Help Project Save Our Surf (PSOS) bring relief to children in Vietnam currently suffering from a lack of access to clean water. Founded by surfer, actress and activist Tanna Frederick, PSOS is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping the ocean clean and pollution-free.
This month, PSOS Founder Tanna Frederick, her father David Frederick (a Vietnam veteran) and PSOS President Sydney Shand, will travel to Vietnam to embark on PSOS’s latest project. Working side by side with SOS Children’s Villages, PSOS will install water filters in Ben Tre and Bi Tre, two rural areas of Vietnam.
Most of the families set to receive water filters from Project Save Our Surf live in areas unreachable by car. Therefore SOS volunteers will have to hike to most of the locations.
Ben Tre in southern Vietnam is located on the banks of Makong Delta River. “The standard of living there is a world away and as a result young children from destitute families are prone to become victims of human trafficking. Ben Tre is one of the poorest provinces in the region. The SOS Children’s Villages Vietnam is a child development organization that supports orphan children who have lost their parents,” added Frederick.
Currently there are 13 SOS Children’s Villages throughout Vietnam as well as two new villages under construction and set to open next year. In each village, there are 15 – 25 houses, each a home to 50 children. SOS has already taken care of more than 3,500 children in each village.
The MPV water filtration system used by PSOS is the fastest, easiest and most cost efficient way to get pure portable water to communities in need. Each filter costs $50.00 and one filter alone provides fresh, clean water for up to 100 people daily. The lifetime of one filter will provide one million gallons of clean water for the people of Vietnam.
Help PSOS raise $10,000 dollars for water filters, buckets, and supplies so they can provide relief to those in Vietnam. With your support, children and families in Ben Tre and Bi Tre will be given hope for a better future. Click here to donate to and learn more about Project Save Our Surf.
