The supply of clean drinking water is one of the biggest problems in and around Mae Sot. The water is often taken from streams or rivers and boiled before drinking. However, this doesn't help to kill chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides that make people and especially children sick. The same water is used for washing and causes dangerous skin diseases and eczema.
The water filter system in our kitchen produces every day many thousand liter clean drinking water, which is delivered to schools and dormitories.
