And because little clean bodies deserve to wear clean clothes, five washing machines were also donated to the school. A wonderful group of volunteers in Shanghai also donated new clothes (and toys) to the children.
The water project made big news in Batang County, and the teachers believe that illness in the school will be reduced because the children will now be able to practice better hygiene habits, such as brushing their teeth and washing their hands in the new wash basins.
Our deepest thanks go out to the generous donor family, who not only financed the entire water project, but also helped to see it through fruition.
