Education

Education for poor and handicapped children in Vietnam means the best start possible.
Investing in children and equipping them with a sound education is fundamental to ending the cycle of poverty. Children of Vietnam provides education for poor and handicapped children in Vietnam.

Give Water

Give Water

Although drinking water is something that is available by opening a faucet in any Western country, this is a privilege which the West has. In a country like Cambodia, the main source of any villager's drinking water will come from rain fall. Water is collected in huge cement structures which store it for a long period of time. However, this creates unsafe environment parasites, and can also be the source of mosquito reproduction. This means that many people, especially children, get sick with diseases which can be easily treated. However, it is extremely expensive to receive treatment and adequate chemicals to purify the water.
Few personnel told me that in the beginning of the Moonlight Humanity history, many children got sick due to poor quality drinking water.
Contaminated Water
Contaminated also comes from improper waste disposal. Everyone throws their trash on the floor behind the building where they cook, clean or live. This trash just sits in mucky water, which is part of fields that produce their food. This trash is everywhere in the country, especially plastic bags. This trash leaks some toxins into the ground, which then gets into the water, through surface or ground water.
Lack of infrastructure
The lack of appropriate infrastructure in dealing with the excess rain during the rainy season is also a great issue. Every time it rains, the water stagnates in the area, which creates saturated unstable soils, and attracts unwanted living things such as snakes and mosquitoes. Also in the markets, this is an issue with run off toxins being carried through highly congested areas in the cities. This stagnating water also will create unstable grounds for roads, which are mostly dirt roads in this country, creating bad conditions for driving the motorcycles, which is the main form of transportation in Asia.

Sanitation

Sanitation

Among the challenges are continued widespread water pollution, poor service quality, low access to improved sanitation in rural areas, poor sustainability of rural water systems, insufficient cost recovery for urban sanitation, and the declining availability of foreign grant and soft loan funding.
Most Vietnamese Cham Community receive water from a tap in the yard or a public tap in the village from where they have to carry water to their home. In 2010, only 23% of Vietnamese had a tap in their home.
Tap water for the Cham Community in the rural areas share was only 8%. In 2009 over 200 out of approximately 650 district towns did not have any piped water system. Groundwater is polluted by ammonium with a concentration that is 5 to 10 times (7–20 mg/l) higher than the allowed standard.
