Giving clean water to children living in the ‘SOS Children’s Villages’ in Greece
18% of Greece’s territory has been highlighted as nitrate pollution risk zones due to run-off contaminants from industrial and agricultural uses that end up in tap water.
Through the project “aQua4all” we are financing the installation and maintenance of clean, drinking water treatment systems in all homes of ‘SOS Children’s Villages’. The sole purpose of this project is to provide clean, fresh, potable, and hydrogen-rich water to children living in the SOS Children’s Villages in Greece
Each child has the right to grow up in a family, with love, respect, and security.
- Installation of 42 water treatment systems at the point of use (POU).
- 150 bath water treatment systems, in Athens, Thessaloniki, Thrace, and Crete.
- Maintenance of the water treatment systems for the next two years.
- Human resources, technician expenses, parts replacement costs.
