-fed water pipes. This way, families can at least have clean water while flooding, landslides and other changing climate effects harm so many other aspects of their lives.
