Vu Phong will donate 50 SolarV solar lights to a significant community support project: the building of 50 toilets for 50 individual households with young girls in Hong Ha commune, A Luoi district, Thua Thien – Hue province.
This is a new project of The Development of Vietnam Endeavors Fund (D.O.V.E Fund). As a result, the D.O.V.E Fund has decided to fund the construction of 50 toilets for 50 families with girls in Hong Ha, a commune in the district bordering the Thua Thien – Hue province. There are still many poor families who do not have clean toilets and must build temporary houses to construct latrines. With this project, it means that, with the community’s help, 50 families will have new toilets with showers, brick walls and floors, and SolarV solar lights installed soon. These little girls will soon have access to clean and safe toilets.

The lack of toilets creates unnoticed security risks, especially for women and girls. Using filthy toilets raises the risk of diarrhea, typhoid, and other diseases. According to statistics, nearly 1,000 children under the age of five die every day around the world due to a lack of clean toilets. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), contaminated water and poor sanitation cause 9 percent of the world’s disease burden.
Furthermore, the lack of safe toilets increases the likelihood of girls being harassed and abused. According to the findings of a 2016 study published in India, women who went to the bathroom outside were twice as likely as those who used the toilet. Harassment, abuse, and being filmed and photographed are all risks associated with unsafe public restrooms. They develop into fears, phobias, and have a significant impact on women’s health and psychology, as well as the normal development of girls.

Each before-and-after photo shows how the girl’s daily living conditions have changed. Thanks to the investors of D.O.V.E. Fund and its companion units Hearts for Hue, we can always aim for better conditions – a better future – for the poor, especially disadvantaged children.
