Thanh Tam school in Can Gio, a mangrove swamp beyond Saigon , belongs to a local church. There are 75 disabled children aged 6 to 16. They are deaf or suffer Down's Syndrome or a physical handicap.
Fresh water is scarce. So water for the toilets is taken from the river through a special self-made pump. To save petrol, they made a reservoir on the bed of the river so that the tide fills the reservoir by itself. With the support of our Small Grant Scheme there is now enough water to keep the toilets clean.
