Providing new water and wastewater systems for hospital in Vietnam.

Borouge supported Singapore based NGO LienAid to improve the water and sanitation facilities at the Thach Ha District Hospital, which serves the local community in one of the poorest provinces in Vietnam. Located 340 kms to the south of the city of Hanoi the hospital was in very poor condition when LienAid first visited it with a poor quality water supply, inadequate hand-washing facilities and untreated wastewater on the site.

Borouge provided the PE100 compound for the project and with the help of their local agent Han Huy Trading ensured that high quality PE pipes were available when required by the Lien Aid team. Quality pipe manufacturer Tifoplas based in Ho Chi Minh City produced all the PE100 pipes and delivered them to the hospital site in the summer of 2010.

These pipes have been used to deliver water from the nearby river to the newly constructed water treatment plant in the hospital compound and also to drain the wastewater from the hospital building to the new wastewater treatment facility. All the construction work has now been completed and the Lien Aid team are preparing to train the hospital maintenance staff in the operation of the various elements and officially hand over the project to the hospital management. As planned the hospital's toilet facilities have also been improved and hand-washing awareness raising campaigns carried out for both staff and patients.

All these tremendous improvements in the hospital facilities and the knowledge of the staff will undoubtedly improve the quality of the medical treatment for the patients in the hospital and the wellbeing of the community working and living close by.
