One of our dream scholars, Mutita, is currently working as a school teacher in a remote area in Thailand. While working, she noticed that students and teachers do not have adequate access to drinking water due to the building's improper water filtration system. In order to repair the school's water filter, Smiles on Wings plans on raising $1,000. Although repairing the filter is only a short-term solution until we can replace the water filtration system, this repair will have life-changing impacts on the health of these students. We hope to bring rapid relief to these school children who suffer from illnesses due to drinking contaminated water. If you would like to support this Clean Water Project, please consider donating to Smiles on Wings.
Letter From Mutita:
The water filter in our school needs to be repaired. Without proper water filtration, our students are forced to bring water from home in buckets. Carrying water in buckets is difficult because they are heavy and oftentimes break and leak. If students do not have access to clean water from home they must resort to walking to neighboring villages water. Unfortunately, many children do not this option and only have access to contaminated water. These students often suffer from stomachaches, nausea, and gallstones. It is important that our school provides clean drinking water for the students for their health and wellbeing. This project will be life-changing for many students and we hope to finish this initiative before school starts.
